I enjoyed the intensity of this book

Hard to say goodbye to Bilbo

if you come from The Hobbit, but a good yarn in its own right.


This is a great book!

Fellowship of the Ring

This book is amazing. It's a great start to the Lord of the Rings.


It starts out a bit slow, and that's why most people haven't read it. once you get to book two (same volume different book you may know it as halfway through the Fellowship of the ring if that makes sense) it gets WAAAAY better. inn the second and last book the is such excitement! so get though the first book, and YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This series is GREAT, this book in particular, actually. Full of suspenseful action and adventure for anyone who likes on-going action. Don't worry if it is kind of boring at first, but keep it up, you'll see!!!



I have read this so many times

And it is always great. It is slow sometimes, but so worth it. And there are things in the books not in the movies (especially Tom Bombadil).


great for fantasy geeks


Fellowship is a great beginning to a fantastic series. Don't let the occasional slowness bog you down, it will be worth it in the end. Tolkien's language is beautiful and his books are classics. Highly reccommended.

Start to series

Very good start

a must-read

So many people have told me that they started the book, but just couldn't get into it. Keep reading. The first part of the story is slow because it contains a lot of backstory and references to the Hobbit. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is well worth reading through Tolkien's sometimes extensive descriptions.
