Today, Hannah is going to review a book for us!
I write posts mostly about Hobbits and Rings. I also write book and movie reviews. And just a lot of random posts about my everyday life!
I finished reading this book yesterday! I have one word to describe it: AMAZING!! It is absolutely brilliant! J.R.R. Tolkien made no mistake when he wrote this book!
It was full of action and had quite a few battle scenes. So, if you don't like reading about people getting stabbed or violence, then this is definitely not the book for you!
But, it did hold tales of friendship, loyalty, and courage. For example, Frodo didn't exactly 'want' to take the ring to Mordor, but he knew he had to if Middle Earth was to ever be at peace again. And even though there are hard times in the book when he just felt like giving up, he persevered and went on.
Sam held true to his promise that he wouldn't ever leave Frodo. He stuck with him through the good times and the bad.
And Aragorn protected the little Hobbits from evil, when he could.
There's also the fact that Frodo, Gandalf, Boromir, and all were tempted to take the ring and put it on. It shows that all are tempted in life.
My favorite characters are:
Frodo - He tries to be so brave. Who couldn't like him?
Aragorn - I didn't like Strider at first, but soon came to love his character. He is loyal and true to the Fellowship.
Merry and Pippin - They are quite a funny duo. Pippin can be so careless at times and isn't too bright. Where as Merry is smarter and has to sort of look out for him.
Samwise Gamgee - He too, is very loyal. Especially to Frodo. He tries his best to protect him all throughout the book and won't let Frodo go anywhere without him. At the end of the book, when Frodo is leaving, Sam follows him (and risks his life doing so, because he can't swim and nearly drowned) and tells him that he made a promise to Gandalf, never to leave Frodo or let anything happen to him.
This is one of my favorite books and I can hardly wait to start the Two Towers! I definitely recommend this book!

Thanks, Hannah! That was a great review! I haven't read any of The Lord of the Rings books yet, but they definitely sound intriguing! Make sure to go check out and follow Hannah's blog, Living a Life 4 Christ, here!
