The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
By J.R.R. Tolkien
Hi! I really loved this book! Although I did feel like it was too tedious. Tedious means really descriptive. If you like large, descriptive sentences, great! This book is just for you! But if you like sentences that just say the main thing with one or two details, then you might like this book, but it might be a struggle at first for you to read.
My favorite character was stubborn, loyal Sam. Even when Frodo was going through the deepest of troubles, he stuck by his side. He called Frodo his master. Another one of my favorite characters was Frodo. His adoptive father, Bilbo, had gone on an exciting journey with a ring of power that makes you invisible. (You can read my review of that book here.) But now Frodo seeks a quest to destroy the ring of power, for the most evil, powerful one in the world is seeking it. And he may rise again if he gets it!
This is an exciting tale. It tells the brave adventure of an unlikely company from dwarves, wizards, men, rangers and hobbits. The bravest and the most compassionate were sent on this journey.
What will happen on Frodo’s adventure? Will he succeed in getting this ring somewhere out of the shire where he has lived for a long time? Or will his first part of the big quest fail and he end up right back where he started? As I always say, read the book to find out!
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor – zero being not scary at all and five being majorly scary): 3
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor – zero having no yucky-lovey parts in it and five having major yucky-lovey parts): 1
I give this book 4 wands.
This is an amazing journey where an ordinary hobbit and his friends go on the biggest journey of their lifetime.
