The Lord Of The Rings
The Fellowship Of The Ring

One of the most extraordinary tales ever told - the books by J.R.R.Tolkien are real classics and you should not miss to read them all. This tale is the mother of all fantasy stories and will lead you into another world - the world of Middle-Earth.

An ancient Ring thought lost for centuries has been found, and through a strange twist in fate has been given to a small Hobbit named Frodo. When Gandalf discovers the Ring is in fact the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron, Frodo must make an epic quest to the Cracks of Doom in order to destroy it! However he does not go alone. He is joined by Gandalf, Legolas the elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Aragorn, Boromir and his three Hobbit friends Merry, Pippin and Samwise. Through mountains, snow, darkness, forests, rivers and plains, facing evil and danger at every corner the Fellowship of the Ring must go. Their quest to destroy the One Ring is the only hope for the end of the Dark Lords reign!

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Get the books before you watch the movie, probably you'll enjoy the movie even more by knowing the full story!

You should read not only the Ring trilogy, but also the Silmarillion (which contains tales of the Old Ages - starting with the creation of Middle Earth. In the Ring trilogy, reference is often made to the Old Ages).

And before reading the Ring Trilogy, you should read the The Hobbit. Even if this one is written like a children's book, it's the story before the trilogy and will tell you how the Ring long lost showed up again.
