The Fellowship of the ring

Comments:

“Filled with marvels and strange terrors… an extraordinary, distinguished piece of work.”

-New York Herald Tribute

“For anyone who likes the genre to which it belongs, the Heroic quest, I cannot imagine a more wonderful Christmas present… No fiction I have read in the last five years has given me more joy than the Fellowship of the ring”

-W. H. Auden, The new York Times Book Reviews

“Brilliant in its telling as it is broad in its scope… An exciting good book, and far more than Fantasy to us, who have come into possession of the Great Ring of Power, and have turned back one assault of the shadow only to see it, as Gandalf warned, ‘take another shape and grow again.’ “

What’s the book about:

The dark fearsome Ringwraiths are searching fora Hobbit. Frodo Baggins knows that they are seeking him and the ring he bears – the ring of power that will enable evil Sauron to destroy all that is good in Middle-earth. Now it is up to to Frodo and his faithful servant, Sam, with a small band of companions, to carry the ring to the one place it can be destroyed: Mount Doom, in the very center of Sauron’s realm. This begins J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic the Lord of the rings, which continues in The two towers and the return of the king.

What I think of the book:

One day, Since I had been very good at a place, just sitting down and reading Percy Jackson: sea of monsters ( which is a really good book, by the way), my parents said they would buy anything about $15.00 or under. At the time I been wanting to watch the Lord of the rings trilogy, and I’ve also been wanting to read the books too, so I chose a Lord of the rings/the hobbit boxed set. It was over $15.00, like About $18.00, but my parents got it for me anyway for me, because they love me. On the day it came, I finished Percy Jackson book: Sea of Monsters (which, by the way, was a really good book), and walked out dog for the first time (wasn’t a good one). I began with the hobbit, but after a couple of chapters, I got kind of bored, and decided to read the fellowship of the ring. To tell the truth, the Lord of the rings trilogy was what I actually wanted to read. But then I went back to the hobbit, and weeks later, I went back to fellowship of the ring, but then after a couple of Pages, I went back to the hobbit, and then a couple days later, I finished it. Luckily, I also had The Lord of the rings with me as well as The hobbit, so after I finished the Hobbit, I immediately began reading where I left off in the Lord of the rings. I thought it was definitely a bit darker. My favorite characters were Tom Bombadil, Gandalf the grey, and Legolas in this book. There were many differences in Tue book and movie. Most of the the stuff Boromir said in the movie at the council of Elrond were when he went all crazy and tried to take the ring from Frodo in the book. And Boromir doesn’t even die until The two towers. But in my opinion, the book was an excellent read. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Fantasy and adventure.

Why did they get rid if Han solo?

So far, you’ve watched The force awakens, and you were probably surprised and disappointed, with  mix of anger, when Han solo, one of the coolest guys in his galaxy, maybe even in the universe, was killed by his own son, Ben, or Kylo ren, the main antagonist in the film. And I don’t blame you. Han solo was one my favorite characters in star wars too.

Why did they kill Han solo? maybe since he was old, they had to retire him. Or maybe they were trying to make Kylo ren look ruthless, so they had to make one of the most beloved Characters in the movies die in the hands of Kylo ren. According to Cinema blend, J. J Abrams say, and I quote, “Long before we had this title, the idea of The Force Awakens was that this would become the evolution of not just a hero, but a villain. Star Wars had the greatest villain in cinema history. So, how you bring a new villain into that world is a very tricky thing. We knew we needed to do something *** bold. The only reason why Kylo Ren has any hope of being a worthy successor is because we lose one of the most beloved characters.” 

End quote.

(Also there was a curse word in that sentence, so I replaced the word with some ***. By the way, that was not a curse word).

Cinema Blend also says that the theme of The force awakens, was the original characters passing the torch to the next generation of good guys.

On the bright side, while Han solo did die, Carrie fisher, the actor of Princess Leia, died on Dec. 27, 2016. So now, they probably have to make the Leia character die too. So now Han solo and Princess Leia are together in movie heaven ( not really, though, but you get the idea).

The last Jedi-What I know so far.

You all probably know about the upcoming star wars movie, The last jedi. What I know about that, well, let’s find out:

  • Luke Skywalker will be in this episode. I know because Luke Skywalker is sometimes labeled as The last Jedi.download-4
  • It will be after The force awakens. You guys are probably thinking about Rogue one, but that took place before a new hope. The last Jedi will have to take place after the force awakens. I know this because the name of the next movie gives it away. Like Skywalker will follow Rey to the rebel base, and they may have to break the news out to him about Han solo.
  • Speaking if which, Princess leia. On Dec. 27, 2016, the same day I watched rogue one, Carrie fisher died. It was depressing to some star wars fans, fans of her books, and just her fans in general. And since she died, they are probably going to kill off Princess Leia, because I heard a bit about them not going to use computers to make another Princess leia. This will also be devastating for Like Skywalker, 1000000000000000000000000000000000% (maybe more). So maybe Luke skywalker is going to die in this one too, passing the torch for jedi character to Rey.

Rey is in big trouble!

You probably don’t remember this, but in The force awakens, at the end of rey’s and Kylo ren’s battle, Rey scarred Kylo ren in FACE! With a LIGHTSABER! So you know what I’m thinking? Kylo ren is going to be even more Ruthless than he was in the last movie, and he has a hate for Rey that’s bigger than his hate for the Jedi!

And that’s big.
