Sorry devoted readers! Apparently when they get to Bree it gets interesting. I love the artistic description, also the poems, but the only interesting part was very scarce. I love books like these but when most of it is description than…

The novel is set in a dark fantasy world where the Dark Lord, Sauron, attempts to reclaim the One Ring that he lost in order to enslave all of Earth. Bilbo Baggins, from The Hobbit, is advised by Gandalf that the ring he holds could be the…

Long ago, Eleven smiths had created the Rings of Power; the most powerful ring out of all was the One Ring. The dark lord, Sauron stole and possessed the One Ring with his powers. The One Ring was able to possess the wearer under Sauron.…

Not a good book. I was surprised because the movies were so good, however I just found this book to be awfully boring as it dragged on for a while. I would recommend the movies, but not the book.

Despite being written nearly 7 decades ago, the first book in the famous Lord of the Rings trilogy still remains just as powerful and its impact on the fantasy genre remains unrivaled. In the ancient land of Middle-Earth, Tolkien…

I couldn't get past this being the most boring travel log ever--sorry devoted fans.

Where to even begin with this? Tolkien might be my favourite author of all time. Few books have made me so emotional, even after reading them several times each beat is no less powerful for it. The whole world has a quality of scale and…

Part One of THE LORD OF THE RINGS, this story follows Frodo Baggins and his companions on an adventure as big as Middle Earth - that's the land this fantasy takes place in - itself. Frodo is in possession of a ring that in the wrong hands…

As a lifelong fan of the movies, I came into the Lord of the Rings' book series with high expectations, and boy did it deliver. It's certainly different from the movies (especially different from the controversial, action-filled,…

The Fellowship of the Ring is a good book, but long, kind of boring, and only for the devoted reader.

For me, Fellowship of the Rings gets better with time. Your mileage will vary with this, and it will likely change depending upon what you bring to the book and where you are in your life; but it's that sort of book, too. It obviously does…

A fantastic start to Tolkien's epic. There are several scenes to readers may notice were not included in Peter Jackson's movies.

I thought I would like it. Boy was I wrong. As a lover of the films and The Hobbit (the novel), I prepared myself to finally delve into the brilliant and deep Lord of the Rings trilogy, almost buying the complete set because I was SURE I…

I just realized that though I've become such a Middle-earth nerd that I've read the History of Middle Earth, I have never reviewed the books that began my Middle-earth obsession. Well, no more! The Fellowship of the Ring is a wonderful…

I really loved this book. It was really well written, and definitely worth being made into the movie trilogy. Since its a book that was written quite a while ago, the language is slightly difficult to understand, and it's made an even…

I first read this when I was in middle school, and it has only gotten better now that I am an adult. The magic that Tolkien brought to us via the characters and tales of Middle Earth isn’t lost with my growing up. In fact, I can now see…

Describing this book is quite simply impossible. The story itself was written as six novels, with depth given to even the trees and shrubs so that the reader could really imagine what Tolkien himself was. I highly recommend this book. It…

Just finished my second reading of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first of this epic trilogy. I dream of living in a place like Lothlorien. I told my kids that if I ever named my house I would call it Lothlorien. My daughter thought…

This is the book I would want on a desert island. I first read this at age 11 and it had a profound impact on me. The writing, the sense of wonder and loss that permeates every page, the vividness of the landscape are all brilliant. Every…

A classic of Fantasy Fiction and a must read for all who have seen the Peter Jackson film adaptation. The book tells a gripping story and while it does have some sections that could have been omitted, the entirety of the book speaks to the…

I read quite a bit of speculative and creative fiction: that is, fiction that takes place in worlds that look like our own, but are markedly different in terms of events, characters, and places. Tolkien’s invented world of Middle-earth is…
