Lord of the Rings (Novels)
All the novels in the series were written by J.R Tolkin (a famous fantasy writer). It is among the best-selling novels ever found, with above 150 million copies sold. The title of the book relates to the main villain of the story, the Dark Lord Sauron. He has created the One Ring for ruling the other Rings of Power as the final lethal item in his campaign to rule and conquer all of the Middle-earth.
The initial intention of Tolkien’s work was one volume of a two-volume set, the second volume being Silmarillion. This idea of his was dismissed by his publisher and for some economic reasons, the book was published in three volumes over the years from 1954 to 1955.
If you look at the structure of the novels,
- They are divided into six books internally,
- Two books per novel.
There are several add-ons of background material included at the end of the third volume. Some editions have the entire work combined into a single volume. Since the initial release,
- Lord of the Rings has been reprinted many times
- Translated into several languages.
