Setting

The setting of the Lord of the Rings is very important to the story because the story is about trying to save Middle- Earth, the setting. If the setting were to be different their wouldn't be a story. Many things make the setting interesting, like the fact that you have a bunch of lands put together to fight and stop the darkness like WWII a bunch of lands fighting to try to stop the Nazis.

My Reaction

This is a great book for people who love a great adventure. It has a amazing plot with many conflicts that make the book better than it is. It also made me want to go out on my own adventure, I even got a replica sword from the movies. If you are a fan of the Hobbit then this will be a great book meeting up to the high expectations that the

Hobbit set.
