The Lord of the Rings is beloved by millions of people all around the world. The story begins with the elderly Bilbo Baggins entrusting his magic ring to his young cousin Frodo, who then learns that the ring was forged by the Dark Lord Sauron to rule all others. While Sauron searches furiously for it, Frodo must take a long and dangerous journey to the Cracks of Doom to destroy the ring.

Tolkien took me on a faxcinating tour of Middle-Earth's varied and extraordinary landscapes, my pulse racing all the while. A fantasy classic and an exciting epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings is truly a timeless masterpiece.
