Lord of the Rings is a masterpiece. It was originally intended to be all one book, but it was divided into three books, and each separate book is divided into two books (confused yet?). The story actually begins in "The Hobbit," where Bilbo Baggins discovers the One Ring in Gollum's lair (which, at the time, was in a cavern within the Misty Mountains). Then in "The Fellowship of the Ring," Bilbo grants the ring to his nephew, Frodo, and then departs to start a new and relaxed life (but they soon meet up in Rivendell). Gandalf teaches Frodo that the One Ring was forged in the fires of Mount Doom for the Dark Lord, Sauron. Three rings were given to the Elves, seven to the dwarves, and nine to the men, but it was the One Ring that could mean peril to all that is good in Middle Earth if it was brought back into the hands of the Dark Lord. Frodo had to return it to the one place it could be destroyed, Mount Doom, in the heart of Mordor. Frodo originally sets off with Pippin, Sam, and Merry. They find themselves in Rivendell, where the council of Elrond takes part. Elrond adds Boromir, Aragorn, Legolas, Gandalf, and Gimli to Frodo's party, and they become the Fellowship. To read of their perilous adventures through Middle Earth is to take an adventure through the ancient trees of Lorien, to journey through the dank darkness of Moria, and to wade in the waters of the sacred Nimrodel. If you're into fantasy, then Lord of the Rings is for you.
One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them...
