Tolkien's Middle Earth has become a never-ending story for me.
I casually read the one-volume paperback over the course of 3
to 4 months, then I start the adventure all over again. Each
visit to the Shire and Gondor brings with it a unexpected
surprise as I discover yet another subtle nuanced missed
during my previous read.
If you've only seen the classic VHS animated version of Lord
of the Rings (or worse, only the muddled VHS Return of the
King) you have no idea what you're missing. Likewise, if you
have only read the oft described "charming" Hobbit, then a
whole new world lays in wait for you.
I invite you to make this classic a part of you life as it has
become a part of mine. Then, if you think you've seen all the
sites of LOTR's Middle Earth, get a copy of The Silmarillion
and delve deeper into Tolkien's lush realm.
"He stepped down and vanished."(Tolkien, 52). ET2 Table lamps,
Now how in the world is that possible? And who vanished? The
Lord of the Rings, part one, The Fellowship of the Ring, by
J.R.R. Tolkien, will tell you. This story is full of detail
and adventure. I highly recommend this book. Since J.R.R.
Tolkien is so descriptive, whoever reads any of these stories
can picture exactly what the scene looks like. He described
the forest that the adventurers went through wonderfully. All
throughout the story, "black riders" were following the main
characters. These riders were trying to catch the main
character, Frodo. I could see the whole scene. This ET2 story
could have been a lot shorter if so much detail wasn't in the
story. I'm not saying the detail is bad, but since so much
detail was described, at times I did get bored while reading
the book. Throughout the first part of the story, the
travelers were going through the woods. Most of the beginning
was description, but a little adventure thrown in to keep the
reader reading. For example, when they were in the woods, they
became tired and fell asleep under a willow tree.
