Here's a post from Use(less)net from Chris Lawson about online rules for the game and expansion:

Just to let people know that I've created the following rule pages for the Lord of the Rings board game (by Reiner Knizia).

For the standard game:-
Lord of the Rings, 2nd Edition Rules
Lord of the Rings, Rules Summary

For the first expansion game:-
Lord of the Rings Expansion, Friends & Foes Rules

The standard game now comes with the 2nd edition rules booklet and a rules summary leaflet (or at least with the newer U.K. Editions and I hope with the U.S. Fantasy Flight Editions). The summary is a nice idea.

I have the Expanded Rule set still up, this acts as a sort of (official) FAQ for the time being, this is just for the basic game as I haven't managed to include the Friends & Foes expansion into it yet. Also present is the Game Flow designer notes which should explain some of the timing issues.

Full 2nd Edition Rules

Rules Summary

Friends & Foes Rules

Expanded Rules (FAQ)

Design Notes (Game Flow)

I just got this game from a friend of my son. Sort of an early birthday present.
Is it the same one? I note it is distributed by the same company.
It sounds complicated. Is it fun in play, or does it get bogged down by loads of rules or repitition? I find RISK somewhat tedious; will I have the same trouble with War of the Ring?
