Lord Of The Rings – an epic fantasy novel written by J. R. R. Tolkien, is perhaps the most elaborate and detailed fantasy world ever. The story of Lord Of The Rings began from a smaller and less complex children’s fantasy novel – The Hobbit. The sequel, as Lord Of The Rings was meant to be, went on to become one of the best fantasy works of all times.
Although most of you do not need to read about LOTR, for rare few who might not have seen the movie or read the book, here is a brief summary. The events in Lord Of The Rings take place in the fictional world of Middle-Earth. The events are centered around the One Ring – a ring of power created by the Dark Lord Sauron as the ultimate weapon to rule the other Rings Of Power and conquer all of Middle-Earth.
The story unfolds as the hobbit, Frodo Baggins, starts a long journey from Shire to Mount Doom, the place where the ring was forged and the place where it can be destroyed. Aided and protected by humans, a dwarf, the elves, a wizard and fellow hobbits; hunted by the Orcs and the Ringwraiths and guided by the treacherous Gollum – Frodo’s journey through the fantasy world is one of the most epic tales of all times.
