'An extraordinary book. It deals with a stupendous theme. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent, in a region where everything is invented, forest, moor, river, wilderness, town and the races which inhabit them.' The Observer 'Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century.' Sunday Telegraph --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Inside Flap
Frodo Baggins knew the Ringwraiths were searching for him--and the Ring of Power he bore that would enable Sauran to destroy all that was good in Middle-earth. Now it was up to Frodo and his faithful servant Sam to carry the Ring to where it could be detroyed--in the very center of Sauron's dark kingdom. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

Unlike The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings doesn't have much pictures, save the decorated arch leading to the entrance of the Moria Mines and five maps outlining Middle-earth's locations. I nevertheless loved those illustrations and how J.R.R. Tolkien did the stylized ancient bold lettering on the One Ring for chapter 2. It's also a much longer novel!
I had an incredible time happily reading the first half to The Fellowship of the Ring that was packed with excitement and daring adventures Frodo and his companions experience during their travels!
J.R.R. Tolkien sheds some light by introducing other Hobbit races which exist throughout Middle-earth besides the Bagginses and Tooks. One of them are the Stoors, the kin Gollum (or should I say Smeagol) once belonged until his grandmother and relatives disowned him. He isn't entirely altogether malevolent.
It left me grieved learning Balin unfairly died! He was the closest Dwarf to Bilbo Baggins. Orcs are cold-blooded savages who really deserve death, not Gollum! Oin, too, suffered a terrible end. I barely held back my tears! (sobbing)
