“Bought the book after I watched the first of the trilogy (The Fellowship of the Ring), and finished reading only after watching the final installment (The Return of the King) together with extended versions of the first 2 due to other commitments..LOL guess saved my brain from having to squeeze out imaginations to accompany my reading.
Amazing book, amazing trilogy. The book is so much more detailed in describing each event, scenes and the characters but apart from the slight deviation, and some events omitted, the movie was excellent too. Stunning effects that one might even believed that such events could really have taken place long, long ago, when wizards, sorcerers, mosters, among other creatures, walked the Earth. Sounds far-fetched? Well, I'm more of a believer of things in the past compared to science fiction of the future, maybe coz it's yet to happen =P
Anyway, sounded like I'm reviewing the movie LOL but well, without the book, there would NEVER have been the trilogy in the first place so two thumbs up! ;) ”
