Lord of the Rings

The Fellowship of the Ring is thefirst book of the Lord of the Rings, written by
J.R.R. Tolkien.The Fellowship of the Ring follows the passing of the Ring, or One Ring,
from Bilbo Baggins to his heir and nephew, Frodo.It is then Frodo's job to take the Ring
across the land of Middle Earth to destroy it in the Cracks of Doom, which is located in t
the enemies land.Along his journey, he stops in Rivendell at the great House of Elrond,
and is joined by a fellowship of nine members.The fellowship's members consist of
Frodo, his friends Pippin, Merry, and Sam, the dwarf Gimli, the elf Legolas, the wizard
Gandalf the Grey, the ranger Aragorn, and Boromir.The company then sets out across
the dangerous lands of Middle Earth to destroy the Ring.
Frodo's quest to destroy the One Ring is a very difficult one both mentally and
physically; he knows it must be destroyed, yet at times does not want to fulfill his
mission.Frodo also knows that the Ring holds enormous power to all that wield it, but it
belongs to the Dark Lord Sauron, and if he ever happened to acquire it, his evil shadow
of power would grow to the point that he could never be defeated.In a way it is very
easy to relate to Frodo's difficult dilemma.He has something very great, yet he is forced
to give it up.Besides the fact that he has to give somethingvaluable to him up, he also
has to go on a long and hard journey across foreign lands to accomplish his task.Another
one of Frodo's problems is the fact that he doesn’t even know if he will succeed.It;s
much like someone giving up something that they really want to do, to instead study for
hours for a test that they have know idea as to what the outcome will be.
In my opinion, Fellowship of the Ring is a great book, and is an excellent way to
start and epic story.Middle Earth makes the perfect backdrop
