The Lord of the Rings
The Fellowship of the Ring
Written By J. R. R. Tolkein
The Summary of Tolkein's Novel
The story began with the great wizard, Gandalf the Grey, visiting Hobbiton for his old friend Bilbo Baggin's 111th birthday. It is at that point when Gandalf realizes that Bilbo has the one ring that was forged in the land of Mordor, which is of course, in Middle-Earth. So, he decided that something must be done or evil from Mordor would get to the ring and bring the evil to everyone in Middle-Earth. He prepared Frodo for this great adventure that would help to bring the one ring close to its demise. Frodo, along with Samwise Gamgee, Merry, and Pippin head towards their first destination hoping to meet back with Gandalf the Grey. Instead of running into Gandalf, they get stuck in a great and constant adventure where they run into humans, elves, and even dwarves to help them to the land of Mordor. In addition to meeting up with nine companions in Rivendell, they had to make several hard decisions in their adventure. They also found themselves in the midst of battle with enemies similar to orcs and goblins. Some of them perished due to their decisions, but they couldn't forget about their longing pursuit to destroy the ring at Mount Doom in Mordor. Hobbits may be the smallest creatures in Middle-Earth, but they are also the bravest.
My Opinion of the Book
I thought that the book, The Return of the King, was a very fascinating title. This book really inspired me into believing that a person can do anything if they spend their time wisely making the right decisions. This story brightens the readers mind with the underlying message that even the smallest of things can make the biggest differences in the world. To top that off, it is a story of awesomeness. The mystical creatures and tales that it bestows upon the reader are very unique and captivating. Throughout the story, it was almost impossible to set it down because there was always something to think about. I highly suggest this to anyone who wants to read an amazing story.
My Favorite Paragraph - Near the end of Chapter II - Book II

The Mines of Moria
The Mines of Moria was once a Dwarf Mine and Dwarf Kingdom that was very powerful. It was also very rich.
The Shire is home of the hobbits in Middle-Earth. The Lord of the Rings is especially centered around the town of Hobbiton in the Shire.
Rivendell is home to elves in Middle-Earth. Many important meetings between the elves and different creatures over vital matters have occurred here.
