The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien

A book review by Faith Thompson


The deadly Ringwraiths are searching for a hobbit — Frodo Baggins. They want what he carries: The Ring of Power, which will enable the Dark Lord Sauron, its creator, to reclaim his rule. If Sauron recovers his Ring, all will be lost.

Battling Orcs, greedy men, and the Wraiths themselves — and aided by his gardener Sam, a wizard named Gandalf, and a mysterious Ranger named Aragorn — Frodo makes his painfully slow way across Middle-earth to Mordor, Sauron’s kingdom.  This is the only place where the Ring can be destroyed. Its seduction is so great that no one can wield it. All Frodo can hope for is the Ring’s destruction.
