The Fellowship o' the Ring

(take from an Amazon.com review of the 'Fellowship of the Rings') Maybe I've been staring at these mysql tables too long today but I found this really funny. I don't think you'd even need to read the book after this review.

The Fellowship of the Ring, June 5, 2002
Reviewer: NAME OMITTED(Cerritos, CA USA)
This is the first of the three books in the series The Lord of the Rings. In the beginning, a hobbit called Bilbo Baggins celebrates 110th birthday. He then disappears to go live with the Elves in a place called Rivendell, and leaves everything to his nephew, Frodo Baggins, including a mysterious and magical ring that he found long time ago (see the book The Hobbit). Frodo is advised by Gandalf to go to Rivendell, and to take the ring, and to never wear it. Gandalf fears that it might be the Ring of Power (the ring that belongs to the evil lord Sauron), so he goes to Rivendell where a council is met. Frodo agrees to take the ring to Mount Doom with the help of others (Mt. Doom is the very center of Sauron's empire, and it is the only place where the ring can be destroyed) this group form the Fellowship. As they go, they meet various encounters, and in the end of the book, Sauron's army fights the group and steals some of the Hobbits.
I chose to read this book because I heard it was very popular. Also, I heard that the book was a fantasy book tied in with magic, battles, and a great quest. I liked reading it and I knew what was happening because I read the book The Hobbit. Then I decided to read the prologue. I also liked to read the book because it was full of adventure and danger.
My favorite part was when Gandalf faced off the monster in the shadow of the mines of Moria. It started when the Fellowship began to make their way to Isengard. Gandalf decided to lead the group into a climb through the mountains. They noticed a large group of crows flying their way. Figuring that it was some of Sauron's spies, they tried to go through the ice caps of other mountains. Then Saruman the wizard tried to stop them. So they had no choice but to go through the mines of Moria where a monster lives. This is a fire-demon monster that lives. Gandalf tried to fight the monster but Gandalf and the monster fell and the Fellowship thought Gandalf died.

"What you had there is what we refer to as a focused non-terminal repeating phantasm or a Class 5 full-roaming vapor."

    It is missing "I would recommend this book to anyone who likes action, adventure, or medieval fantasy stories."
