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

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1)The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This remains one of my favourite books, upon yet another re-read. The world build is so fantastic, and so welcoming and yet foreboding all at the same time.

The characters are easy to love. Sam with his ernest need to protect Frodo, Merry and Pippin with their steadfast loyalty and their sense of adventure which does begin to crumble. Gandalf with his intelligence and wisdom. Aragorn. Legolas.

And the language, and messages within this book always stay with me. I think years from now I’ll still recall lines and passages and rejoice in knowing them.

“The future, good or ill, was not forgotten, but ceased to have any power over the present,” in particular is a line I love.
