I was told to read 'The Hobbit', then'Lord Of The Rings' so I'd have a better idea, or backstory, of the characters and the places in both of those stories. This story was better than I expected, partly because it explained so many of the things I'd seen in the 'Lord of the Rings' movies. On the other hand, it's a great action/adventure tale(one of the best I've read) that can stand on its' own. It's definetely worth the money, and will be a nice addition to anyone's library.
