Nice, but damaged in delivery

by Terence P on Aug 16, 2012

The books are very nice, came in new condition & shrink-wrapped. Pages & illustrations are beautiful. They look nice on the shelf. Unfortunately set was damaged slightly in shipping-dropped or something, causing the corner of a couple outer boards to be crumpled. Delivery also took some time.


The Odyssey of our time

by MARIO S on Nov 10, 2011

"The Lord of the Rings" is certainly one of the most important works of modern times. It can be seen as a paradigm of 900. The mind of the excellent author manages to compress into a story that tells of ages and seemingly distant places, the basic essence of the transformation (which took place in 900) of human societies in the contemporary global society. This transformation has occurred through two world wars and a "cold war" and in Middle-earth they are transformed in the Battle of Helm's Deep and in the fields of Pelennor. Tolkien is a visionary man. The Lord of the Rings work that leads us away.

Classic Ballentine Editions

by netchoo on Jul 31, 2008

Apparently people either love reading Tolkien's Lord of the Rings or they find it boring. I've read and reread the books at least ten times, mostly in the late 1960's, but also when I read the books aloud to my children, especially when my son was quite ill. He, in turn, read the stories many times when he was in high school, and my original Ballentine books were amess. No wonder I was thrilled to get my hands on another set of the Ballentine paperbacks in quite good condition! It's great to have this classic tale in a set that holds so many treasured memories.
