Tolkien, J.R.R.

Genre: adventure, fantasy

Series: Lord of the Rings

This is book one of the series.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

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.

i really enjoyed this book because i love fantasy and epic battle scenes! this book is full of surprises and it has Gandalf! you can really see the characters changing, especially the hobbits. i give this book a 7 out of 10 because it is a good book once you sit down and read it, it is hard to stick reading it because of the way it is written. if you read this book you have to read the second and the third! overall great book.
