It takes place on Middle Earth, around the year 1450 there. The characters consist of many different things. Like, hobbits, elves, wizards, orcs, and men. The story is about a hobbit, Frodo Baggins, who’s father, Bilbo Baggins, finds a ring in The Hobbit. The special thing about this ring, is it has power to make the person who wears it invisible. There were also 9 other rings like this one, but this ring was the “One”. In, The Fellowship of the Ring, the evil king Sauron comes back. With this ring, he can become very powerful. He sends 9 black riders out to find the ring. Frodo needs to go to Mount Doom to destroy the ring,

but he can’t do it by himself. The Counsel sends 7 with him. They have to go South, but on their way there, they get attacked by the Orcs, and they are all scattered. Sam, and his master, Frodo separate from the group, and Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas. The other 4, one of them which is Borimir, is killed by the Orcs trying to protect Frodo and Sam. Gandalf was killed in The Abyss, when he fell in. The other 2 are hobbits, Merry and Pippin. That was all in The Fellowship of the Ring, and there is a lot more in The Two Towers. In the first book of The Two Towers, The story is on Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas. They find Borimir half-dead, and he says the Orcs took the two hobbits, Merry and Pippin. The 3 try to catch up with the Orcs, but the Orcs are fast on foot, and they can’t

catch up with them. After about 7 days of trying to catch up with the Orcs, the men of Rohan, people that ride on horseback come to the 3. The men of Rohan tell them that they killed all the orcs that had Merry and Pippin. They just happened to lose 7 men and 4 horses, leaving 3 empty horses. Then the story switches to Merry and Pippin, when they first get captured. The captain of the Orcs, Ugl?k keeps them alive, because their boss Sauron told them of the hobbits, and one of them has the ring. They have to run really hard a long time, until the day the Men of Rohan attack. They got lucky and escaped without getting killed. They head East, into the forest. They were told not to go in there, but they do anyway. While they are resting in the forest a huge thing comes up to them. It

looked like a half man half goblin, but it was atleast 14 feet tall and had 7 toes on each foot. They learn that these things are called Ents, the elves brought trees to life, and this is what they got. They go around with the Ent, Treeabeard. He is the eldest of the Ents, so he is basically the master of the Ents. All the Ents go to a metting at Crick Hollow. They are talking about going to Isengard, the tower in which Sauruman the White is. The story then goes back to Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas. After the people of Rohan give them their horses, they set off on their own. That night, when they are sleeping, Sauruman takes their horses. The next day, they stop to rest, then they see a man that looks almost exactly like Sauruman, but it isn’t. It’s Gandalf, who use to be

Gandalf the Grey, but is now Gandalf the White. I don’t know how he survived falling down the Abyss, but he survived. They set off to Rohan. When they get there, Gandalf summons Theoden, the kind of Rohan to a strong man. His guard, Wormtoungue had been making him feel old and weak. Gandalf got him to be himself again, and they all set off to Isengard. On the way there, they take refuge at Helm’s Deep, because they got attacked by tons of Orc/humans. They withstand all of them, but there were many deaths. They continue on to Isengard. They finally get there, and what do they find, but the battle has already been won, by the Ents. The only thing left standing is Octun, the tower which Sauruman is in. The Ents couldn’t destroy it because it has some magic on it. Gandalf talks
