The Fellowship of the Ring

I finished reading The Fellowship of The Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is actually the second book. I didn’t know that The Hobbit was the first book. I will be reading it after I read the next two books. There is a movie that is based on the book. I did watch the movie again.

Big Warning: there is some violence and a sad part.

Here’s a quick summary of the book: A hobbit named Frodo inherits a ring. It’s a special ring that was made by a evil wizard. If given the ring back to the evil wizard, he can control all races. The ring also allows a person to be invisible. Frodo ends up having the task of going to a lake of fire to destroy the ring. 

Here are some differences between the book and the movie:

  1. In the movie, the company picked to go, but in the book the king of Rivendell picked how to go.
  2. In the movie, the good wizard told Frodo about Gollum following them. In the book, Frodo learns later on after the wizard is dead.
  3.  In the movie, Frodo is only one who looks in the mirror, but Sam also looks in the mirror in the book.

I liked the book and the movie. Now I’m reading The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien.
