    Twenty five years ago I d have given The Lord of the Rings my highest possible praise I came to Tolkien s masterpiece on my own, and that meant much to me at twelve The only books that had been reached by me alone were books on mythology and horror Everything else I read, from DH Lawrence to Hemingway to Dickens to Shakespeare and this also included Dracula and Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde because they were true classics , was suggested and sanctioned by my mother for which I will always owe her deeply.But The Lord of the Rings was mine and mine alone It is easy to forget that The Lord of the Rings was not a pop culture phenomenon in the seventies and early eighties It was a fringe book at least in North America , something that was not yet considered a part of the canon, something that was not a name on every boy s lips even if they were just getting to know DD let alone every child s lips Sure it was respected and loved by those who knew it, but knowing it was not a foregone conclusion as it is today, and its audience was almost completely genre oriented In my little community my school and the blocks surrounding my home , I was the first kid to read it.And that first reading was a revelation Sure I d read The Hobbit, but that didn t prepare me for the breadth and depth of The Lord of the Rings Middle Earth in its grandest incarnation To create a fantasy world is one thing, but to breathe life into age...

    Considering that The Lord of the Rings is one of the most popular books of the last century, it s surprising to see how few reviews there are here I get the impression that many people feel guilty about liking it It s a phase you go through, and the less said about it, the better I think this is unfair to the book, which, I am prepared to argue, is a whole lot better than it s generally made out to be I don t think its huge success is just evidence that people have no taste It s something that can be read at than one level, and, before dismissing it, let s take a look at what those levels might be On the surface, it s a heroic fantasy novel, and quite a good one It s a gripping, well realized story, with an interesting fantasy world as background Under the surface story, it s also clear that there s a moral discourse It s not an allegory as Tolkien points out in the foreword, he hated allegory, and we certainly don t have an in your face piece of Christian apology by numbers None the less, the author has constructed some inspiring and thought provoking symbols The Ring confers great power, but the only way to defeat Sauron is to refuse that power, and destroy it, even at great personal cost Frodo s self sacrifice is quite moving I also think that Gandalf is an unusually interesting Christ figure sufficiently so that many people refuse even to accept him as one, though, at least to me, the argument on that point seems convincing He comes from Valinor...

    Writing a review of this masterpiece is impossible I can t do it There s too much to talk about and I love it far too much to articulate my thoughts in a normal way So instead I ve picked one element of each book that I liked the most taken from my list of ten on each review and added them here It s the best I can do, though I know many goodreads users share my difficulty when reviewing this book Anyway, here s my top three 1.Finding your courage The Fellowship of the RingNot all the party have been fully tested With them travel four young hobbits, the most unlikely of companions for such a journey They are the overlooked, the forgotten about, the race that is casually discarded and considered insignificant in the wider world And perhaps this has been the downfall of society in middle earth previously The forces of darkness exploit everything they can get their hands on, from giant spiders to rampaging trolls, from dragons to orcs, from men of the east to the undead, Sauron tries to wield it all This is something the forces of good have not fully considered until recently Within the bosom of the hobbit beats a strong heart of fortitude and resilience My de...

    The true source of the fantasy fiction genre Tolkien has spawned so many fantasy writers since The Lord Of The Rings went into print I love all the earlier ones too like Verne and Carrol and CS Lewis but The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings its like an institution Who else, besides me, has the notion that the real hero in the Lord Of The Rings story is Sam Sam is the typical accidental hero He is the girl or boy next door, the ordinary folk Sam is you and me and represents the courage we all have inside of us He shows that when the going gets tough and the shit hits the fan it is the most unlikely of us that step up Hero s are not always musclebound hunks Not always the James Bond type character or the brilliant lawyer bringing justice to the deserving Almost all of the time the hero is the one that does the things that go unnoticed, uncelebrated There is a hero in all of us whether we know it or not A Hobbit finds himself on a quest that will change his lifeAn adventure full, of peril and strifeAn ancient evil is rising, to come forth againLike a dark cancer, enveloping, causing suffering and painA gold ring will help Frodo on his way, make him invisible to all near byBut give away his location, as Sauron see s him, from most highLike the all seeing eye of Lucifer, the eye from the skiesAnd Frodo is in extreme danger, as a dark army begins to riseStrider, and Legolas, and...

    Three Rings for the Elven kings under the sky,Seven for the Dwarf lords in their halls of stone,Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,One for the Dark Lord on his dark throneIn the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,One Ring to bring them all And in the darkness bind themIn the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. Three thousand years after the defeat of the Dark Lord Sauron before the slopes of Mount Doom, a magic ring falls into the care of Frodo Baggins, a young hobbit from the Shire Aided by his gardener Samwise Gamgee and the mysterious wizard Gandalf the Grey, he takes the ring on a journey to Rivendell, a hidden refuge of the Elves But evil stirs in the fell lands of Mordor, and black riders scour the countryside in search of their master s most prized possession Thus begins the most legendary saga in the history of fantasy It s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door You step onto the road, and if you don t keep your feet, there s no knowing where you might be swept off to I ll kick off this review by telling a little story A story starting, as the stories often do, with once upon a time Once upon a time, there was a little boy who have never read a fantasy book Thinking back ...

    Authors who inspire a movement are usually misunderstood, especially by those they have inspired, and Tolkien is no exception, but one of the biggest misconceptions about Tolkien is the idea that he is somehow an innovator of fantasy He did add a number of techniques to the repertoire of epic fantasy writers, and these have been dutifully followed by his many imitators, but for the most part, these techniques are little than bad habits.Many have called Tolkien by such epithets as The Father of Fantasy , but anyone who makes this claim simply does not know of the depth and history of the fantasy genre For those who are familiar with the great and influential fantastical authors, from Ovid and Ariosto to Eddison and Dunsany to R.E Howard and Fritz Leiber, it is clear that, long before Tolkien, fantasy was already a complex, well established, and even a respected literary genre.Eddison s work contains an invented world, a carefully constructed and well researched archaic language, a powerful and unearthly queen, and a central character who is conflicted and lost between the forces of nobility and darkness Poul Anderson s The Broken Sword , which came out the same year as The Fellowship of the Ring, has distant, haughty elves, deep delving dwarves, a broken sword which must be reforged, an epic war between the armies of light and darkness, another central character trapped betwe...

    The Fellowship of the Ring begins with the Shire and winds its way through the barren lands that lie on the way to Mordor I tried to read this part of the book once, but DNF it then Then I picked up the trilogy bound in one volume and went through it fairly steadily.I ve read that Tolkien wasn t as original as first claimed There is a book called The Broken Sword that has parallels with LotR Nevertheless Tolkien take on traditional myths was unique and groundbreaking The Eddas, the Welsh myths, and Norse myths all are the foundation for this great story.This was a reread and was a satisfactory one because I wanted to reach my favorite parts I looked forward to read Tom Bombadil s part again Did it Then the Rivendell parts, ditto Slowly I wound my way, sometimes following Sam and Frodo, sometimes Aragorn Gandalf appe...

    Bulgarian review below The pilgrimage of Frodo, Sam and their fellows lasted for a year, and it happened so that it took me nearly as long to see them home to the Shire Well, people say good things happen slowly, so I don t regret the journey one bit.Something crosses my mind that Terry Pratchett has shared in A Slip of the Keyboard He was 12 or 13 when he read The Lord of the Rings for the first time His parents left him at some neighbors house to babysit their children while all the adults went visit somebody To pass the time Terry who as all boys wasn t very keen on reading got absorbed in the LoTR and suddenly the Shire had spread out in his imagination and the edges of the shabby carpet turned in the Shire s borders and beyond them adventures were awaiting So, Terry Pratchett read all night long and for the whole next day too He read the novel for 26 hours with some small breaks, of course the bladder of a 12 year old is not a water skin after all In the years to come he continued t...
