While they were sleeping, the willow tree opened up and
surrounded two of the characters. They were in quite the
predicament. This kept me reading to see what the outcome was.
Wolves, and/or the black riders throughout the story would
also attack them. An image in this book that has really stuck
in my head is at the end when Frodo was coming upon Mordor,
his destination. He was going down a river and ahead of him
were two pillars on each side of the river. The river was in
the woods, so I could see the trees, looking dark and gloomy
since the weather was bad, and he was near an evil place. I
could also see the little creatures attacking them in the
Flambeau table lamps woods. The picture on the cover
illustrates a scene perfectly from the book. The reader would
picture that same scene in his head. I immediately knew when I
read that scene what the picture on the front of the book was.
He described the horses coming out of the water, engulfing the
black riders immediately after Frodo crossed the lake. I know
who everyone is in that picture. If so much wasn't put in the
book, I wouldn't know who was who or where the scene was from.
When I've read other books, I couldn't tell what part of the
book the picture on the front was, or I could, but I had a
different picture in mind. In this story, I had the same exact
image in my head as the one on the front of the flambeau. I
liked The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien. I chose this
book because it was recommended to me. Every person I talked
to recommended that I read this story, along with the others,
which go along with this story. I haven't yet read the next
two books, but I do plan on reading them in the future. I'm
glad I took my friends' advice, and now I recommended this
book to anyone who likes adventure.
