The Lord of the Rings
The Lord of the Rings: One Volume | J.R.R. Tolkien
One 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 by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index.J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

Weekend away in Wellington having some monstrous fun. Just been to Weta Workshop - seen props costumes models animatronics etc from LOTR, Hobbit, District 9, Avatar, Narnia, Thunderbirds, Ghost in the Shell, Alita, I am Mother and Pacific Rim. Any LOTR fans? You would love this place.

batsy Fun! That's such a fab pic 😊 2w
Centique @batsy thanks! Are you an LOTR fan Suba? 2w
batsy I read the book a loooong time ago & enjoyed the movies, but maybe not a *fan* fan, as such? More like a casual appreciator, if that's even a word? 😆 2w

Reggie Omg!!!! What a great pic! I love how your little hobbit looks like a hero with no fear. 2w
Centique @batsy yeah that‘s about the same for me now. I was a big fan when they first came out - now we‘re blessed with lots of high quality treatments of fantasy novels, lots to choose from. 2w
Centique @Reggie you‘re right - he‘s got some kind of Peter Pan cheeky demeanour going on in this photo. 😝 Both my kids have decided they want to work here now - one a model maker, one a costume designer. 🤞🤞🤞 2w
Lindy I have a similar photo in my files somewhere. Weka Workshop is very cool. 2w
Centique @Lindy I‘m glad you enjoyed it! The funny thing is it‘s Weta Workshop but it‘s on Weka Street. (Weta is an insect, weka is a bird) Confusing 🤣 2w
Lindy @Centique I could have sworn I typed Weta. 😆 2w
rohit-sawant Sounds like such a blast! Lovely picture! So cool that it inspired your kids to explore the medium. Visiting Weta Workshop is high on my list of things to do and an even bigger dream is working with them as a filmmaker. Don't know the likelihood of the latter but I'd at least love to visit someday soon! 😀 2w

Went to the movies with hubby to see Tolkien this afternoon. It basically covers his life from age 12 when his mom dies, his time at King Edwards School, Oxford & WWI, summing up his marriage and the beginnings of Lord of the Rings. We both enjoyed the story and I liked how they flashed thoughts and pieces of LOTR ideas as they came to him throughout his life.

This “collectors” edition was my pride and joy when I got it as a teen in the ‘70s. How many times have I read it cover to cover? Probably 20+, and with grubby little Gollum fingers to judge by the fore edge of the text block. I have added other editions since then but this is still a treasure.

sprainedbrain @vivastory oh, I‘m sorry to hear about both of those things. 😔 3mo
vivastory @sprainedbrain Thanks. My brother should find a new job easily & he has a decent amount in savings, so it could be much worse. He worked there for 11 years, so he's understandably really impacted. I think I'm finally out of my reading slump. How are you doing? Your new puppy is adorable BTW! 3mo
saresmoore I just came here to check in. Sorry to hear about your brother. 😕 We live in scarily uncertain times. I‘ve been reading a lot about universal basic income, lately, which is giving me a modicum of hope. I‘m also hopeful that your brother will find something even better—and soon! Did anything particular help you out of the slump? 3mo
sprainedbrain @vivastory I hope he gets something quickly, but that‘s such a scary position... and after so long working somewhere! Glad to hear you‘re out of your slump. The puppy is cute as hell, but he‘s very busy and doesn‘t seem to care when I want to sit and read for a little bit. 😂 3mo
vivastory @saresmoore Thanks. I've also been reading about the universal basic income & find it really hopeful. I'd also like to see more political discussion of rental regulations. As far as my reading slump, I think part of the problem is that I was reading multiple books. I'm pretty much a book monogamist & I've noticed that whenever I have more than one book going at a time I'm more likely to enter a reading slump. 3mo

PurpleyPumpkin Welcome to Litsy! I hope you enjoy this great bookish community. 😉👍🏽 4mo
Debdeb @PurpleyPumpkin I do already, got loads more books to read and it‘s very friendly 😊 4mo
Debdeb @readinginthedark thanks! Getting there slowly! Just glad it‘s 3 books in one or I‘ll be down on my target for the year! 4mo
readinginthedark I found The Hobbit slow-going the first time but was able to enjoy my reread on audio a bit more. I think his work needs savoring to an extent. Some authors just have so much packed into a small space! 4mo
Debdeb @readinginthedark I flew through the Hobbit a couple years ago but Lord of the Rings I‘ve restarted a few times and then couldn‘t go near it a few years as I‘d built up a ‘fear‘ (not quite the right word but it‘s early & I can‘t think of another 🙄) of the section I kept getting stuck at. He definitely packs a lot in, it feels like slow going but I‘ve started looking at page numbers and I‘m reading quicker than I thought, it‘s an odd sensation 😂 4mo
readinginthedark I can understand that! There are actually a lot of books I just set aside for several months. 😆 It's a problem, I guess. 4mo
