The prequel to The Lord of the Rings—The Hobbit—is now a major motion picture directed by Peter Jackson
THE GREATEST FANTASY EPIC OF OUR TIME
While the evil might of the Dark Lord Sauron swarms out to conquer all Middle-earth, Frodo and Sam struggle deep into Mordor, seat of Sauron’s power. To defeat the Dark Lord, the One Ring, ruler of all the accursed Rings of Power, must be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom. But the way is impossibly hard, and Frodo is weakening. Weighed down by the compulsion of the Ring, he begins finally to despair.
The awesome conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, beloved by millions of readers around the world.
“There are very few works of genius in recent literature. This is one.”—The Nation
