About the book

image4.5/5.0

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them 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 by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion. When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom. The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.

Crafting an ethos on which the vast majority of modern fantasy world building is the default template. Tolkien’s middle earth and the major series of conflicts described in the hobbit and the lord of the rings trilogy have been a source of eternal inspiration, motivation, and wonder for the majority of my life since Sir Tolkien guided me, as Gandalf did bilbo, to step outside the familiar, dull domains of what I knew as a bored, lonely child with a bleak outlook of the world, and gave me the spark I needed to search for my own fellowships, dragons treasure, and epic adventures.

I can't read this writing style. It's like trying to read a textbook. Doesn't hold my attention.

Kind of split. Overall this is a master piece no doubt so it has to be 10. However book 1 was almost impossible to get through as Tolkien describes every single landmark in way too much detail and book 2 and 3 have a half each (about Frodo) which also will test your patience.

Great fantasy story that is also an allegory on power.

My favorite work of fantasy, and truly my favorite piece of fiction of all time. Tolkien created a rich story full of history and so many lifelike characters. It sucked me in immediately and I love to visit Middle Earth over and over.
