5.0 von 5 Sternen simply wonderful
I was one of those unfortunate people who saw the movie first and some time later moved on to reading the book. And I have to say, that it is far better than the film. I do not want to say that the movie is bad, but the story is very much shortened and in the book there is so much more information given to understand the background of the whole story better...

2.0 von 5 Sternen preisgünstig, aber mäßige Verarbeitung
Taschenbuchausgabe mit akzeptabler Verarbeitung, aber da der Text sehr nahe der Buchmitte ist und die Schrift sehr eng geschrieben ist, nur für Sparfüchse geeignet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein Muß - nicht nur für Fantasy Fans!, 2. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Lord of the Rings 1. The Fellowship of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings) (Taschenbuch)
Als erklärter Science-Fiction Fan stand ich diesem Buch zunächst skeptisch gegenüber, aber spätestens nach dem ersten Kapitel hat auch mich das Hobbit-Fieber ergriffen. Bei Tolkiens detailierten und fantasievollen Schreibart läßt er bei dem Leser gar nicht erst den Gedanken aufkommen, daß Hobbits, Elfen und Zauberer nicht existieren.
Ein ideales Buch um der Realität für ein paar Stunden zu entfliehen...
Englisch-Anfängern ist es allerdings weniger zu empfehlen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The one that defined the Genre, 30. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
What is power, what is corruption, who is good,who is evil, who is strong , who is weak. Who is you're hero, what makes the hero great. This is the grandaddy of all modern fantasy fiction. If you have read any of this genre and were put off, remember..all others are pale shadows...shadows of shadows of this truely remarkable and living book. It has it all, love, war, magic, sorrow, pain and truth. It has such a depth of story telling that even on the second or third read through, you will find more significance than the last. And the poetry, just read it aloud, read the songs. Many fantasy writers (and straight fiction writers as well) have tried the pen of the poet in thier prose, and failed, Tolkien did not .Tolkien wrote something subtle and beautiful in these books. If you think it is just another hack-and-slash, magic and mayhem pulp novel, then I Dare you to read them. And I truly envy those who have yet to read them, because, they get to read it for the first time, and oh, the wonder you will find.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein hervorragendes Hörbuch, 28. April 2006
Hierbei handelt es sich um die Hörbuchversion des ersten Buchs (The Fellowship of the Ring, unterteilt in Buch 1 und 2) von Tolkiens Lord of the Rings, wie der Titel schon besagt. Es ist eine digital aufgearbeitete Fassung der Aufnahmen von 1990.

Zur Fassung des ersten Buchs sei gesagt, dass der Prolog (unter anderem „Concerning Hobbits“) an das Ende vom Hörbuch von Return of the King verschoben worden ist. Das Vorwort findet man wie gewohnt zu Beginn. Es ist aber nicht gekürzt worden und in diesem Fall findet man den erwähnten Teil des Buchs nur an letzter Stelle. Für das Verständnis der Geschichte und der Welt in der sie spielt mag es daher sinnvoll sein diesen Teil als ersten zu hören. Die beiliegenden Verzeichnisse des jeweiligen CD-Inhalts sind dabei sehr nützlich.

Zur Stimme von Rob Inglis sei gesagt, dass er nur einen leichten Akzent hat. Das auffälligste dürfte sein rollendes „R“ sein. Störend wird sein Akzent nie, auch wenn er bestimmte Personen mit anderer Stimmlage und Betonung ließt. Es wird immer sehr deutlich gelesen.

Sein Lesestil führt aber dazu, dass selbst „aufregende Stellen“ in „nur mäßig aufgeregter“ Stimme gelesen werden. Hierbei handelt es sich eben auch um kein Hörspiel, sondern um ein Hörbuch. Wenn man seinen Kindern ein Buch vorließt, würde man es wohl ähnlich handhaben, manche Hörer mag es aber stören.

Nicht störend und sicher auch nachvollziehbar ist, dass hin und wieder Personen mit einer „falschen“ Stimmlage gelesen werden. Dennoch ein Abzug. Auch wechselt hin und wieder die Stimmlage des Erzählers. Es handelt sich wohl um verschiedene Aufnahmen. Auch nicht so elegant, aber wohl nur schwer anders zu lösen. Das kommt in jedem Buch vor, besonders ist es mir im ersten aufgefallen.

Im Allgemeinen sei gesagt, dass man die Stimme und Leseweise erst Probehören sollte. Es mag sein, dass man sich an der Stimme stört, was bei so vielen Stunden das Vergnügen sicher trüben wird. Des Weiteren handelt es sich um keine billige Investition. Schade, wenn es sich um eine handelt, die man später bereut.

Für mich hat sich jedes Buch auch in seiner Hörbuchfassung gelohnt. Es ist schön die englische Sprache auch wieder hören zu können. Wenn die Augen müde sind, aber man doch noch nicht zu müde, so bietet jedes der drei Hörbücher eine großartige Beschäftigung in Form von vergnüglichem Folgen der Geschichte.

Im Übrigen kann man auch einige Stunden auf einem IPod oder vergleichbaren Geräten mitnehmen, so spart man sich das CD-Wechseln nach etwa jeder Stunde. Für Käufer mit Audio-DVD-Spielern mag das eine Alternative sein...

Die CDs und ihre Boxen zu schonen lohnt sich auch alle mal, da sowohl als auch wunderschön illustriert worden sind.

Trotz der erwähnten Mängel 5 Sterne. Es handelt sich um ein hervorragendes Produkt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Revelations of The Hobbit, 2. Februar 2000
The Fellowship of the Ring is the first segment of the greatest literary masterpiece ever written, The Lord of the Rings. Lots of people call it a trilogy, but I can only agree with that idea in that the three segments were initially published seperately in the years 1954, 1955, and 1956. Besides that, one has to notice that each segment is incomplete without the others. A trilogy would contain three complete stories, like the original Star Wars trilogy. Well, its time I got on with my two cents of TFOTR. After The Hobbit was published, the fantasy genre was revived in a way that gave Arthur and his knights a run for their money. Fantasy was back, 20th century style. People begged for a sequel, and Tolkien delivered one beyond anybody's expectations and imagination. TFOTR begins to answer the questions that resulted at the end of The Hobbit. This, I feel, is its main purpose. It doesn't have as much action as the two later segments, but instead focuses on why a new quest is to begin. It does have its moments of action, but most of suspense and intrigue comes from revelations. Thats why The Hobbit should be read first. It would be a mistake not to. It is true that is somwhat slow in the beginning, but the suspense and wonder of a ruling ring just glides in the story. Suddenly, what happened with Bilbo's quest becomes very importent. It was in TFOTR that Tolkien introduced Middle-Earth and its history. A person forgets that they're reading fantasy in LOTR. It feels very real, and once TFOTR gets though the beginning, it doesn't let go. The only real bad part is that it leaves you hanging in the end, forcing you to read The Two Towers and making you wish that you had a single volume edition. I've been to Middle-Earth, and I deeply regreted having to leave for a while. Read this masterpiece (LOTR) before you die. You'll be incomplete if you don't.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Adventure beyond your imagination., 26. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The young hobbit Frodo Baggins has been chosen to go on a daring quest.
A few words from the encourager. I have always enjoyed a good fantasy tale, and a heroic quest. It all started when I saw the animated cartoon based on the best selling book The Hobbit. Back then I was too young to read a thick novel.
Aventualy I read the book The Hobbit. Now I am reading the conclusion series The Lord of the Rings. I have just finnished volume one The Fellowship of the ring, and I will be reading volume two The two towers very soon.
The Fellowship of the Ring is focused on the young hobbit Frodo, and the evil one ring.
If you do not know a Hobbit is a being slightly shorter than a dwarf, they have leathery and hairy feet, and often curly hair.
Frodo, along with his eight companions Sam, Pippin, Merry, Aragorn, Boromir, Gandalf, Gimli, and Legolas, must send the ring into the fire it was created.
The one rinc can help the evil sorcerer Souron destroy all good in middle earth.
Can Frodo, and his companions put the ring into the fires of Mount Doom? Read the book, and find out.
I sugest you read The Hobbit before you read The Lord of the Rings , because it will help you understand the story line of the conclusion.
The only thing I don't like about this book, is it started to bore me for a while, but my interest returned. Never give up if it bores you, because your interest will return!
If you like a daring quest, heroic adventures, and a good story line The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings are the books for you.
I will end this with a quote from the book.
In elven "Ash nazg durbatuluk, ash nazg gimbitul, ash nazg thrakatuluk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul!"
In English "One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unparalleled! A Literary Masterpiece worthy of the Bard, 5. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Lord of the Rings (Taschenbuch)
I first read his books when I was in 4th grade and every two years or so I return. I cannot think of another book in print (other than the Bible) that people return to again and again throughout their lives. Tolkien made you feel his tale. His mastery of language allowed us to experience vividly the grandeur of Middle Earth. The languages, cultures and histories of its peoples are rich and real as any from ours. The elvish and dwarven tongues are not just nonsensical sounds slapped together but actual languages that he laboured to produce. The poetry and the songs added a weave to the tapestry of cultures that demanded to be believed. The characters that he breathed life into were real in every sense. Their thoughts acts and motivations were not simply one dimensional: Good men were bad, the brilliant made errors, some people were lucky, others not so, the herioc last stand didn't always save the day, war is very ugly and glory is fleeting, travelling on foot is very hard especially over mountains and through wastelands, eating a good meal, drinking good beer and smoking a pipe is a nice way to spend an evening. Anyone who has ever been in the military would appreciate the proper place given to the joy of a simple bath, rest and food after leagues of cross country travelling. I do not despise those who cannot wade through the reality in this fantasy. It is on a level that some may find daunting. I agree with the fellow described it as art, high art. Not everyone will get it, not everyone can "get" it. I must in closing, take a parting shot at those who would place Robert Jordan near him let alone over him (I blame America's education system). If it wasn't for Tolkien, Jordan would have had to rip off someone with talent closer to his own, assuring you of a tale even more dreadful than the one he spun. You won't see reviews about people not being able to comprehend his work, because it is already dumbed down for the masses. There is a reason whyTolkien's work is so beloved, because it is simply that good and that unique. The man himself is an interesting study and worthy of some time. If you love the written word...read this it will change you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Transcends Time! Will Endure Alongside Homer years ahead., 24. Mai 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Lord of the Rings (Taschenbuch)
I was just checking this site out for the first time, and I have to leave this comment, those who said this novel is boring should learn the virtue of patience and understanding. The first portion of the book many claim to be boring, in fact it is just slow and is imperative to developing the deep rich story to unfold, much like Stephen King does in his novels(whadda you know he's the most reknowned author of Horror in the world!)so they are quite obviously a key component to the story, while in many novels I read I was left to guess about a character or there were just flat characters. This book will go down in history along with it's other companions. The number of publications Tolkien's many works have recieved is proof of the quality of his work which has set the standard for fantasy writing, which remains unparalleled to this day. Few authors compare to Tolkien, but these in my opinion come closest. Terry Brooks, David Eddings and the duo(Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman). There are many other authors which you already know who write forgettable novels. Tolkien's works are unforgettable and I haven't read this trilogy for 5 or 6 years, when I was in 6th or 7th grade and I only read it once, and I can recall that I did not want it to end, for several days afterward I would just lay flabbergasted on my bed after school and in the morning and dream about the vivid characters and places which Tolkien had unfolded me, I can still remember the entire story after not having turned a page since the years I read it. I have read many other fantasy books and most I found to be the same predictable formula which quickly becomes boring. Sticking through with the remainder of this series you will discover for yourself how Tolkien stands apart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "A Quest for Truth, Beauty & Goodness For All Mankind.", 30. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Lord of the Rings (Taschenbuch)
"The Lord of the Rings" stands alone in fantasy fiction as the supreme work produced in world literature.
The story involves a quest, adventures, battles, intrigues, plots and counter-plots, deaths and an epic climax that startles the senses.
Frodo Baggins - a peaceful citizen of the Shire, becomes involved in the events of "Middle-Earth" that consume every inhabitant of this mystical world.
Frodo and his fellow inhabitants become part of a majestic drama being played out.
A magical "Ring" comes into his possession and only he can resolve the terrible consequences facing "Middle-Earth" by destroying the "Ring" in the "Cracks of Doom" at Mt. Doom.
The adventure begins when Gandolf the Wizard determines that the one ring to rule them all - is the "Ring" that Frodo possess. The adventures that follow are exhilerating. The novels begins slowly and the suspense builds and builds.
The author - J.R.R. Tolkien fully develops over 200 major characters in this epic work. The work involves the Quest for Truth, Beauty and Goodness.
Against overwhelming odds and the might of terrible armies - the hobbit Frodo Baggins overcomes battle injuries, starvation, greed, deceptions, treason and evil to triumph over vastly superior forces.
I have read this story 9 times - and rank it as the best story ever written in World Literature. Prepare yourself for the read of a lifetime - be sure to obtain a decent map of "Middle-Earth."
The adventure awaiting you in "The Lord of the Rings" is beyond imagination. I look forward to reading this epic again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A mysterious novel, 7. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The Fellowship of the Ring has loads of mystery in just the first chapter. My curiousity led me to finish it and read as many books by this author as I could find.It is a little difficult to understand if you have not first read The Hobbit. J.R.R. Tolkien never ceases to amaze his readers and this living proof is just one out of his many books surrounding the world of The Hobbit.

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Lord of the Rings (Taschenbuch)
everyone told me that this first book was in fact a bit boring but that the other two parts were much more enthusiastic. i don't see why because i'm just reading the 2nd part now. 1st part is as great as the 2nd one(as far as i've read of the 2nd part).i just loved it and felt myself living in that world too. i could even cry when i thought that Gandalf was dead forever.
