Book Review of The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings)

The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings)

I had to laugh at the author's own words when he addressed critics that complained that the story moved slowly, as I have to agree with those critics. The first book plods along as it inundates the reader with numerous names, places, and histories of Middle Earth. Rarely if ever have I read accounts of a fantasy world that are so detailed. Slow or no, it has certainly earned its place as a great work of fiction, and I look forward to see what befalls our heros in the next installment of the series.
