The Best Fantasy Epic: The Lord of the Rings

A Story to Remember

My favorite book and favorite movie happen to be the same one – the Lord of the Rings. To be honest, I had never even heard of the book before the movie was released. When the first part of the trilogy “The Fellowship of the Ring” came out in 1999, I saw a commercial on TV, showing clips of the movie. At the time, I wasn’t interested in the fantasy stuff. However, the few clips I saw looked amazingly good. I knew then that it’s a great movie. The turning point came when I saw an hour long TV Special on “The Two Towers” (the second part of the trilogy). There was a memorable scene from the film: Legolas stands on a hilltop and then flips onto the back of a horse, shooting arrows at the enemy. That moment, my heart was totally captured. I wanted to find out everything about the movie, the book and the author.

The book is over 1000 pages long, I finished reading it in three months, including the appendix. The story draws me right in. I love everything about it, from the fantasy land setting, the characters’ build up, the beautiful poems to the main theme – “Even the smallest person can change the course of the world”. The writing is exceptionally good, vivid and touching. The characters are realistic, each with distinctive voice. And the creatures of the Middle-Earth are imaginative and fascinating. It opens my eyes to a brand new world, a world that is also frighteningly similar to ours.

It’s been long since I got so excited over a book or a movie. I ended up collecting the entire “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy (both theater version and extended DVD version). And that was money well spent. It takes me ten years to comprehend the original “Star Wars” trilogy and learn to appreciate the movie’s strength and beauty. However, I understand the story of “the Lord of the Rings” instantly. It is a masterpiece that will live on for long years to come.

Like many other authors, my Fantasy Novel “The Promise” is also inspired by this great book. The difference is that “the Lord of the Rings” focuses on a theme of one little hobbit saving the world from falling into the hands of a powerful Dark Lord. My story emphasizes on an eternal love that transcends time and space. True love is a continuing emotion that affects two individuals for the rest of their lives. It does not fade with time or distance. “The Promise” explores a love relationship that is pure and ageless.
