Dragons, trolls, orks, elves, dwarves, and hobbits, are all part of an epic quest in my favorite books. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien is made up of 3 books. They were all written between 1937 and 1949. My favorite parts of the books are the black riders, the trees attacking Saruman’s tower, and Sauron’s tower falling.
In the first book, The Fellowship of the Ring, we are introduced to the Black Riders. This is one of my favorite parts because they are menacing. They are immortal wraiths that go after the ring of power. Frodo, the main character, had the ring and was able to escape them with the help of Aragorn.
Another one of my favorite parts can be found in book two, The Two Towers. It is when the trees attack Saruman’s tower. The trees are much better fighters than the orks, and much smarter. One of the things they do is break the dam and water comes rushing in.
My favorite part of the last book, The Return of the King, is when Sauron’s tower goes crashing down to the ground. I have been waiting for this to happen the whole book. Sauron was the main villain in all the books.
Overall, the main story is how Frodo Baggins and his friend Sam are trying to get to Mordor and destroy the ring of power in Mount Doom. The most important characters are Gandolf, legolas, Frodo Baggins, Sam, Aragorn, and Gimli. These are the good guys, the main bad guy though, is Sauron.
If you were wondering, Frodo Baggins is a hobbit who lives in the shire, and his uncle had the ring of power but gave it to him when he wanted to go somewhere quiet to write on his book. So then the story began. They left the shire, or their home, and began their quest to destroy the ring at mount doom in Mordor.
I’d highly recommend this book series, and also they do have movies too. I recommend those two. This is probably one of my favorite movie series besides Star Wars. If you have read the book or watched the movie, what’s your favorite part?
