    *slobbers all over the book* MY PRECIOUS!!! MINE!!! Read it if you love the books and the movies! ...

    I am an avid lover of The Lord Of The Rings and really enjoyed reading all these behind the scenes interviews about making the trilogy. This only took me so long to read because the size of the book made it impossible to carry with me anywhere and so other novels took precedent. Ho...

    Insightful and informative, but nothing to write home about. Most of the pictures and stories in here can be found in the documentaries on the extended editions of the movies, so I felt I might as well just watch those. And frankly the writing was rather choppy and half-hazard. He s...

    ?The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy?. Brian Sibly I much enjoyed watching the three LOTR films as they were released to the cinema in turn (2002, 2002, 2003). I didn?t chance across Mr Sibly?s ?Collectors? Edition? book until now (2016). I struggled...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy is like a wonderfully large colorful journal of what it was like working on the set of this magnificent trilogy for those many, many months. With a foreword by Ian McKellen, a.k.a. Gandalf, author Brian Sibley does an excellent job...

    This is a brilliant companion guide to have if you are a fan of Lord ofthe Rings as it includes some inside secrets and describes how they did some of the effects and their first premiere. This book does have a lot of reading in it and if you are looking for a guide that is like Harry ...

    Good overview of the making of the trilogy. Sibley is the man behind the BBC radio version of LOTR, so it was quite nice to read this. ...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy by Brian Sibley (2002) ...

    Brian Sibley's book contains loads of behind-the-scenes information, anecdotes and pictures. Rather than concentrating on minute technical details, Sibley writes in a more conversational tone, bringing the stories of the women and men involved in the unique production challenges of Lor...

    Overall, this book could have used more pictures and fewer anecdotes about the staff. Far more captivating than this book are the behind-the-scenes documentaries included in the films' DVDs. I admit I didn't read the book very closely because much of it wasn't very interesting. ...

    loved it ...

    Explains about the movie clearly! ...

    I fell in love with the Lord of the Rings movies at the ripe old age of 11. It wasn't typical for a middle schooler to sing elvish on the bus to school, but lo and behold that never stopped me. This book was a Bible to me. I read it over and over again until the spine gave way and then...

    A book which provides a lot of background information for the making of the Lord Of The Rings, mostly the work done by the WETA workshop. It's wonderful to read about all this background work, it just drives home what a big undertaking the making of these movies actually was.. especial...

    A nice insight into the making of the Lord of the Rings. Quite an interesting read. I enjoyed it, but I have a couple of criticisms but they're pretty small. It would have been nice to hear a little more from the actors but I understand why there weren't really featured - the main emph...

    Mr, Sibley brings his considerable lore master skills as a writer to this nice coffee table book about the making of the Peter Jackson lotr films. its amazing. also loaded with great pictures. The author has been a fan of middle earth since the early days of the book and is an uberfan ...

    A brilliant and detailed biography of the LOTR films themselves; following the author through the various sets and workshops behind the scenes becomes a wholly immersive trip into the making of Middle-Earth itself. Perfect read for fans who like reading about the ins and outs of creati...

    I got this book as a Christmas gift from a psycho ex-girlfriend. Anyway, this was a really well done book that gives a good behind the scenes look at the making of the Lord of The Rings movies. ...

    Lovely little "biography" of the Lord of the Rings films, although a little top-heavy (the second and third films hadn't yet been released at the book's completion). It's full of lovely photographs and funny and interesting interviews with the cast and crew (mainly the crew). Chock-ful...

    no doubt it is a magnificent book to read specially for those who are interesting in fantasy books and movies .... i don't have a library near to where i'm living now so i want a soft copy...if any... ...

    Read this awhile ago, so I don't remember too much about it ... which is why I can't give it the 4 stars ("I really liked it") rating. It's a good book to borrow from the library if you like "Lord of the Rings." ...

    Lots of behind-the-scenes information on the making of the movies. However, a lot of it focused on the work at Weta, which has been covered by many of the other movie tie-in books. It would have been interesting to read more about the filming process. ...

    This was quite an interesting book, which went into a fair amount of detail about the making of the LOTR trilogy. I always find things like this interesting anyway, so I appreciated the insight. I did think there was an overabundance of exclamation marks throughout the book, though. ...

    Good book! Full review coming soon on my blog. :) ...

    Fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the making of the incredible movies. The only thing lacking was more pictures! ...

    Lovely little "biography" of the Lord of the Rings films, although a little top-heavy (the second and third films hadn't yet been released at the book's completion). It's full of lovely photographs and funny and interesting interviews with the cast and crew (mainly the crew). Chock-ful...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy is like a wonderfully large colorful journal of what it was like working on the set of this magnificent trilogy for those many, many months. With a foreword by Ian McKellen, a.k.a. Gandalf, author Brian Sibley does an excellent job...

    I fell in love with the Lord of the Rings movies at the ripe old age of 11. It wasn't typical for a middle schooler to sing elvish on the bus to school, but lo and behold that never stopped me. This book was a Bible to me. I read it over and over again until the spine gave way and then...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy is like a wonderfully large colorful journal of what it was like working on the set of this magnificent trilogy for those many, many months. With a foreword by Ian McKellen, a.k.a. Gandalf, author Brian Sibley does an excellent job...

    Overall, this book could have used more pictures and fewer anecdotes about the staff. Far more captivating than this book are the behind-the-scenes documentaries included in the films' DVDs. I admit I didn't read the book very closely because much of it wasn't very interesting. ...

    Good overview of the making of the trilogy. Sibley is the man behind the BBC radio version of LOTR, so it was quite nice to read this. ...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy by Brian Sibley (2002) ...

    Brian Sibley's book contains loads of behind-the-scenes information, anecdotes and pictures. Rather than concentrating on minute technical details, Sibley writes in a more conversational tone, bringing the stories of the women and men involved in the unique production challenges of Lor...

    Overall, this book could have used more pictures and fewer anecdotes about the staff. Far more captivating than this book are the behind-the-scenes documentaries included in the films' DVDs. I admit I didn't read the book very closely because much of it wasn't very interesting. ...

    loved it ...

    Explains about the movie clearly! ...

    I fell in love with the Lord of the Rings movies at the ripe old age of 11. It wasn't typical for a middle schooler to sing elvish on the bus to school, but lo and behold that never stopped me. This book was a Bible to me. I read it over and over again until the spine gave way and then...

    A book which provides a lot of background information for the making of the Lord Of The Rings, mostly the work done by the WETA workshop. It's wonderful to read about all this background work, it just drives home what a big undertaking the making of these movies actually was.. especial...

    A nice insight into the making of the Lord of the Rings. Quite an interesting read. I enjoyed it, but I have a couple of criticisms but they're pretty small. It would have been nice to hear a little more from the actors but I understand why there weren't really featured - the main emph...

    Mr, Sibley brings his considerable lore master skills as a writer to this nice coffee table book about the making of the Peter Jackson lotr films. its amazing. also loaded with great pictures. The author has been a fan of middle earth since the early days of the book and is an uberfan ...

    A brilliant and detailed biography of the LOTR films themselves; following the author through the various sets and workshops behind the scenes becomes a wholly immersive trip into the making of Middle-Earth itself. Perfect read for fans who like reading about the ins and outs of creati...

    I got this book as a Christmas gift from a psycho ex-girlfriend. Anyway, this was a really well done book that gives a good behind the scenes look at the making of the Lord of The Rings movies. ...

    Lovely little "biography" of the Lord of the Rings films, although a little top-heavy (the second and third films hadn't yet been released at the book's completion). It's full of lovely photographs and funny and interesting interviews with the cast and crew (mainly the crew). Chock-ful...

    no doubt it is a magnificent book to read specially for those who are interesting in fantasy books and movies .... i don't have a library near to where i'm living now so i want a soft copy...if any... ...

    Read this awhile ago, so I don't remember too much about it ... which is why I can't give it the 4 stars ("I really liked it") rating. It's a good book to borrow from the library if you like "Lord of the Rings." ...

    Lots of behind-the-scenes information on the making of the movies. However, a lot of it focused on the work at Weta, which has been covered by many of the other movie tie-in books. It would have been interesting to read more about the filming process. ...

    This was quite an interesting book, which went into a fair amount of detail about the making of the LOTR trilogy. I always find things like this interesting anyway, so I appreciated the insight. I did think there was an overabundance of exclamation marks throughout the book, though. ...

    *slobbers all over the book* MY PRECIOUS!!! MINE!!! Read it if you love the books and the movies! ...

    I am an avid lover of The Lord Of The Rings and really enjoyed reading all these behind the scenes interviews about making the trilogy. This only took me so long to read because the size of the book made it impossible to carry with me anywhere and so other novels took precedent. Ho...

    Insightful and informative, but nothing to write home about. Most of the pictures and stories in here can be found in the documentaries on the extended editions of the movies, so I felt I might as well just watch those. And frankly the writing was rather choppy and half-hazard. He s...

    ?The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy?. Brian Sibly I much enjoyed watching the three LOTR films as they were released to the cinema in turn (2002, 2002, 2003). I didn?t chance across Mr Sibly?s ?Collectors? Edition? book until now (2016). I struggled...
