News: Lord of the Rings Box Set Re-Release Date

“You shall not pass!”

Author: J R R Tolkien

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Age: YA+

Released: 30th August 2012 (UK version)

Lord of the Rings is an immortal series. I remember attempting to read it before, but the heavy volumes and the sheer epic scope of the series eventually beat me and I remember abandoning it halfway through the first book.

Now, I’m happy to say that my reading level is up to par and stories don’t get any meatier than this so… it’s a good thing a box set containing SEVEN volumes is being released. They break down this epic story into manageable (and easy to hold) chunks.

Definitely have a look if you’re new to the stories, or like me have been eying the books for a while.


Continuing the story of The Hobbit, this seven-volume paperback boxed set of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings is a collection to treasure. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power; the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring – the ring that rules them all – which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Discover the incredible epic journey of Frodo in a celebratory seven-volume boxed set of fantasy classic, The Lord of the Rings.


Available: Waterstones Hardback £19.99.
