I mentioned in an earlier post that fellow goodreads author J. W. Braun read and reviewed my book, The Lord of the Hallows. This is my review of his book:
The Lord of the Films by J. W. Braun is a fun, fact-filled guidebook to the wonderful Lord of the Rings films by Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson. Braun’s book also includes discussion of the Rankin/Bass animated versions of The Hobbit and The Return of the King as well as the Ralph Bakshi Lord of the Rings film.
The book is filled with behind-the-scenes information, details of the award-winning film trilogy that you may not have noticed, bloopers, and comparisons with the original source material for the films–the novel that is Tolkien’s beloved masterpiece.
The Lord of the Films is a book that devoted fans of the Peter Jackson trilogy will certainly enjoy. It’s an entertaining read that you may want to examine carefully before re-watching the saga on DVD. It includes interviews, trivia, puzzles, rare cast photographs, and information on how to find the DVD “Easter Eggs” which are hidden on the extended edition DVD versions of the films.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Lord of the Films, and I intend to refer to it next time I watch The Lord of the Rings on DVD. If you are interested in this book and J. W. Braun’s other projects, please visit his website at http://jwbraun.com. In addition to being a Tolkien fan, he loves Star Trek and Harry Potter!
