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:
- In the movie, the company picked to go, but in the book the king of Rivendell picked how to go.
- In the movie, the good wizard told Frodo about Gollum following them. In the book, Frodo learns later on after the wizard is dead.
- 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.
