On Jul 14 2022, a reader said:
The Lord of the Rings is in my opinion the best story in the fantasy genre. The amount of detail that Tolkien pours into his work brings fictional characters, histories, and cultures to life. I have never read another book in this genre with the same level of craftsmanship.
On Dec 4 2014, a reader said:
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are simply fantastic, I would recommend them to one and all. I have read them numerous times and much better than the movies which are good.
