One of the best stories ever written

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Good for all age groups. Wonderful story.

Cons:Patience is a requirement for some parts of the books.

The Bottom Line: I would recommend the Lord of the Rings for anyone. It's a classic in the truest sense of the word.


The Lord of the Rings is one of the best and most versatile stories I've ever read. It includes something for readers of every genre. It has action, adventure, romance, fantasy, drama, horror, and almost anything else one could name. It doesn't include anything that would make it unfit for children to read, yet it isn't too simple for an adult. One can read it over and over without ever tiring of it. Actually, every time I read it, I catch something new or understand a part I didn't understand before. There are enough characters that anyone can find one or more to favor. Best of all, it has a happy ending!
