Depuis sa publication en 1954-1955, le récit des aventures de Frodo et de ses compagnons, traversant la Terre du Milieu au péril de leur vie pour détruire l'Anneau forgé par Sauron, a enchanté des dizaines de millions de lecteurs, de tous les âges. Chef-d'œuvre de la fantasy, découverte d'un monde imaginaire, de sa géographie, de son histoire et de ses langues, mais aussi réflexion sur le pouvoir et la mort, Le Seigneur des Anneaux est sans équivalent par sa puissance d'évocation, son souffle et son ampleur. Cette nouvelle traduction prend en compte la dernière version du texte anglais, les indications laissées par Tolkien à l'intention des traducteurs et les découvertes permises par les publications posthumes proposées par Christopher Tolkien. Ce volume contient 18 illustrations d'Alan Lee, entièrement re-numérisées, d'une qualité inégalée, ainsi que deux cartes (en couleur) de la Terre du Milieu et du Comté.

In 1980 Heinlein published a novel called The Number of the Beast. It involved parallel universes, The World as Fiction, and dragged in Lazarus Long, as Heinlein seemed to do in most of his later books. While parts of it were fun, it was also confusing and disjointed in my opinion. I will read any Heinlein for the writing alone, so I am a fan (in fact, I was for a time the webmaster for The Heinlein Society), but I can see that some of his stuff is better than others. So when I heard there was an alternate version of this novel, I had to check it out. And The Pursuit of the Pankera keeps the same basic setting and has the same beginning as The Number of the Beast, but I think it is much better. The plot is a lot more cohesive and the novel just flows …

The book is a collection of interviews from the brave fishermen involved in the rescue operations during the 2018 Kerala floods.



In the Lucid writings, the author narrates the events of bravery, reactions of the affected humans, how each one put their life on the boat leaving behind the economic distress with one mission to save lives, and how victims react in the most unexpected line of religion and caste.



Along with the incidents, the author mentions the history and background of the place, fishermen, society, and the state. As a result, the book reaches closer to any reader. The conditions these fishermen faced during the rescue is beyond normal human capacity.



The book is written in an accessible and straightforward manner. You can read it in a single sitting. The page after page, you can witness the generosity, humanness, dedication, simplicity, and bravery of the fishermen folks.



Kudos for …

I imagine most people are familiar with this work, either from reading the original novel or from the recent film series. This book was written as a children's fantasy by Tolkien back in the 1930s, and set the stage for the later Lord of the Rings. The plot is about a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins who is invited to join a company of dwarves who wish to recover their treasure from the dragon Smaug. Bilbo, who had been a pretty simple home-bound soul changes dramatically through the events he experiences and becomes someone much different.



This book was lauded on its publication and deservedly so.

It scarcely seems necessary to do a review of this work, it is so well known, and recently turned into a movie series to boot. It is the Platonic ideal of the epic high fantasy genre, and at the heart of Tolkien's work through his life. The first effort in this fantasy world was the children's book The Hobbit, but as it was successful Tolkien's publisher wanted more, and Tolkien obliged. Originally it was intended that the The Lord of the Rings would be the first volume, with the Silmarillion as volume 2, but the publisher decided to break it into three volumes (though each of those three has two parts, so one could as well call it a six-volume work). The overall summary is that the dark lord Sauron created Rings of Power: Three for Elves, 7 for Dwarves, and 9 for Men. Then he created the One …

I debated how many stars to give. I profess as a teen (and I have not reread it since then, though I keep meaning to), I actually struggled to read through the whole thing in one go, even though there were large chunks of the story I quite enjoyed, the long travel sequences or 'hey look at my skill with languages' parts were not quite my thing. I primarily give it the rating it has because it handles its classic story much better than most of the rip-offs that come after it, although this will not be fully obvious until the ending, and actually has something interesting to say.



The ending is strangely realistic once you cut the fantasy part of 'They just tossed a ring into a volcano' away, and this is possibly because of Tolkien's view being so heavily colored by actual war. It is easy to come …

Kudos to Rob Inglis for creating a different voice for each hobbit and dwarf and wizard and Esgaroth resident and elf and spider and dragon, and actually singing the songs!!??!?!

The first time I read The Hobbit I was 14. Now, 20 years later I've enjoyed it in English and even the translation is really good, reading Tolkien in his language it's a different thing. The expressiveness of his prose is a really different to the type of English texts I usually read. I'll re-read TLOTR in English some time in the future but as for now, I'll move to a novel into Spanish.

I started reading this book as it has been written by the grandfather of two of my children. The subject matter I was quite unfamiliar with and wasn't sure what to expect. By the end of the book I was quite gripped as not only does this book provide an interesting glimpse into how the railways ran during the Second World War, it is also a rather wonderful tale of the working friendship between an engine driver and a passed fireman. The story belongs to two characters, George and Lance, and although the stories themselves are fictional accounts, it's difficult not to get attached to these two characters. The technical language is broken down adequately enough for a non-railway enthusiast to be able to sustain the flow of the narrative and Michael has included a handy glossary of terms to ensure that readers don't get lost in the processes throughout …

I finished my re-read a day or two ago. I have nothing to add: this is an awesome book that I've always loved. I'm in the process of rereading the Appendices, which are surprisingly good if you want to learn about the history of Middle Earth. Parts of it feel like a condensed version of the Silmarillion, which I've also enjoyed.
