By now most Fantasy fans have seen Peter Jackson’s wondrous series of films based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but so much was cut from the source material in order to make the film adaptations of these books, which have ensnared generation after generation of high school students and beyond.
All three novels (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King) are now available in a single, 50th Anniversary edition Kindle book, and anyone who loved the movies will find much more to love in the complete novels as Tolkien wrote them.
This is a collection that’s earned its place among the classics in any digital library, and now you can have all three books in a single volume. The individual Kindle books are currently priced at $9.99 each, and that makes this One Volume edition a bargain. Better yet, since Kindle books are searchable, having all three books together makes it much easier to cross-reference characters, events and place names across the saga. From Amazon:
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them…
In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.
From Sauron’s fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.
When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.
The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.
This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index.
