The Lord Of The Rings - J.R.R Tolkien

The Lord Of The Rings is one of the most popular fantasy series that was ever written. The series includes three books: "The Fellowship Of The Ring", "The Two Towers" and "The Return Of The King".

The story rolls before us the journey of Frodo, a hobbit, in order to defeat the Dark Lord Sauron. In "The Fellowship Of The Ring" the Ring is inherited to Frodo from his cousin Bilbo (the actions that lead to the Ring's finding are told in another of Tolkien's books: "The Hobbit"). After a while Gandalf, the wizard, explains to Frodo the Ring's importance. He and Frodo agree that it must be destroyed.

Three more hobbits joined the journey: Sam- Frodo's servant and friend, and two

cousins: Merry and Pippin. The way to Mordor, the land of dark, is usually very dangerous. But at the time Frodo and his friends went on the journey, the danger is even bigger than normally. The Dark Lord Sauron rises from the ashes, and he will do everything to get his ring back. The Black Riders are walking on the Middle-earth again and Sauron sends them after Frodo.

The hobbits faced many adventures before they arrived to Rivendell, a land of elves, ruled by Elrond. They recover there, and then keep on the journey with a larger group: The Fellowship Of The Ring.

The group includes nine members: Frodo, Merry, Pippin, Gandalf, a Ranger named Eragorn, Gimli the dwarf, Legolas the elf and Boromir, a man, son of the Ruling Steward of the Land of Gonder. After the fellowship arrives to Amon Hen, they divided: Frodo and Sem walks to Mordor, Boromir was killed by orcs, Merry and Pippin were captured, and Gimli, Eragorn and Legolas try to rescue them.

The rest of the series (and it is a very long rest...) you will have to discover by yourselves.

Have a fun reading!
