I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

66. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

#66



Title: The Fellowship of the Ring
Series: The Lord of the Rings
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Copyright: 2001 (1954)
Pages: 424
Format: Audiobook
Rating: 5/5 stars
Finished: 8-25-08

Just like the rest of The Lord of the Rings series, I can't say much more than what has already been said before about the books. I can say that it has been a long time since I had read the entire series, and I am really enjoying reacquainting myself with the characters and their world. I find it interesting, having recently rewatched the movies, to see how events were rearranged and changed to fit the film version.

This is one of those books that I think everyone should read at least once. You really can't appreciate the epic scale of the story until you've experienced it for yourself.

What a coincidence that we should both post of The Lord of the Rings on the same day. Or is it! I have to say that as I sat having tea at Ted Sandyman's Mill yesterday I did think you would have been exactly the right person to have for company. you would have understood the magic of the experience exactly.
