Does it bother anyone that Amazon no longer lists the names of the three individual books?

Has anyone read both this series and ASOIAF (Game of Thrones)? Is this in the similar writing or is it less wordy/more wordy? Basically I read the first two books by George R. R. Martin and didn't continue because he would go on and on about what people were wearing and what they were eating etc. Is this similar?

It's always been one book. It's just normally split into 3 volumes because physically, it's huge otherwise.

If you don't like the descriptive nature of ASOIAF, I don't believe you'll enjoy this. Tolkien tells an amazing story, but he's pretty wordy/descriptive in getting there.

You should read the Hobbit first! It's much more manageable and will give you an idea if you want to follow through with the trilogy.

just joking, but since the book was written a long time ago some of the words used aren't in our current day use. for example anytime something is strange they call it queer in the book.
You can't make jokes, it's 2019!!! Maybe next year 😢

Shouldn't this be free given how long ago it was published? Are you just paying for formatting?
Right, all classic literature should be free just because it's old. Also, why bother with this book anyway when there are movies? /s

ASOIAF and LOTR are not similar. I love LOTR but could not get through the second book of ASOIAF. I disagree that LOTR is wordy; although it is long, Tolkien wastes no words. In contrast, ASOIAF is flabby prose and thematically thin. LOTR also has a brilliant denouement while my understanding is that George R.R. Martin hasn't even ended his yarn while he turned to TV. There is no comparison between these two works.

YMMV.

It is a valid question because after a certain period, based on I assume regional laws, some texts enter public domain and are free for republication by other parties -- which essentially makes it free. I don't believe that is the case with LOTR but regardless, the original commenter had a valid question...
