The Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. Tolkien Don’t let this less than perfect rating fool you! I love Lord of the Rings, and it is literally one of my favorite things on this entire planet. It’s beautifully written, has well-developed characters, and a storyline for the ages. I do wish it didn’t take so long for it to get going, but once it does, it’s worth it to have worked your way through to semi-boring parts in the beginning. I love the world Tolkien has crafted here, and this series holds a special place in my heart–I grew up with it always around! Rereading it now makes so incredibly happy, and I love living through the magic of this world.Read more?
