Yes I have FINALLY completed this review. Its only been sitting for months. I had mentioned to you that while driving I was listening to LotR: The Fellowship of the Ring. I must confess that even though I have been reading fantasy novels for 15 years I have never before finished reading this classic. Though it might be as difficult as crossing all of Middle Earth and climbing Mt. Doom I will have victory over this series, or at least the first book.
Title: The Fellowship of the Ring
Series: The Lord of the Rings; Book 1
Author: J. R. R. Tolkien
ROTS Setting: UU, Medieval, Higher Magic
Synopsis: Enter the world of Middle Earth a land of men, elves, dwarves, orcs, magic creatures and hobbits. In which a young man inherits a magic ring from his uncle which changes his entire life. He must leave hearth and home, is chased by monsters, possessed by evil and challenges the loyalty’s of his friends and companions.
Recommendation: Mixed, if you want to read the most complex and wonderful world ever to be built in a fictional setting this book is for you. If you want a deep, fun, exiting plot? Find something else. Looking for a easy read? Look elsewhere. Want hours of reading and a headache? So yeah mixed. Do not attempt without at least a adult reading level. Although there really isn’t any inappropriate content you could read it to a 10 year old and not have to skip over anything. You might have to wake them up repeatedly though.
