Their journey continues into Lorien were they are safe guarded by the power of good fro the elves although they must soon move on, There they look into there minds and the future with the mirror of Galadriel and witness many other wonders before setting of on there boats made by the elves. They continue on before reaching what I think is the most important part of the book, where the fellowship breaks up, here Boromir tries to lure the ring from Frodo, but he fails in an attack from the Orcs, here the fellowship is scattered and Sam and Frodo leave to continue the epic journey.
Although the book was first published in 1954 it deals with many modern day emotions and feelings such as the power of jealousy that broke up the fellowship, the powers of greed and leadership that first prevented the ring from being destroyed and Gollum becoming so selfish, the greed and jealousy that is created by the ring is also shown in Bilbo and Frodo’s reluctance to give the ring to others when he becomes attacked to it. It shows how greed causes corruption and betrayal and I in many ways a very close image of what modern day greed and jealousy is also the desire to want the best and most valuable things.
In many ways like George Orwell’s Animal farm, Lord of the rings could be related to politics this time promoting communisms and equality. Lord of the rings; The fellowship of the ring is in my opinion a masterpiece as it not only tells a riveting story line but it is timeless and faces many issues. The text is also as amazing as the story as there are many rhymes and verses that bring another dimension to the story. The magical creatures are described in such a way that you feel as if you know the characters and can see a clear picture of them in your mind.
“A strange looking weather beaten man … listening intently to hobbit talk… he was smoking a long stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing supple leather boots that fitted him well… that were caked in mud… a travel stained cloak of heavy dark green cloth was drawn close around him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that over shadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen. ” Page 206
The language such as the words “Curiously” and “Caked” are alternatives that make the text more interesting than strangely carvers or covered in mud , also the idea that the man is wearing a hood and the gleam of his eyes gives a mysterious feel bout the book. This type of interesting text is continued throughout the great story line, and this is what I think makes Lord of the rings; The fellowship of the ring such and interesting read. I would defiantly read the other two books The two towers and The return of the king so I could complete the epic adventure.
I would recommend this book to people my age especially if they wanted to watch the film as the film can be better understand and enjoyed by reading the book. Although I do not normally choose fantasy stories I enjoyed this one and would consider others.
