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.

I have a whole theory about men‘s hair in middle earth. It makes them way more attractive.

I mean, you see the actors in other films with shorter hair and I don‘t know about you *but* I‘ve been underwhelmed.

I once watched an entire film without realising that Viggo/Aragon was in it 😯😦basically my face when the credits ran

julesG 😂😂😂 2w
julesG I often think something along "wait, I know this face, but where from? Another film? Supermarket?" then I keep thinking about where and stop paying attention to the film. Also, films in Germany hardly ever run in the original version. So we get dubbed versions. It often happens that one speaker is used for different actors. Say you are watching a film with Nicholas Cage, but the German voice is that of Edward Norton. ? 2w
julesG ...because the inflection the speaker uses is not his usual Nic Cage inflection. Worst, Kingsley Shacklebolt has a tame "white-washed" voice, rather than that deep baritone. And no accents whatsoever... 2w

DGRachel Oh, and on the subject of actors and hair, I‘ve had a crush on Richard Armitage ever since I saw him in the BBC TV show, Robin Hood. I don‘t care what his hair looks like, I find him swoony in all his rolls (it‘s totally the voice, though). Lee Pace and Viggo, though, I‘m inclined to agree with you. Other rolls I‘ve seen them in aren‘t nearly as 🔥🔥. 🤣🤣 2w
julesG @DGRachel Have to watch dubbed films with the kids. The Hobbit hurt a lot. Agree on the voice of Armitage. Lee Pace has a quite recognisable voice, too. 2w
Susanita I noticed this phenomenon when I was at the mall between shows at Medieval Times and saw some of the actors wandering around outside. Something about the combination of long hair and period costume...
BTW, Lee Pace could also have a separate line of eyebrow care products.
2w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @julesG, that sounds awful! The only dubbed films I‘ve seen are the studio ghilbi one 😅 and an occasional Jackie Chan one (which were always slightly off kilter) 2w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @DGRachel, I‘d forgotten about that version of Robin Hood! He was the Sheriff?! I loved him as Harry the Accountant in the last season of the Vicar of Dibley. 2w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Susanita, Lee Pace could do a lot of things! Revive the show pushing up daisies would be my preference! 2w
Bookzombie I loved Pushing Up Daisies and I thought Lee Pace was very attractive in it. There is something about those dang eyebrows! Also, love in Armitage in The Vicar of Dibley! 2w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Bookzombie, but then you add in the long hair, the crown and the battle moose and 😍🤩 2w

2019 has been the year I finally got to reread my favorite book series starting with Harry Potter and now LOTR. I loved this book even more the second time! Sam is still my favorite hobbit. I just love his wisdom and loyalty. I definitely feel that LOTR has the superior movie adaption. All the book changes made total sense and didn‘t rob key points from the story like HP movies did in the end. Can‘t wait to start the next one❤️

Texreader Loved reading your take on LOTR. I haven‘t read it all but my son has, and my daughter the first book and they both have shared their love of the book with me. And we all love, love, love the LOTR and Hobbit movies. ❤️❤️❤️ 3w

Saw this on Facebook this morning and I got a good chuckle out of it. The relationship between these two was/is one of my favorite things about this series and Orlando Bloom & John Rhys-Davies (aka 'The Professor', he will always be the Professor in my eyes) really helped bring them to life.

Okay. So about a few months ago I finished The Fellowship of the Ring, and I was quite surprised Gandalf died! As much as I've heard about this character and knowing there would be two more parts, I wasn't expecting that at all.
Does he come back to life? You can tell me, I won't be upset lol.

#poetrymatters #king @TheSpineView

Yes, of course I knew this was by Tolkien 😳

All that is gold does not glitter
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

TheSpineView I didn't think of that one! Excellent! 🧡🧡🧡 2mo
