J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring is the official first chapter of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, an unmatched series in terms of mythology and sheer invention. Tolkien’s brilliant imagination has shaped a world so detailed and vivid it still captivates years later. Frodo Baggins, the adopted son of The Hobbit’s Bilbo Baggins, has recently inherited Bilbo’s ring, a solid gold ring that renders the wearer invisible. This ring, unbeknownst to Frodo, is the One Ring of Sauron, a dark lord who is slowly reacquiring his power. When Sauron discovers the Ring is still intact, he sends his minions to hunt it down, forcing Frodo to flee the only home he has ever known. On his journey, Frodo meets an array of entrancing characters, each more fantastical than the next, and finds much more adventure than the small hobbit could ever have bargained for. Tolkien’s novel has become immense in its cultural prominence, and the dizzying depth of his tale has made an everlasting impression on literary circles.
