Product Summary

Summary Of The Book
The Lord of The Rings epic centers around the Dark Lord Sauron and the One Ring that he forged himself. Sauron forged a special ring for himself, the One Ring. This ring had the power to rule all the other rings and thus enabled Sauron to control all the other people of Middle-Earth. However, he was defeated by an army of Elves and Men, and his ring is taken by Isildur. Isildur is killed and the ring is lost

Two thousand years later, the Ring surfaces again. It is discovered by a stoor-hobbit called Deagol, and he is killed by his friend Smeagol who covets the Ring. Smeagol is banished by his people to the Misty Mountains. His life is extended by the Ring, but he becomes a twisted creature called Gollum.

From Gollum, the Ring falls into the hands of a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins. At the beginning of the first book, Frodo Baggins, Bilbo’s nephew, inherits the ring. Neither Bilbo nor Frodo know the true nature of the Ring, but their friend Gandalf the Wizard suspects what it is. When it is confirmed that it is the One Ring, Gandalf advises Frodo to get rid of it, for it has a tendency to corrupt whoever possesses it.

Frodo, along with his friend Samwise Gamgee, and his cousins Merry and Pippin, set off to Mount Doom, a volcano where the Ring was forged. The One Ring can only be destroyed at the place where it was forged. Frodo volunteers to undertake the perilous journey to Mount Doom in Mordor. Frodo and his friends set off together on their quest, but on the way, circumstances lead to the Fellowship being broken.

Sam and Frodo are separated from the rest of the group. Pippin and Merry are kidnapped. Sam and Frodo continue on their trek to Mordor on their own. The others follow Merry and Pippin's kidnappers.

The Lord Of The Rings is one of the most influential works of literature ever written. It continues to inspire works in the fields of arts and entertainment, several decades after it was written, and has a cult following. The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy has been adapted for the movies.
