The Lord of the Rings

Post by fun-Kliste » December 30th, 2010, 8:24 pm

Trilogy The Lord of the Rings
Written by J.R.R. Tolkien

Image

Fantasy book full of dark magic, dark wizards, charming elves, warlike dwarfs, sickening orcs etc..

The story ,,revolves'' around a ring, BAD ring which some time before Bilbo Baggins found on way with dwarfs to one evil dragon.
(Hobbit)

After looong time Bilbo celebrates his 111 birthdays and Wizard Gandalf found that Bilbo own ring and things started move..

Frodo, Bilbo's son and his three friends went to take away ring to Rivendell, realm of elves.

There was decided that Frodo and group with another few ppl ll continue in way to destroy the ring.

Way is long, danger is everywhere and winner can by only One..
After long wars when lot of lives left.. left for better times..

At last ring was destryed and his owner Sauron and his army of orcs too..


Well.. I won't write more cause, better is just open book(s)
I only would like to say.. I was a bit sad how were made movies on these books..
Because rly nice parts of books.. movies are missing..
movies are just about wars.. and in books wars aren't main point..

Hihi...
I've read the books for many many times, all of em.
And if i am not wrong each series
("The fellowship of the ring", "The two towers" & "The return of the King")
contains 2 books, so it make the total of 6 books x)
And they were written for long time, as there were brakes in Tolkien's life
and of course, there was the I World war
and of course, there was also the II World war.
Man had seen much in his long life and he was also impressed of mythology (no wonder, lol)
and many of his characters and stories can be linked with different mythological creatures, gods and stories.
He was so impressed of myths, also because he believed that myths hold the fundamental truths.

I actually saw the movies before i read the books.
ofc the first book i read from the series was "Hobbit"
so it was easier to read (watch) "The Lord of the Rings" and understand what is going on, later
Movies are all very dramatic at times and very well made
and for me they are already the "classics", which you can watch over and over again and never get tired of them.
But same is about the books :D
Books contain more information as movies are almost always "smaller part" of the books :P

but neverheless,
both are good and classics for me.
I really like Tolkien and it is fascinating for me to read other things he has writen also.
For example "Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth"
Reading them, you can see that the "Lord of the rings" series and "Hobbit"
are only a small part of the almighty Tolkien's creation

Books are ALWAYS better then films. And I dare to say that LOTR films were boring and overrated.

Well, I have read LOTR like 60 times or so. And everytime I read it, I find something new in it. Something I didn't see last time I was reading it.

BTW, the similarity of polish and czech languages always amazes me :)

Its a Great Franchise, I have all the books. Although I do love the books though, I completely disagree with the notion of the films being 'boring'. Sure they dont tell 1/4 of the story thats in the book, but in my opnion, the films do present a good visual illustration of what was previously mentally pictured. In other words, I love both forms, the only diffrence is that the book focuses on the plot whilst films, as they should, focus More on the momentury action rather the long term effects.
