Publisher's Weekly Review

For Tolkien fans comes The Magical Worlds of the Lord of the Rings: The Amazing Myths, Legends, and Facts Behind the Masterpiece, by David Colbert. This illustrated unauthorized tie-in will mostly appeal to Tolkien neophytes with its short chapters headed by such questions as "Why Is Frodo the Ring-bearer?" and "Was Gollum Ever Good?"
