Book: The Fellowship of the Ring

Rating: Five stars

The first book of the well known trilogy Lord of The Rings is called the Fellowship of the Ring, written by J.R.R. Tolkien. This is the sequel to the famous book called The Hobbit. The story is about how it has been 60 years since Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit, had taken the Ring from Gollum. This ring turns out to be the one master ring which the Dark Lord Sauron, who thought once defeated, has come from the ashes once again to take back the ring. The story continues with Bilbo’s cousin Frodo gets possession of the Ring. Frodo then sets out to destroy the one powerful Ring. As his journey continues he gains help from friends who want to help him in destroying the Ring. In the end he joins himself with nine companions, who represent the different races of Middle Earth, who journey out to the land of Mordor to destroy it once and for all. I liked the first book of the trilogy because I like fantasy stories that are centered upon a quest. Another reason I think the book is good because it uses many different races to move the plot on for example: Men, hobbits, Elves and Dwarves. Also his descriptions of the setting and characters set a clear image of the time, place and people. There some small things that were annoying for example the many long songs in it that don’t make sense, but still all that is good in the book makes up for the problems. I would recommend this book for kids who are thirteen and above. People whop like adventure and fantasy. In conclusion of this review I give this book a rating of five stars.
