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)
I had been pleased J.R.R. Tolkien finally decided to place focus on Gollum by his long-awaited reappearance in Book Four of The Two Towers. The imp played too small a role back in The Hobbit, and I really have a thing for that Middle-earth character. He cracked me up in certain parts of the second Lord of the Rings novel! Had no idea the little rascal's a finicky eater! Whether Smeagol will stay good or regress back to his devious Gollum self, I will not say. Read on and find out what happens!!
