"Il Signore degli Anelli" è un romanzo d'eccezione, al di fuori del tempo: chiarissimo ed enigmatico, semplice e sublime. Esso dona alla felicità del lettore ciò che la narrativa del nostro secolo sembrava incapace di offrire: avventure in luoghi remoti e terribili, episodi d'inesauribile allegria, segreti paurosi che si svelano a poco a poco, draghi crudeli e alberi che camminano, città d'argento e di diamante poco lontane da necropoli tenebrose in cui dimorano esseri che spaventano solo al nominarli, urti giganteschi di eserciti luminosi e oscuri; e tutto questo in un mondo immaginario ma ricostruito con cura meticolosa, e in effetti assolutamente verosimile, perché dietro i suoi simboli si nasconde una realtà che dura oltre e malgrado la storia: la lotta, senza tregua, fra il bene e il male. Leggenda e fiaba, tragedia e poema cavalleresco, il romanzo di Tolkien è in realtà un'allegoria della condizione umana che ripropone in chiave moderna i miti antichi.

not a review and there probably won't be one any time soon. i also won't be climbing Mount Everest in the near future. but here are some cool illustrations that i found and want to share. World of the Ring by Jian Guo
Twenty-five years ago I'd have given The Lord of the Rings my highest possible praise. I came to Tolkien's masterpiece on my own, and that meant much to me at twelve. The only books that had been reached by me alone were books on mythology and horror. Everything else I read, from DH Lawrence to Hemi Leggi tutto
Writing a review of this masterpiece is impossible. I can’t do it. There’s too much to talk about and I love it far too much to articulate my thoughts in a normal way. So instead I’ve picked one element of each book that I liked the most (taken from my list of ten on each review) and added them here Leggi tutto
One of the greatest trilogies of all time and certainly the measuring stick to which all subsequent fantasy-style writing is compared, The Lord of the Rings trilogy still stands at the top of the stack. Its realism, the characters and monsters, the storyline, the epic battles, and the quest motif ar Leggi tutto

The true source of the fantasy fiction genre. Tolkien has spawned so many fantasy writers since The Lord Of The Rings went into print. I love all the earlier ones too like Verne and Carrol and CS Lewis but The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings its like an institution.🐯👍 Who else, besides me, has the n Leggi tutto

The Fellowship of the Ring begins with the Shire and winds its way through the barren lands that lie on the way to Mordor. I tried to read this part of the book once, but DNF it then. Then I picked up the trilogy bound in one volume and went through it fairly steadily. I've read that Tolkien wasn't a Leggi tutto
