The Fellowship of the Ring - By J.R.R. Tolkien

First book in the epic trilogy 'Lord of the Ring'. This is fantasy at its best and you haven't experienced magical writing if you haven't read this book.

The tale follows Bilbo Baggin's nephew and heir, Frodo. You may remember how Bilbo found a ring in the goblin caves in the book The Hobbit, which is much more than meets the eye. It sets off events which will take Frodo from his home in the Shire, to the dark lands controlled by the evil Sauron.

What can I say about this book. In general, since the next few reviews might reveal information those who haven't read through all the books, I'll give my opinion of the series as a whole here. This is magnificent. I'm not lying when I say this book is what made me love to read. I've read for a long time, but until I came across this book, I didn't read all too frequently. It was a year ago I started the Lord of the Rings and now, at least 60 books later, I can still say it is one of, if not the best of all. Epic fantasy at its best is how I'd describe this. A must read.

Overall Rating: 10/10
