The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. Tolkien

This has been a long time coming. I have been holding off reading this trilogy for years! I don't know what it was that kept preventing me from picking up these books. I guess Life just kept getting in the way. But! I have now read The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring and I couldn't be happier. These books have been a lot of fun to read and just as amazing as I thought they would be.

 

Now, it's been a while since I've written a book review so I'm a little rusty and this book has been around for a while and I'm just getting around to reading them, but I will do my best to talk about them nonetheless!

 

This book starts off with Frodo and tells of his tale throughout the lands of Middle-Earth. It's another adventure story, just as in The Hobbit, however it's a much darker tale. Frodo must go with his Company to destroy the Ring of Power in order to bring Sauron's rule to an end. Constantly throughout the whole story, the threat of danger lurks near and the loss of allies is around every corner. I love how dark it got. I love seeing each of the characters grow into their own. It's amazing.

 

I loved seeing Frodo and Sam's relationship. How much they cared and looked out for each other. I loved finally meeting Aragorn and how wise of a traveler he was. Gandalf is still all-knowing and powerful. I love seeing Galadriel in all her splendor. She truly impressed me as a character. Her power is incredible! Finally getting to see all these characters be as whimsical and magical as they are was something I've been looking forward to for years. It's been a while since I've read an epic fantasy as entertaining as this one and it felt great going back to the genre.

 

I don't really have much more to say at this point. This story is a classic for a reason. It's amazing and wonderful and a lot of fun to read. The same things I said about The Hobbit still applies here. There's not much diversity between the characters. However, there are more female characters in this book than in the previous so that's an improvement! (Galadriel is absolutely stunning!) Still, even if these books have some issues, they are worth the read. If you love fantasy and you haven't read these books yet, please give them a try. They are wonderful!

"No, indeed," said Elrond, turning towards him with a smile. "You at least shall go with him. It is hardly possible to separate you from him, even when he is summoned to a secret council and you are not."

Sam sat down, blushing and muttering. "A nice pickle we've landed ourselves in, Mr. Frodo," he said, shaking his head.

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf. "And so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
