The Plot

The fellowship of the ring tells about a young hobbit called frodo who inherited a powerful ring that held great power. One day a wizard called gandalf came to his house. He worned him about the power of the ring and said that if the dark lord from mordor would get the ring, the whole world will be in danger. So Frodo, a peaceful hobbit from the shire, was sent on a long and dangerous quest to Mordor, where the ring could be destroyed. 8 people were sent with him: his best friends - Sam, Merry and Pippin; 2 men - Aragorn and Boromir; Gandalf the wizard; a dwarf - Gimli; and an elf - Legolas.

At the beginning, ringwraiths from Mordor where chasing them, but the elves of Rivendell managed to get rid of them using elf magic. They went east through the mines of Moria. There, Gandalf was killed by a fiery balrog, a fearsome creature that lived in the mines. They continued through the forest of Lothlorien and from there they sailed south by the great river. They were getting close to Mordor when orcs ( a kind of monsters) attacked them. Boromir was slain and Frodo decided to go to Mordor by himself. His friend Sam came with him and they went together towards Mordor, the land of evil. "The fellowship of the ring" ends here. The story continues in the next 2 books.
