Publisher Comments:

Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power except one — the One Ring that rules them all — which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task when Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

Review:

"Here are beauties which pierce like swords or burn like cold iron." C. S. Lewis

Review:

"Exciting...Tolkien's invention is unflagging." W. H. Auden

Synopsis:

Elves, dwarves, hobbits, and men are caught in the spell of an evilring that corrupts, in this classic Tolkien bestseller. Maps.

Synopsis:

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in THE HOBBIT. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

C.S Lewis said: "Here [are] beauties which pierce like swords or burn like cold iron. Here is a book which will break your heart." He was right. 'The fellowship of the ring' is one of the most beautifully crafted books in our world. It is filled to the brim with ancient language that is beautiful, noble, and wonderful. Tolkien created his own language. His story is everything good in the world. The good people in his novel are noble, and would not hesitate to lend a hand to even the most evil. He writes a story which is uplifting. The story has everything, love, hate, travels, battles, death, life, (torture, revenge, true love... just kidding:) ) It is a novel of the ages, and a book like it will not be seen for a long time.

although, i must warn you, it is hard reading, and if you don't like big books filled with hard words, you should probably find something else.
