Have you ever read The Lord of The Rings ?
Peter Jackson did a great job with the movies  but nothing compared to what my imagination saw reading those books!
Right now on Amazon you can grab J.R.R. Tolkien 4-Book Boxed Set: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings (Movie Tie-in): The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King  for $12.25 (reg $35.96- which is insane).
Now in reading the reviews you will see the hard core Tolkien fans had problems with the maps and things but if you are just a casual reader like myself these would be a perfect set to add to your collection.
As always be sure to double check the price before you buy- Amazon prices change quickly!
