How good is Lord of the Rings book series by J.R.R. Tolkein?

Answer by Rohan Golwalkar:

To start with : it is a long but rewarding read – i am listing few reasons why reader may enjoy this :
  • An unlikely hero : Frodo takes up a task way above his ability.
  • Whole bunch of warriors commit to guard him and to make sure he finishes his task : commitment/loyalty
  • Great Friendship : especially between Sam and Frodo
  • Some remarkable creatures : Gollum
  • Imaginative writing : Tolkien created a world so elaborate, at times one has to wonder how he achieved it.
  • Brilliant evil villains
  • Lot of magic and suspense and thrilling moments
  • Solid war sequences
All and all it is a great world he created and it all ties up very nicely : it won't be easy for a non-reader or beginner – but if you keep at it – it will be rewarding.
Note: to cheat you can watch the LOTR trilogy Directed by Peter Jackson and then read the book to further enhance the experience.
