The Lord of the Rings

J.R.R. Tolkien's 50th Anniversary One-Volume
Edition book. This has all 3 books into 1
Many years have passed since 'The Lord of the Rings' Trilogy came to theaters and now 'The Hobbit' is getting a lot of attention from the LotR fans once more. When I saw 'The Hobbit' I really liked it because it was very different than LotR. When I was watching the movie, I had remembered that my parents bought me the 50th Anniversary One-Volume Edition of The Lord of the Rings for me. So far I am enjoying the books but there are some sections where I have fallen asleep and have to re-read it again. 

The 'Fellowship of the Ring' is a slow book at first but I promise you that it does get better. While I was reading it I could see where the book was used for the movie. It was really fun to read them and visualize the movie while I was in that particular spot of the book. I am almost finished with 'Fellowship of the Ring' and will be moving on to 'Two Towers'. I cannot wait to see what J.R.R. Tolkien has in that book. This is my first tie actually siting down and reading the books. I have to say, they are really good and those of you who have not ever read them, DO IT!!! It is so worth the time and effort trying to trudge your way through book one but it does get better latter on! 

This trilogy to me so far is at a 3.5 of 5 and I encourage all of you to try and read them as well as 'The Hobbit'.
