Review: The Fellowship of the Ring

The Fellowship of the Ring The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is one series which I wanted to read for so long but somehow skipped so far and I haven't even finished the movie trilogy having seen only the first part and to tell you the truth the end of the story and many more details have (I wouldn't call them spoilers) now become the part of pop-culture. And like I said in my review for Hobbit I finally started reading this series after I finished the first book on the 'Wheel of Time' series.

Coming back to the book, like the start of the book makes clear this is not a trilogy but a single story divided into 6 parts which are presented as three books with book containing 2 books. Fellowship of the Ring is where the story begins and move forward but once again for me it hit the critical part where I have seen the movie which has much more action and at least the first book is lighter on action. Though other details are so wonderful that you just can't refrain from appreciating it. The writing the poems the description all was magical.

The part about the action is not just for this book but rather it's a common peril for the stories or books written 50 years or so ago movies based on them is full of action and original story would be something else entirely. Here at least that much was true but I was dismayed that Boromir doesn't say 'I doesn't simply walk into Mordor' I kept on hoping that the line would come up but alas never did or I missed it big time. I don't like to write long reviews and saying like to is wrong as I am not sure that I would be able to write wonderful reviews like Anish and few other awesome reviewers.

I liked reading this book and can't seem to think of a good reason for skipping this series so far but I am just happy that finally I would be able to find the elements inspired by LOTR in other books but even more than that I want to ensure that I do not miss up on wonderful stories just because I had some preconceived notions about it. But now it would be no longer and I have already started up on the next part.

This one is a no-brainer if you have so far like me skipped this series then finally let go and jump all in and then just Keep on Reading.
