The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
Series: The Lord of the Rings #1
Format: Paperback

The first thing that comes to mind is… The hobbits are not that stupid!  Okay so I read the trilogy back in the fourth grade, but it had greatly faded from memory by the time the movies came out.  So as I read I understood some of the shortenings that the movie used, but the fact that the hobbits are so stupid in the movie but not so in the book… anyway.  I was wary starting off because of other people’s opinions, but I have to admit that I love Tolkien’s details.  He immerses you in a way few other writers do.  I do find it frustrating that the appendixes and such are all at the end of the third book because when I’m carrying the first one around campus I can’t look things up.   Story wise though of course it is wonderful.  It is a classic.

Edit: Almost every other book has the cover that I own but honestly I own the movie covers of these which I hate so here is something pretty for you.
