ANYWAY. So, last time, I talked about The Hobbit. This time around, it's time to talk about the first "book" of the Lord of the Rings "trilogy" proper: The Fellowship of the Ring.
(Mildly interesting factoid: the assumption that LOTR is a trilogy is actually incorrect. Tolkien wrote it all as one book, but his editor/some person with executive power insisted on publishing it into three volumes, because otherwise the book would have been too big, and supposedly there were paper shortages. They also therefore got into quite a few arguments over the titles of each volume; Tolkien was admantly against naming the third book "The Return of the King" because he (correctly, in my opinion) thought it was a huge spoiler for the book, but he was overruled.)
( "Well, that rules you out, Pip." )
