The inspiration for the upcoming original series on Prime Video, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
The second part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
The Fellowship is scattered. Some prepare for war against the Dark Lord. Some fight against the treachery of the corrupt wizard Saruman. Only Frodo and Sam are left to take the accursed Ring to be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom.
Mount Doom lies in the very heart of the Dark Lord’s realm. Their only guide on the perilous journey is Gollum, a deceitful and obsessive creature who once possessed the Ring and longs to wield its power once again.
As dark forces assemble, the fate of Middle-earth rests with two lonely hobbits – but is Gollum leading them to their deaths?
‘An extraordinary book. It deals with a stupendous theme. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent, in a region where everything is invented, forest, moor, river, wilderness, town and the races which inhabit them.’
‘Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century.’
‘The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and those who are going to read them.’
‘A story magnificently told, with every kind of colour and movement and greatness.’
‘Masterpiece? Oh yes, I’ve no doubt about that.’
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father’s death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.
