The first volume in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy: The Fellowship Of The Ring is the epic adventure fantasy novel by J R R Tolkein. Published in 1954 by George Allen and Unwin, it follows the story of Frodo Baggins from the Shire who is bequeathed a magical ring with dark powers. For the first time since the so-called Elder days, Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves and Men must work together to overcome the ominous threat of a terrifying enemy.
Tolkein creates a deeply vast world of riveting histories, romantic folklore and ancient legends, riddled with beauty and magic that uproots you from daily banality and firmly tethers you to a world of fantastical lore and mysticism. The details concerning the histories of this fantasy world from language to attire is incredibly thorough documenting ancient legends and wars of years past. Given its context, I can forgive the many clichés surrounding prophecies and quests and villains that are evil for no good reason because this piece of fiction is undeniably a pioneering contribution in the world of fantasy literature.
