Summary: Frodo Baggins is told to take Sauron's ring to Mount Doom in Mordor. On the way he will  have many adventures involving  everything from trolls to the Nazgul. He will gather a fellowship on the way, pardon the pun. His ultimate goal is to destroy the ring in the fires of Mount Doom before Sauron can enslave all the free peeps of Middle Earth -- mwaaaahaaaahahahaha --  very happy and fluffy. It is divided into two books, part one and two.
Strengths and Weaknesses: One strength is fully developed  cultures and worlds. It's one of the most in-depth fantasy books ever. One weakness is sort of of a redundant theme like Frodo being captured a lot of times but by different people, so I guess it's not too bad. Another strength is that it doesn't seem like it drags on and on like some books.  One of my favorite parts is the Mines of Moria because there is a big fight with a Balrog.
Rating/appropriateness: I would give it 4/5 chocolate bars.  It's pretty appropriate except for violence/ orcs getting their heads cut off. Overall it was a very good book.
Cover Thoughts:  I like it since it doesn't give away too much and it's bright and colorful.
