The Lord of the Rings, Singapore edition

In anticipation of tonight’s concert presentation of The Fellowship of the Ring by the Metropolitan Festival Orchestra, I present to you The Lord of the Rings, the Singapore edition:

Sensitively translated into Singaporean English, Kym Ng heroically re-creates J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantastical world of Middle Earth for Sec 4 literature students and twittering tweens.

Acclaim for LOTR – Singapore edition:

“An amazing feat… Ng is not just a remarkable Tolkien scholar – she is a keen local storyteller and folklorist.” — B.B. Chee, 65

“This one got ten year series or not?” — Chao Ma Ge, 16
