Sauron, the Dark Lord, has taken all the Rings of Power except for the Ruling Ring and he and his minions are searching frantically for it.
In a village in the Shire, a young hobbit named Frodo Baggins is entrusted to destroy the Ruling Ring. He must leave his home and journey across Middle Earth to the Cracks of Doom in Mordor.
I think this book is very well written and it is good that the author made up the elvish language. Some of the words are hard to read and understand and some songs take 5 pages. The book is also very long.
I think the songs should only be short and the words should be easier to understand.
This book is the first book in a trilogy. I would recommend this book to people aged 12-Adult.
Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892, in Bloemfontein, South Africa. He lived in England for most of his life and was a major scholar of the English language, specialising in Old and Middle English. Twice Professor of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) at the University of Oxford, he also wrote a number of stories, including The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, Unfinished Tales, The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún and The Lord of the Rings.
I really like this book so I would give it a 10/10 but sometimes the language is difficult to understand so I will give it a 9/10.
