The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3) (2005)
5 star

The Fellowship of the Ring is the first of three volumes of the epic novel …

The single greatest (and probably one of the only greatest) fantasy novels ever written.

5 star

Wonderful world-building and beautifully crafted and wondrous settings, but unlike The Silmarillion (1977) it actually has an engaging, overarching story that keeps you engaged and gives you a reason why to travel through this world.
