Transcript of Andres The Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Rings By John Ronald Reuel Tolkien The Author Summary When a young hobbit named Frodo leaves his comfortable hobbit-hole, he and eight companions must complete an immense task: destroy the Ring of power. The Ring, made by the Dark Lord Sauron in the fires of Mount Doom, could control the rings of power.

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."
-The Lord of the Rings

The ring must be destroyed, or Sauron will have Middle-Earth in his grasp. To be destroyed, it has to be cast into the place it was made: Mount Doom. A Brief What is a Hobbit? A hobbit (also known as a halfling) is like a human, with the difference of feet so hairy that they don't need to wear shoes, and, despite their size, a huge appetite. A full-grown hobbit is only about the height of a ten-year old. Until Frodo sets out from his home, hobbits were very much misunderstood.

When you hear about hobbits living in hobbit-holes, you may think about a dark, dirty, hole in the ground. Well, a hobbit-hole is nearly the opposite of that. They are, in fact very comfortable, like a house in the ground. They have wooden walls, lamps, beds, chairs, everything you need to be comfortable. The Fellowship of the Ring On his quest to destroy the ring, Frodo meets many people, Elves, and Dwarves that help defend against the dark armies. His most important companions are Gimli the dwarf, Legolas the elf, Merry, Pippin, and Sam (Samwise) the hobbits, the wizard Gandalf the Grey, and two men, Aragorn and Boromir. Together with Frodo, they are the Fellowship of the ring. They were made the fellowship at Rivendell, an elf settlement. After the fellowship breaks, all of middle-earth depends on two hobbits, Frodo and Sam. Information on the Book Genre: Fantasy/adventure

Started getting published: 1954 What Are Elves? Again, Elves are like humans, with a few differences. They live much longer, (probably more than 500 years) have a sharper eyesight, as a result being able to see farther, and they are taller. Besides this, Elves are not very different than people. The forest of Lothlorien,
one of the many elf settlements. "'They are a remarkable race,' said the Warden, nodding his head. 'Very tough in fibre, I deem.'"
-The Lord of the Rings "...Legolas was fair of face beyond the
measure of Men, and he sang
an elven-song in a clear voice
as he walked in the morning..." What are Dwarves? Dwarves are very much like hobbits, with distinctive features that hobbits don't have. For instance, they don't have hairy feet and have beards, while hobbits don't. Dwarves are also amazing builders and miners, and can withstand many places deep underground. Elves and Dwarves have a bad history together, and until Gimli and Legolas are friends the two races hated each other. "Gimli stalked beside him, stroking his beard and staring about him. 'There is some good stone-work here,' he said as he looked at the walls; 'but also some that is less good, and the streets could be better contrived. When Aragorn comes into his own, I shall offer him the service of the stonewrights of the Mountain, and we will make this a town to be proud of.'"
-The Lord of the Rings The gate of the Mines of Moria, a famous dwarf mine My Opinion "There the white Snowbourn, joined by the lesser stream, went rushing, fuming on the stones, down to Edoras and the green hills and the plains. Away to the right at the head of the great dale the mighty Starkhorn loomed up above its vast buttresses swathed in cloud; but its jagged peak, clothed in everlasting snow, gleamed far above the world, blue-shadowed upon the East, red-stained by the sunset in the West." If you liked this description, you are sure to like the Lord of the Rings. It is a book with many curtains of boring parts, but if you read past those veils, you'll find
a thrilling adventure that will instantly whisk you away to middle earth and all of the exiting and dangerous places the fellowship goes to. It can be a challenging book, and it can be hard to start each part (book), but it is very rewarding. It is also a good book for fans of C.S. Lewis' works, as Tolkien was friends with C.S. Lewis. It's not hard to believe, since they both wrote books with the same genre. I recommend you read The Hobbit before you read The Lord of the Rings, as it explains quite a bit of information you'll need to know when reading The Lord of the Rings. As you'll see later, there is also a book before both books, The Silmarillion, which shows the battles long before the Ring is found by Bilbo in The Hobbit. It is not necessary to read The Silmarillion, because it is a book much more difficult than The Lord of the Rings, but you would know more about the whole thing than if you didn't read it. The Lord of the Rings is a captivating novel that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat until you are finished. You will also find a very unexpected surprise at the end.
I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. "'The Company of the Ring shall be Nine; and the Nine Walkers shall be set against the Nine Riders that are evil.'"
