Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien.
(Fellowship Of The Ring.)
A fantasy book set in an ancient ‘imaginary’ or alternative time frame, before history was recorded.
This amazing book is set around 60 years or so after ‘The Hobbit’, sort of a prologue to the Lord Of The Rings, for a younger audience. The main character in the Lord Of The Rings is Frodo (Bilbo’s heir, who was the protagonist in The Hobbit). Bilbo is celebrating his ‘eleventy first’ (111) birthday. Bilbo puts on a massive party to celebrate the occasion, but Bilbo didn’t gather every one just for this one reason. He had another less obvious motive he wanted to say his last goodbyes, before leaving, The Shire, and possibly middle Earth for good. The ring ,which Bilbo found in the caves in the goblin mines, possibly isn’t actually as innocent as you might think. This ring in question is an ancient relic from a forgotten time and bursting with dark power. If you were to hold the ring for long enough you would slowly fade away, that’s just by near the thing, imagine what it could be capable of in the wrong hands. Therefore it must be destroyed at any cost, before it’s too late.
TEEN RATING : ‘A type of book that’s almost impossible to find anymore these days.’ 5/5. 13+.
