My Thoughts on “The Fellowship of the Ring” by JRR Tolkien
I am reading The Lord of the Rings with my twins. We recently finished reading “The Fellowship of the Ring.”
It has been a lot of fun reading this favorite book of mine with my girls. They get so excited and worried and curious about what is happening next.
As for me, I have noticed how much Tolkien writes in passive narrative, yet to me he is a master world-builder, amazing at character development, and writes a fantastic story.
Though, I may admit that part of my love of his story is how much of it I grew up with. I mean I knew who Bilbo & Frodo Baggins were before I knew of Garth Brooks (my favorite singer) or Charles Dickens.
