    One thought on “The Ring Goes South”

    1. Reviewing as I read: Chapter 1:Light and quiet chapter. Calm after the storm. Love the Elves. Also, BILBO!! Chapter 2: Bilbo seems different from the Bilbo of the Hobbit. More talkative and more surface, somehow. More old bumbling fool than an old and wise hobbit. Or maybe I just remember him differently. I like Elrond. He is wise, but quite often he makes remarks with a smile. Like when Frodo volunteers to take the Ring to Mordor, and Sam jumps out from his corner and says, "But you wouldn't le [...]

    2. I didn't think I could enjoy Book One more than I did. I liked this one more. At this rate, LOTR could become my favourite book, even ahead of East of Eden. Reading it is like slipping into a clean fluffy comforter by a warm fire. I noticed as I reached the end that Tolkien has completely engulfed the vocabulary portion of my brain, without my even realizing it. Full sentences in this book will sometimes contain as many of his made up words and names as true English ones. So immersed I am in the [...]

    3. "One does not simply walk into Mordor" - nop, this MEME is not found in the book. In general the movie follows this book quite closely and didn't notice major deviations (although watched the movie many years ago last time so might mix some things up) but the story was very captivating even with knowing the main story from the movie series (similar to Harry Potter series).

    4. Ahh I think this is one of my favorite parts of this series.So Frodo and the other munchkins have made safe and sound(ish) to Elrond and Rivendell - nothing like the happy singing place it was in the Hobbit - its all a lot more serious this time around. But its not the end! Elrond gets the band together for an epic road trip to somewhere dark.The trip south is amazing. I can almost see the places, feel the weather, and smell the damn wolves prowling around. The journey through Moria is (of cours [...]

    5. The reason I read this book is because it is the next book in a series I have been reading (The Lord of the rings). The category that this book completes is a book written by a male being J.R.R. Tolkein. The parts of this book that I liked are that it continues on with the series very well still building up the storyline so that its interesting and intriguing. The good thing about this book is that it also has a bit more action in it making it more exciting than book one and also making it a bit [...]

    6. The Ring Goes South (The Lord of The Rings #2) makes no account of a misfortunate end for Boromir as does the movie version in The Fellowship of The Ring. However, Frodo and Sam Gamgee still travel towards Mordor and the Fellowship is indeed broken. At the Council of Elrond it was agreed upon who might accompany Frodo, the bearer of the ring whose sole task was to destroy the ring. The journeying was tougher than anyone had expected and even though the Caradhras mountain had defeated the company [...]

    7. Well, Frodo has reached Rivendell safely after his enduring journey with Merry, Pip, Sam. Thanks to the strider a.k.a Aragorn. This book speaks of the formation of The Fellowship Of The Ring and what they decide to do with the ring. After What, it is How and Where. The adventures inside the Mines of Moria, the soothing stay at LothLorien, the magical moments of Lady Galadriel are beautifully presented by Tolkien. Will the fellowship break and Will Gandalf fall - are the key questions that this b [...]

    8. J'ai lu toute la trilogie du Seigneur des anneaux, péniblement. Avec un certain intérêt, mais constamment frustrée par les longueurs. J'ai sauté plusieurs pages, des passages véritablement interminables. Les personnages, les univers, la complexité du contenu historique, c'était fascinant. Mais le rythme était trop lent, le style un peu trop naïf à mon goût et l'écriture, pauvre - comme je le mentionnais dans mon commentaire sur Bilbo le hobbit, c'est peut-être à cause d'une mauvai [...]

    9. So follows the continuation of Frodo and his company's journey, setting South in hopes of destroying the One Ring and banishing Sauron's evil that is spreading out from Mordor.I really enjoyed this next part and loved getting to hear more from different kinds of elves and seeing the evil growing.Pick it up, give it a go and enjoy! ^.^Gén.

    10. I liked this half better than the first, simply because more happened. It was more exciting and the plot twists more dramatic!

    11. I can see now where the films deviate and how they blend the books together, like the climax of this book and the beginning of the next. Gandalf's 'death' was also very well done.
