The fellowship of the ring by:  J. R. R. Tolkien

Forgive me for not blogging for a very long time. I have gone from a small number of blogs to owning about 1 4 blogs now! So I hope you can understand. Anyway, let’s get to it.

Comments:

“Filled with marvels and strange terrors… an extraordinary, distinguished piece of work.”

-New York Herald Tribute

“For anyone who likes the genre to which it belongs, the Heroic quest, I cannot imagine a more wonderful Christmas present… No fiction I have read in the last five years has given me more joy than the Fellowship of the ring”

-W. H. Auden, The new York Times Book Reviews

“Brilliant in its telling as it is broad in its scope… An exciting good book, and far more than Fantasy to us, who have come into possession of the Great Ring of Power, and have turned back one assault of the shadow only to see it, as Gandalf warned, ‘take another shape and grow again.’ “

What’s the book about:

The dark fearsome Ringwraiths are searching fora Hobbit. Frodo Baggins knows that they are seeking him and the ring he bears – the ring of power that will enable evil Sauron to destroy all that is good in Middle-earth. Now it is up to to Frodo and his faithful servant, Sam, with a small band of companions, to carry the ring to the one place it can be destroyed: Mount Doom, in the very center of Sauron’s realm. This begins J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic the Lord of the rings, which continues in The two towers and the return of the king.

What I think of the book:

One day, Since I had been very good at a place, just sitting down and reading Percy Jackson: sea of monsters ( which is a really good book, by the way), my parents said they would buy anything about $15.00 or under. At the time I been wanting to watch the Lord of the rings trilogy, and I’ve also been wanting to read the books too, so I chose a Lord of the rings/the hobbit boxed set. It was over $15.00, like About $18.00, but my parents got it for me anyway for me, because they love me. On the day it came, I finished Percy Jackson book: Sea of Monsters (which, by the way, was a really good book), and walked out dog for the first time (wasn’t a good one). I began with the hobbit, but after a couple of chapters, I got kind of bored, and decided to read the fellowship of the ring. To tell the truth, the Lord of the rings trilogy was what I actually wanted to read. But then I went back to the hobbit, and weeks later, I went back to fellowship of the ring, but then after a couple of Pages, I went back to the hobbit, and then a couple days later, I finished it. Luckily, I also had The Lord of the rings with me as well as The hobbit, so after I finished the Hobbit, I immediately began reading where I left off in the Lord of the rings. I thought it was definitely a bit darker. My favorite characters were Tom Bombadil, Gandalf the grey, and Legolas in this book. There were many differences in Tue book and movie. Most of the the stuff Boromir said in the movie at the council of Elrond were when he went all crazy and tried to take the ring from Frodo in the book. And Boromir doesn’t even die until The two towers. But in my opinion, the book was an excellent read. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Fantasy and adventure.

The Hobbit by: J. R. R. Tolkien

images-61This may seem like did that I finished the hobbit, yet I finished I, robot a couple of days ago, but I have a lot of unfinished books. You see a book, you read it, you see another book, you leave the unfinished book for the other book, and so on. Anyway, the comments.

(I’m sorry, I couldn’t find any comments on my book. If I find some comments for this book, I will comment down below.)

What the books about:

When Thorin Oakenshield and his band of dwarves embark upon a dangerous quest to reclaim the hoard of gold stolen from them by the evil dragon Smaug, Gandalf the wizard suggests an unlikely accomplice: Bilbo Baggins, an unassuming Hobbit dwelling in peaceful Hobbiton.

along the way, the company faces trolls, goblins, giant spiders, and worse. But as they journey from the wonders of Rivendell to the terrors of Mirkwood and beyond, Bilbo will find that there is more to him than anyone–himself included–ever dreamed. Unexpected qualities of courage band cunning, and a love of adventure, propel Bilbo toward his great destiny…  a destiny that waits in the dark caverns beneath the Misty Mountains, where a twisted creature known as Gollum jealousy guards precious magic ring.

What I think about it:

One day, Since I had been very good at a place, just sitting down and reading Percy Jackson: sea of monsters ( which is a really goo book, by the way), my parents said they would buy anything about $15.00 or under. At the time I been wanting to watch the Lord of the rings trilogy, and I’ve also been wanting to read the books too, so I chose a Lord of the rings/the hobbit boxed set. It was over $15.00, like About $18.00, but my parents got it for me anyway for me, because they love me. On the day it came, I finished Percy Jackson book: Sea of Monsters (which, by the way, was a really good book), and walked out dog for the first time (wasn’t a good one). I began with the hobbit, but after a couple of chapters, I got kind of bored, and decided to read the fellowship of the ring. To tell the truth, the Lord of the rings trilogy was what I actually wanted to read. But then I went back to the hobbit, and weeks later, I went back to fellowship of the ring, but then after a couple of Pages, I went back to the hobbit, and then I finished it. I thought it was one of the best fantasy books I’ve ever read, and I read a lot of fantasy books. I liked how J. R. R. Tolkien have The Dwarves very cheerful personalities, but can also be very angry, greedy, and stern. I found it interesting how Tolkien made Smaug the Dragon so cunning, yet so malicious. Malicious means evil and mean, right? I don’t have my dictionary with me right now. And on my birthday I had an idea: C. S. Lewis and Tolkien were friends, and Lewis based his stories on the bible. Did J. R. R. Tolkien do the same thing, or did he just write a story to entertain, and not teach us a lesson from the bible? If he did, I don’t understand books #1 or 2, but sometimes I feel like book #3 is based on revelation. You know, if you destroy the ring, evil will be no more in middle-earth–when Satan is defeated, evil will be no more. You get the Idea, right? Well, thank you for reading my post, please feel free to like it, comment, maybe even follow my website. Good bye.
