This is an excellent start to an excellent series. While Tolkien's writting tends to get a bit too wordy, it is well worth it. Tolkien creates a world that is so life like. It amazes me how much he put into Middle Earth. He created a whole history. It's easy to get lost in the world of Hobbits, Elves and Dwarves while reading this book.

I don't remember the first time I read "The Hobbit" and the series "The Lord of The Rings", but I do know I have re-read these books many times. If you are not aquainted with Middle Earth and the hobbits, you really should read this book. It is a wonderful fantasy filled with great characters, the good guys versus the bad guys. If you haven't read "The Hobbit", which occurs many years before this series takes place, and you can get your hands on it, I would recommend reading that first, as it sets up many of the events in the series. However if you can't, don't worry, there is enough explanation here to get you started. Highly recommended! P.S., if you have seen the movie versions of this series, it generally follows the same plot line with a few modifications of characters and of course, they can't put every detail in the movie version! The movies were great too!

J. R. R. Tolkein's THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy --- of which this book is the first part --- is a chronicle of the great War of the Ring, which occurred in the Third Age of Middle-earth. If you've never read these three masterpieces, you've missed a wonderful reading experience. [A]
