Title: Lord of the Rings (sort of three books, sort of one. The three are Fellowship of the Ring, Two Towers, and Return of the King)
Author: J. R. R. Tolkien
Book blurb: Through the urgings of the enigmatic wizard Gandalf, young hobbit Frodo Baggins embarks on an urgent, incredibly treacherous journey to destroy the One Ring. This ring -- created and then lost by the Dark Lord, Sauron, centuries earlier -- is a weapon of evil, one that Sauron desperately wants returned to him. With the power of the ring once again his own, the Dark Lord will unleash his wrath upon all of Middle-earth. The only way to prevent this horrible fate from becoming reality is to return the Ring to Mordor, the only place it can be destroyed. Unfortunately for our heroes, Mordor is also Sauron's lair. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is essential reading not only for fans of fantasy but for lovers of classic literature as well.
Quick endorsement: These books are epic, and if you read them all in one, they’re gonna seem huge. But in reality, they aren’t a hard read! It’s true that Hobbit is even easier, but these are usually pretty fast-moving and very interesting. Classics that you need to read!
