Rezension bezieht sich auf: Lord of the Rings (Taschenbuch)
I don't like fantasy and so far I have never managed to finish a fantasy or sci-fi book, although I am otherwise an avid reader.
But this is really different and now I am already well into the second part of the trilogy. I have bought the first part years ago after several English friends recommended it as a classic but I never really could bring myself to actually read it. Now, with announcements that LoTR was going to be filmed and the Harry-Potter craze going on I remembered the book and read it. I don't know what really makes the atmosphere that is so successfully created, I guess it's the lovingly rendered description of the characters, different settings, sceneries and landscapes (which surprisingly enough is never boring), combined with a page-turning plot. This makes you drawn right into the story and accept this fantasy world as it is and it also makes as a (or sometimes not so nice - after all here, too, it is just the ever-recurring theme of good against bad) escape from the real world.
All in all I can fully recommend this book, even to people who would not normally go for fantasy.
