“For this marvellous story Tolkien has created his own mythology, and woven a spell-binding tale around the momentous struggle for the magic Ring; the eternal struggle between Good and Evil. He gives us a fantastic diversity of scene (wars, migrations, even whole epochs), and of characters – dwarves, elves, dragons, as well as races of men. And never for a moment during the 1,000-page tale does his inspiration flag, and nor does the reader’s belief in the magical world Tolkien has created.” (from the inside dust jacket)
