***Warning: Spoilers Ahead!***

SUMMARY: This fantasy novel is the first in the famous and popular The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It describes the beginning of the journey of Frodo and his companions. It is first set in the Shire, from which Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin set out with the ring Bilbo stole from Gollum and willed to Frodo. The four hobbits eventually meet Aragorn, who leads them to Rivendale. At Rivendale, it is decided that the ring must be destroyed, and Frodo is appointed to be the ring-bearer. The four hobbits, Gimli, Gandalf, Aragorn, Boromir, and Legolas form the fellowship meant to carry the ring to Mordor. Through the course of the novel, Gandalf is lost while fighting the balrog and Boromir is slain by orcs while protecting Pippin and Merry. The fellowship is broken up when Frodo, followed by Sam, leaves for Mordor and Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas set out in search of Merry and Pippin.
