Oversized illustrated hardback edition of the second part of JRR Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, fully reset and featuring full-page watercolour paintings by award-winning artist, Alan Lee. Celebrated Tolkien artist Alan Lee's lavishly illustrated volume tells the story of Frodo and the Companions of the Ring who have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in the battle with an evil spirit in the Mines of Moria; and at the Falls of Rauros, Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape the rest of the company were attacked by Orcs. Now they continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin -- alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

        This is a great book. Tolkien is great for advanced Junior High and even Middle school students. This being the second Lord Of The Rings, it's just as good as the first book, which is what all readers want to hear!

                  I never read this book before. 1.the best part of this book is that the main part of this book is about this curse witch is set by a magical ring. 2.All of this action and adventure is cool. They have to fight EVIL people like the white wizard. that's all for it wraps it up!
