Some stories live on in us forever, whether we are old or young, and Lord of the Rings is definitely such a story. His love for his mythical world emanates from every word. The Witch-king enters and stands off against Gandalf before the Rohirrim arrive, but in the film Orcs invade the city after Grond breaks the Gate.
Apparently, there's too much description and not enough conflict. Also filmed were the attempts by Faramir to recapture Osgiliath as were scenes in the city itself.
I skimmed over most of the poetry and songs on the first reading but that material introduced depth and mystery to the story that I appreciated more after reading the Silmarillion. When the Fellowship leaves, she gives them boats to continue their journey down the river Anduin as well as more powerful gifts.
The forces of evil shall prevail. If Tolkien wanted to write something to make you go to sleep or read something else that's actually interesting, he succeeded.
The book really transports its readers into an ethereal place. If you finished it and still think it is boring His battle with Saruman in Moria are among the best parts of the novel.
Well that just makes me angry. But if you are an average or below reader then high school levels, I would not attempt this book quite yet. He emerges out as a pure heart supporting the noble cause of destroying the ring to save the middle earth. In the end of the novel he is declared as the king of the Gondor.
A lot of details can be a good thing, but it makes the book very tedious. It disappoints me that in the second book Frodo, Sam, and Gollum part doesn't come until the end. Thus, the muster of Gondor is absent from the film, and major captains and generals including Imrahil of the Tower Guard and the Knights of Dol Amroth are not present.
Middle Earth in its grandest incarnation. I highly suggest it for anyone who wants an epic fantasy, fun read or simply beautiful tale. Frodo sets off with three companions, fellow hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam.
I found these two chapters and other sections restful but fascinating interludes among considerable action in other chapters which are filled to the brim with interesting happenings. I guess that's just fantasy though. The amazing trilogy The Lord of the Rings turned out to be a series of films later on.
And if there's not enough conflict for you, you probably didn't read very far into the book. While Frodo keeps suffering from the greed for the ring, Sam is the one who supports him and keeps him standing against the brutal journey. Gandalf holds it back so that the party can escape, but then he falls with it into the abyss.
The main flaws I can find in this story are lack of female characters Galadriel is still great though and some characters seem to be always good, while others always bad.
I can empathise with those who found language difficult, as I am not yet thirteen and did not understand word such as 'pertness' and 'trothplighted' initially, untill they were explained I think trothplighted is an EXCELLENT word but still enjoyed the richness of it.
Tolkien did not like the title The Return of the King, believing it gave away too much of the storyline, but deferred to his publisher's preference. Honestly tho, Lord of the Rings fails as a read in every aspect.
It is not a novel for someone who prefers fast-paced action. This is the classic fantasy that will continue to be popular for years to come. If you see one missing just send me an e-mail below.
Then, I thought I should start reading the books to get a better understanding of the characters and plot.
So, did it ever once occur to you that having that much description was the idea?But there are some good parts to this book, which kind of redeem the Lord of the Rings, but it doesn’t cancel out the gigantic amount of drivel in this book.
