I love this book! It gives a good sense of the feel of the making of the Lord of the Rings movies, with both the detail throughout the book and the introductory essays by Peter Jackson, Richard Taylor, Alan Lee, and Barry Osborne. It is a handy reference guide whenever at home wondering about exact locations of scenes, or travelling to them.

In fact, given that the places are usually very beautiful parts of the country, this book also serves as a useful general holiday guide for touring New Zealand. Ian Brodie has in fact added many more general travel notes and details about nearby points of interest and other things to see and do while in different places.

The pictures are nice, but small. However, this is because the book is a handy notebook size, which would be great for travelling with and checking those location-finding details.

I love this book. And now I want to go to so many of these new places!

Having played my small part in the epic saga, as anonymous as only the majority of a cast can be, this book drew my attention and impressed me with it's intimate accuracy. Accuracy only someone totally involved in the process can portray, coupled with GPS for the technically inclined.

Full of rich detail, images, comparitive scenes from the movies and maps, simply overflowing with information about the surrounding areas, giving the reader a sense of the culture they will encounter on their travels through Middle Earth New Zealand.
