Setting

The Middle Earth, a place of turmoil, a place of peace, a place of violence, and a place of pacifism. Middle Earth is big enough to satisfy all of these qualities. From the Shire to Bree to Rivendell to Mordor, many a race adjourn, but this time... it is for a greater cause.

J.R.R Tolkien

When J.R.R (John Ronald Reuel) Tolkien lived, he wrote many books and did many significant things. A few of the books he published are Beowulf, The Hobbit, and the Lord of The Rings trilogy. He was in the same literary discussion group as C.S Lewis, and they were close friends. After John's death, his son, Christopher, wrote a book about his dads notes and manuscripts.

Final Reflection Questions

The best part of this book was definitely when the hobbits were making their way through the forest and they had to stop for a break, because that is when Old Man Willow comes into play. While they are sleeping, Willow tries to drown Frodo, and takes Merry and Pippin inside the trunks through cracks in the ground. I think the main lesson of this book, and of that part of the book, is perseverance. I think that because of all the seemingly impossible situations that are fixed by them making haste and carrying on.
