About this deal

I love these words from Tolkien's introduction: "Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible, and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer. The Lord of The Rings is much more pure expression of Mr Tolkien's personality and how he sees the world. The book did have very minor little scratches but I don't really care abt that, I feel like it adds to them.

R. Tolkien's three volume masterpiece is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale--a story of high and heroic adventure set in the unforgettable landscape of Middle-earth. Our Adult Fiction Books, Range includes Classics Novels, Comic Books, Crime, Thriller, Mystery Novels, General Fiction, Horror, Romance, Science Fiction and War. Now, unlike his bestie Clive Staples Lewis, Tolkien was a perfectionist and took his sweet time writing his books. This central schism makes his work much less true to the tradition than Anderson's The Broken Sword, which was published the same year.unwilling to do anything but read the next sentence, next paragraph, next page, next chapter, then next book until you finally wave goodbye to Bilbo, Frodo, Gandolph and the elves as they . Tolkien describes Hobbits: "I picture a fairly human figure, not a kind of fairy rabbit as some of my British reviewers seem to fancy: fattish in the stomach, shortish in the leg. Registered address: Unit 5, Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, LE5 3EF, United kingdom. His books have been translated into over 50 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide. He gave characters similar names to represent other historical traditions: that of common prefixes or suffixes, of a house line adopting similar names for fathers, sons, and brothers.

All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring – the ring that rules them all – which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. At any rate, I come from a background in which I have come to believe that "man is that he might have joy.

Known to millions around the world as the author of The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien spent most of his life teaching at the University of Oxford where he was a distinguished academic in the fields of Old and Middle English and Old Norse.

All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you! In some ways, his central, conflicted role resembles Eddison's Lord Gro, whose work inspired Tolkien. The vivid descriptions of the Shire, Rivendell, and other mesmerizing landscapes, coupled with the charming and eccentric characters, transported me to a world brimming with wonder.
