This omnibus edition of The Lord of the Rings trilogy is an excellent fantasy book. It contains all three books (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King), so the reader can easily read the whole trilogy from start to finish. There are lots of omnibus editions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Some editions are illustrated, but others aren't. All editions are good books, but the best editions contain beautiful illustrations and paintings by Alan Lee. No matter which edition you read or buy, you can be sure that they're all worth reading. The Lord of the Rings has always been one of my favourite fantasy books. It's a timeless classic, which hasn't lost its appeal over the years. The Lord of the Rings has had an enormous effect on the fantasy genre and many fantasy authors owe a lot to it, because it has inspired several authors to write their own fantasy books. I think that every fantasy reader should read this book, because it's the cornerstone of traditional fantasy. Some readers, who are used to modern fantasy, may say that the story is too traditional, but in my opinion the story is very good and fascinating (I've always been fascinated by Tolkien's world and the history of Middle-earth). If you haven't read this book already, you should definitely read it.
