My Thoughts on “The Fellowship of the Ring” by JRR Tolkien

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.
