What's Christian Reading? The Fellowship of the Ring

A couple of weeks ago, Christian finally took my advice and started reading The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. In today's post, Christian gives us his thoughts on the first book, The Fellowship of the Ring. This was a tough book for him to tackle, but he did a great job and enjoyed it, I think. Let's see.

Here's what Christian says the book is about.

"The book is about a hobbit named Frodo who is gifted with a magic ring that when you put it on you turn invisible. But the servants of Mordor can sense your presence and see you. He and his hobbit friends set off to Rivendell and to Buckland, another hobbit town. Rivendell is a pace of safe haven. The Elven leader Elrond calls a council and forms the fellowship of Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Legolas the elf, Gimli the dwarf, the men Aragorn and Boromir and Gandalf the wizard. From Rivendell they depart on their quest.

"Frodo has to take the ring to Mount Doom in the heart of Mordor while facing off things like Ringwraiths and orcs. The fellowship has some amazing adventures and some bad problems, but I won't tell you about them, I'll let you read about it for yourself."

What did Christian like best about the book?

"My favorite part was when Bilbo disappeared during his 111st birthday party, because it offered a good laugh by the way the other hobbits reacted."

Was there anything that Christian did not like about the book?

"I liked everything in this book except for the part when Boromir attacked Frodo."

So, how did Christian rate The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien?

He gave it five out of five flaming monkey heads.
