Upon reading the Lord of the Rings for the first time I was utterly suprised. My father had suggested I read it because it was one of HIS favorites. I thought it was going to be prolonged and boring, man was I wrong. In “The Fellowship of the Ring” I began becoming enveloped in the story, I was so deeply into it I lost all track of time. I was frightened by the first mention and encounters with the Black Riders, I laughed when Bombadil was introduced, I was skeptical at Strider (Aragorn) until he was proven a friend. When Frodo was stabbed I thought that all was lost. I found tears in my eyes when Gandalf fell with the balrog. All the climactic sub-plots in the first book of three took me to the brinks of my imagination. And that was only the beginning of the tale of the rings. Nothing I have ever read can compare to the spectacular story of the Lord of the Rings, and I have only scratched the surface of the first book.
