Review on the book of The lord of The Ring
“The Lord of The Ring” is one of the most fantastic story written by J.R.R. Tolkien. His intelligence in imagining the world which was divided into four areas, South, North, West and East – each was authorized by the great power with unique characters – is outstanding. The creation of the names of the main characters and the names of the places is one of his amazing ability of imagination. Unlike the other fantasy novels, these three books – The Fellowship of The Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of The King – focus on describing how perilous is the journey of the Hobbit, the Ring bearer, to extinguish the Lord of the Ring which causes great chaos everywhere due to such a great power to every one wearing it.
There were 8 rings made by Sauron to control the world. Unfortunately, the main ring was lost and found by a Hobbit, named Bilbo. Sauron needed tens of years to find it. Then, he felt that the ring was somewhere in the Shire. So, he commanded his followers to find it to get his power back. The Hobbit who kept it for years was getting older, so he asked his niece, Frodo to keep it. Gandalf, the white wizard who used to be Bilbo’s friend, came to Shire where the Hobbit lived. He told Bilbo that Sauron had known that the ring was in the Shire, so he asked whether Bilbo still kept it. Bilbo told him that he had given it to Frodo. He, Bilbo’s nephew, then agreed to bring the ring to the mountain of Mordor to destroy it after Gandalf had told the complete story about it and how dangerous it would be when the ring came back to Sauron. The journey to Mordor was full of dangerous experiences that almost made him died, yet he succeeded to destroy the ring.
The plot of the story seems so easy to follow. If the writers hadn’t put the conflicts arising the curiosity of the reader to see the solutions or the extreme challenges Frodo had to face, the story would have been so boring. What made the story interesting is how Frodo, an ordinary person who didn’t have any power, fought the great power of the king of the dark, Sauron which was helped by other great powers too. The other reason why the reader will be stuck on these three books is the beauty of the language, especially the poems that were used by the elfs to communicate. They are not only touching, but also teaching moral lessons. Despite the strange and difficult words chosen by the writer to describe the situation and the characters, he was successful in leading the reader to come into his imaginative world he created.
Reading these books will show us that how great the power is can be beaten by the simple, and honest man. Besides, these books teach us how to express our feelings through beautiful poems and languages.
