4.0 von 5 Sternen A simple, yet great little book, 23. November 1999
Sometimes the simplest things are the most moving. Nothing in this book is a great leap in philosophy, it's merely a reminder of all the things we already know but have either forgotten or have taken for granted. Those looking for cold philosophy can look elsewhere; those looking for a few warm words from a kind man should read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The original and, still, the best, 7. Juli 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Fellowship of the Ring (Taschenbuch)
I'm an avid reader, though not a fantasy/sci-fi fan under normal circumstances and I've read many of the more well-known works, many of which I enjoyed thoroughly. The Lord of the Rings, of all the books I've read, is my unquestionable favorite. No other book is so rich and detailed with the history and peoples of its world and no other book tells a tale of such magnitude and beauty. So many people today have such short attention spans and require such consistant melodrama that it's no wonder the beauty and detail of Tolkein's masterpiece ends up wasted. I've read The Lord of the Rings many times and know the story and its conclusion well but I don't read them for the story anymore, I read them to return to Middle Earth.
For anyone who has yet to read these books, I envy you.
