The Fellowship of the Ring
The Fellowship of the Ring: Being the First Part of The Lord of the Rings | J.R.R. Tolkien
The first volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGSOne Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind themIn ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.A unique, wholly realized other world, evoked from deep in the well of Time, massively detailed, absorbingly entertaining, profound in meaning.

#FellowshipOfTolkien #LotRChapterADay

Sorry, but one of my favourite Aragorn's quotes 😍

It isn't difficult to see why Aragorn is the archetype for so much fantasy heroism. Everything is cool about him. He even has a sense of humour!
But in truth, I think Aragorn is much more complex a character than most who followed in his footsteps. Just like Gandalf.

Deifio I like it that Aragon has so many names. Like he has so many different faces to his character. And throughout the book he kind grows into his kingliness. Frodo sometimes notices it, e.g. chapter The Great River 42m
JazzFeathers @Deifio I like that too. Tolkien knew that words have power and his characters splendidly demonstrate it. 23m

I‘m spending a bit of time catching up on most of the last chapter, “Flight to the Ford,” of Book One tonight. This time I find myself thinking about just how much has happened since they left the Shire and wondering why the Black Riders did leave the travelers alone for as long as they did after Weathertop.

I also want to take a moment to check in with all our fellow readers. How is everyone‘s progress?

#FellowshipofTolkien #LotRChapterADay

teainthelibrary I've been keeping up, but haven't really had the chance to post about it! I could be wrong but I think they left them alone, because they were biding their time waiting for Frodo to turn into shadow? I wonder if anyone else has some thoughts! 14h
JazzFeathers I read 'Strier' yesterday on the way home. I will have a couple of days off at the beginning of next week, so l hope l'll have a chance to catch up. 14h
Daisey @teainthelibrary It does mention that about assuming he will succumb quickly. Yet, it also just felt like a long time this read through for them to leave him be without even their presence being felt. 9h

Chapter 12: Flight to the Ford

They got a little lost on the journey from Weathertop to Rivendell. They came across the old trolls who couldn‘t decide how to cook 13 dwarves and one hobbit. On the way to the Ford they meet up with Glorfindel, who helps the weary travelers.
The Black Riders are momentarily defeated at the Ford and everyone finishes the journey to Rivendell.

Chapter 11: A Knife in the Dark

This chapter picks up with Strider and the Hobbits leaving Bree and ends on Weathertop with Frodo getting stabbed. I enjoyed story time around the fire. I never really paid much attention to the song about Beren and Lúthien. I‘m glad I did this time.

Never noticed how much foreshadowing there is in this chapter.

And l have to admit, l'd love to read a horror story written by Tolkien 😆

Literary_Siren A horror story would be amazing!! 3d
Bookwomble @Literary_Siren The Children of Húrin and its originator, The Story of Kullervo, are both pretty horrific I think. 3d
Literary_Siren @Bookwomble I‘ll have to read them. I own both. 3d

Absolutely loved the entire episode of Tom Bombadil this time.
I don't know whether it's because of our reading of the History of the Lord of the Rings (which was illuminati gli, for me), but l'm seeing this episode in an entirely new light.

It is such a symbolic episode and with so many foreshadowing. Loved its dreamy quality. And such beautiful prose.

Loved it. Just loved it.

Daisey I felt like I got more from this chapter as well after the additional reading. It made me appreciate the depth of Tom‘s character more. 3d
JazzFeathers @Daisey l had a discussion with some friends about this read of Tom Bombadil's episode. I got a lot from it this time around, while last time we read it, two years ago, l had a feeling l was missing out a lot. A lot of readers say there's no way to explain Tom. I don't think so, now. I rather think that Tom's is such a symbolic episode that it's not easy to decode it. 2d

Pure poetry.
The entire episode of Tom Bombadil is taking my breath away. Such beautiful prose and imagery.

And something has occured to me. This is definitely an episode of passage. The Hobbit leave the Shire and enter the outside world.
Do you think all the references to water, rain, sleep, dreams, and the ending with the tombs are symbols of death and rebearth?

Literary_Siren Could be. 3d
dodgygothbint I've always loved this bit of the book, and was disappointed that they left it out of the films. I think it's a really important bridge, between the security and comfort of The Shire and the trials they face in the rest of the journey. It's almost a coming of age, and does involve change from the hobbits they were to the hobbits they become, so maybe there is indeed some allusion to transition and rebirth... Also the barrow wights are super scary! 3d
JazzFeathers @dodgygothbint More than a coming of age, l'd say it is an awakening. And as such l agree it is a passage. I felt these thems of passage and awakening very strongly this time. All the three chapters are very dream-like (which l loved), but yes, the Barrow-Down is absolutely creepy 😍 3d

Ooooohhhh the barrow-downs are so creepy and I love it! I‘m not sure how the barrow-wight captured all the hobbits but it‘s still an interesting part of their adventure.

Also, Tom said something to the hobbits that made me wonder if he and Strider are acquainted.

I‘m thinking about transitions as I read this next chapter. The hobbits have now transitioned into a new part of their journey - they have left the Shire and entered the realm of the Big People, while also making a physical transition as they enter through the gate to Bree.

We‘re coming up on some of my favorite parts of this book; I‘m ready for my fictional man love to make his appearance! 😍

I‘m enjoying some cozy reading time with the pets and a hot cup of tea on this wintry evening. Tom Bombadil is an enigmatic character that seems to often elicit conflicting opinions from readers. Even after several rereads and other texts, I‘m still intrigued and curious about this character every time I meet him.

#FellowshipofTolkien #LotRChapterADay

Deifio The first time I read LotR I didn't like Bombadil. Especially because of his annoying songs. With this reread I kinda liked him. His songs reminded me of the silly songs my kids make up for themselves 7d
dodgygothbint I really like the Tom Bombadil section of the story, and was very sad that they left it out of the film adaptation. I think it's a good midway scene between the comfort and almost childish content of The Shire and the increasing hardships and terror of the latter parts of their journey. 6d
teainthelibrary I agree! I feel like I pick up different things each time I read it - the songs have definitely grown in me too 🙂 6d
Daisey @Deifio @dodgygothbint @teainthelibrary This section has never been one of my favorites, but I appreciate it more now, especially the old history aspect. Every time I reread I seem to enjoy the songs and poetry more than previously. 6d

Chapter 7: In the House of Tom Bombadil

I‘m picking up more of the story I had forgotten or hadn‘t processed. Like how Frodo dreamt about Gandalf‘s escape from Isengard! And how the One Ring doesn‘t affect Tom. I‘m loving this one #ChapterADay thing, I feel I‘m absorbing more of the story.

#FellowshipOfTolkien #LotRChapterADay - A Conspiracy Unmasked

As I read today‘s chapter, I put on the LOTR soundtrack in the background & it got me thinking about how the books were adapted for the screen.

It‘s chapters like this one (& other ones to come 🙃) which I would have loved to have seen in the films. I want to see Buckland and get creeped out by the Black Riders crawling and sniffing. I always forget how much is left out!

Kenyazero I was thinking about that too. It's a shame they have to make so many changes to adapt something this long to the screen. So many great scenes that would have been fun to watch! 1w

I loved this chapter - it expertly weaves together the tension & fear caused by the Black Riders with the meandering beauty of the Shire & the ethereal mysticism of the Elves. You feel both at home as you explore the Shire, but also nervous about every sound & shadow.

Loved the first chapter. There is everything a reader might want. Like le characters. Magic. Mystery. A mysterious disappearance. And so many questions.

Loved the words games.

It sounds perfect as it is and it's almost unbelievable how many times Tolkien reworked it.
