To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Title says it all. I bought the three books at the same time and all of them have teared up jacket. Packaging was done quite poorly. There's also misprint in the books and spots of red ink in a lot of pages. Bad service from Amazon, bad product overall.
Bought this from the Vanderbilt book reseller. Product took a while to arrive since I live out of the USA but it came in near-perfect condition. Staff answered my email regarding duties promptly and in a friendly manner. Flipped through it and saw no pen/pencil/highter/coffee markings at all.
The book itself has a nice weight to it and I enjoy the slightly larger print. Illustrations are gorgeous. I'm not a huge fan of the LOTR series but I quite enjoyed reading the first two series with these illustrations.
