The Fellowship of the Ring

Novel, Fantasy by J. R. R. Tolkien


In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in THE HOBBIT. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

Essential reading.

I tried to enjoy this. I really did. And though there were moments of suspense and wonder intermixed throughout, the vast majority of the book felt like a slog through painfully awkward descriptions. The lore is all there, yet I just can't bring myself to care enough to study it.

Love this book used to read it yearly, cannot recommend enough for a good fantasy novel in a set universe.
