In this pocket-sized guide, editors at pop-culture publisher Smart Pop (Smart Answers to Questions That Pop Up!) compile info on Jackson’s six Tolkien films (plus deleted scenes), from the basic (In what order should the films be watched? Where is Middle Earth?) to the arcane (Gandalf’s best entrances and exits? How good is an orc’s sense of smell?). Geekily irreverent, funny, and detailed, this unauthorized guide is best for browsing, although there’s an index.
VERDICT Sure to entertain and enlighten The Hobbit and LOTR fans and settle arguments on details large and small.
