A perilous uest to journey across Middle earth deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of DoomThe Lord of the Rings tells of the great uest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry Pippin and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall mysterious stranger called Strid Three Rings for the Elven kings under the skySeven for the Dwarf lords in their halls of stoneNine for Mortal Men doomed to dieOne for the Dark Lord on his dark throneIn the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lieOne Ring to rule them all One Ring to find themOne 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 possessionThus 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 on it it does seem like an awfully sorry state of affairs He was a devoted reader already as a uite small child but he mostly read children s books like The Hardy Boys and other juvenile and boyish stories like them The one day he discovered this huge brick called The Lord of the Rings and started reading it It would change his life forever There were other books at the time for instance the immensely popular Harry Potter series which was being published back then but none of them could ever hope to compare to what was now the little boy s favourite bookThe little boy grew into adolescence He read other books few of them fantasy He discovered a passion for history and started reading that He read classics and sci fi and mysteries and even religious texts He read books considered by some as among the best books ever And none of them could ever hope to compare to what was still the boy s favourite bookLater that little boy would grow up to become a man though he probably never will grow up completely mind you And he started reading fantasy again A Song of Ice and Fire was one of the first attempts and it uickly turned into a favourite But compared to The Lord of the Rings Nothing It was followed by tons of other fantasy series among them Narnia The Inheritance Cycle Shannara and so on And he loved them all But every once in a while he had to go back to this huge brick to remember that there existed something even better Where now the horse and the rider Where is the horn that was blowingWhere is the helm and the hauberk and the bright hair flowingWhere is the hand on the harpstring and the red fire glowingWhere is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growingThey have passed like rain on the mountain like a wind in the meadow The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow I have been struggling for years to describe The Lord of the Rings How do you actually describe the book you both love than any other and also consider the best book ever written from a or less objective point of viewI recently dumped into the word sublime which I ve only heard used on a few occasions before I knew what it meant but not the exact definition So I checked Of high spiritual moral or intellectual worth Not to be excelled supreme Inspiring awe impressive An ultimate exampleAnd that is pretty much exactly how I would describe it Sublime it is I realised that I would never come closer to an actual description of The Lord of the Rings This is to me not only the main pillar on which the fantasy genre stands but the ultimate masterpiece of literatureI ll use a far fetched example to make my love for this book sound totally crazy put my love for this book in perspective if I had to choose between reading this book once and having unlimited access to all the other books ever released then I would choose this No contest evenI am so very grateful to have been given the chance to come along on the journey of the Fellowship of the Ring To visit so many wonderful places in a land of myths and magic To meet so many fascinating men elves dwarves and other legendary peoples and creaturesAre there any negative things to mention No In my mind there are none at all but I ll say this Tolkien s characters are not the best I have encountered and the storyline of this book is not perfect That s the closest you ll ever come to witness me criticizing this wondrous gem and the only things you ll ever hear from me about it except for fanatical ravings and unsolicited praise I sit beside the fire and thinkof people long agoand people who will see a worldthat I shall never know But all the while I sit and thinkof times there were beforeI listen for returning feetand voices at the door If perfection exists and is obtainable then Tolkien s worldbuilding is perfect There is nothing in either fantasy or any other genre to match it It certainly surpassed all the magical worlds that had come before it and none created since that time have been able to surpass it in turn Writers like Robert Jordan and George RR Martin have made their attempts and now we re talking about of my all time favourite fantasy worlds and series but in my eyes none of them have even come closeI have had tons of delightful experiences while venturing into magnificent worlds of fantasy in Westeros and Narnia and so many others But Middle Earth is like a fictional home I seem to have left behind parts of my heart and soul by the waterfalls of Rivendell the ancient trees of Fangorn forest the plains of Rohan and the marble walls of Minas Tirith And I do not regret that for one secondMost of my standards for comparison also derive from this tome I have yet to encounter a mentor character in fantasy who can compare to Gandalf or a fictional love story that can compare to the tale of Aragorn and Arwen I have yet to encounter a setting as detailed or writing as flawlessly elouent as this And those are only a few examples of aspects in which I consider The Lord of the Rings to be superior to all othersThese musings can only begin to describe how much this book means to me It sparked my passion for reading at a young age It made me love the fantasy genre and all that came with it It made me start creating worlds of my own and in the end find one in particular that I liked so much I started writing stories set in it Why it even made me intrigued by poetry eventually But I have yet to read anything by any famous poet that can match Tolkien s utterly incredible poemsOn my third and fourth and fifth reads of this book I started looking beyond the immediately visible And I found something to admire the man himself John Ronald Reuel Tolkien went on to become my most important role model and despite having been gone from this world for forty years he s been heavily influencing my personal opinions and choices for than a decade And not only literarily but historically politically and philosophically as wellThis book is definitely the one single object that s had the most impact on me and it s meant a lot to me than one should think any object could be capable of But then again it s not really an object after all It is so much A legend trapped in words on pieces of paper A magical gateway to the most amazing world you ll ever seeThis is to me the apex of human creativity and imagination The very best form of art a human mind can produceThere have been many books that I have cherished through the years and I expect there will be many to come But The Lord of the Rings will always be the one I treasure the most of them allIt has changed me forever As it once changed the world forever I amar prestar aen han mathon ne nen han mathon ne chae a han noston ned wilith So that s all I have to say for now I m afraid this was not so much an actual review as simply a story about my experience with and passion for this book If you ve been patient enough to read to the very end I thank you for your attention I ll leave you with the most beautiful passage Tolkien ever wrote and my favourite literary uote of all time

    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
