This book was very well written. I really liked the plot and characters, and the overall creativity used in this book. Also, many morals were incorporated into this story that added a lot of depth to it. Overall, this tale is a timeless classic, and the perfect read for anyone seeking a little bit of adventure.
Frodo Baggins is a simple hobbit living a relaxing and pleasant life with his Uncle Bilbo in the Shire. But on the day of Bilbo's 111th birthday, things in his life take a new twist. Suddenly Frodo finds that he has inherited the Ring of Power, which belongs to the Dark Lord Sauron, who means to use it to conquer all of middle earth. Before he knows it, Frodo finds himself embarking on a quest to destroy the ring, and rid the world of evil once and for all.
