The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1): Thoughts on The Prologue till the end of Ch.3

It was a bright Wednesday afternoon when the newspapers had the weekly films; I have seen a poster of a great film that captured my mind. The Fellowship of the Ring accessed my life by 2003; I remember being just merely thirteen.

Continuing toward my weekly quest of collecting films and actors pictures fashioned by my teenage hands into my scrapbook. O! I admire how the years passed! It was not till 2004 when I finally introduced to the motion-pictures that were viewed over a cable channel.

A year passed unto execution the determination of obtaining the novels, and I did. Also, more years till I started reading the novels throughout Keen on Tolkien.


(The Lord of the Rings #1)

The Lord of the Rings is a fantasy novel in three volumes: The Fellowship of the RingThe Two Towers, and The Return of the King. The plot revolves around the quest to destroy the evil One Ring, forged by Sauron, the Lord of the Rings. Tolkien originally conceived The Lord of the Rings as one long story told in six books, but he instead divided it into three parts due to publishing demands.

The Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the Ring): Prologue and Ch.1 discussion

I have been on and off trying to read the works of The legendary J.R.R. Tolkien. Started a project blog long ago, but it was deleted due to a technical mistake; until last week. I finally started a Goodreads reading group aka Keen On Tolkien, where we aim to read J. R. R. Tolkien’s books by order, starting The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

The Reading Schedule is as the following:
1. We will be reading a chapter for a week starting Sunday.
2. The chapter discussions will be every Saturday.

Therefore, last week we read the prologue and Chapter 1 of-of Lord of The Rings; and had Saturday 14/10/2018 for Group discussion.

P.S. I dream of turning this project like The Classics Club, so if you would like to join, please do go ahead.
