The second day out of the Shire, the hobbits hear the sound of hooves on the road behind them. Frodo feels a strange aura coming from the ring as if it was calling out to someone or something. So he leads Sam and Pippin off the main road and into the trees. A rider on a large black horse, stopped and felt the presence of the ring. The rider was shrouded in a black cloak and his face cannot be seen and his armor was stained with blood . He stops near the spot where the hobbits are hiding and seems to sniff the air for a scent. Frodo feels a sudden desire to put the Ring on his finger. Over time, the rider rides off and continues his search. Sam informs Frodo that it appeared to be the same Black Rider who was questioning the Gaffer the other night.
Now if I were in the book I would try to buddy up with Frodo because he is the only one that knows what he is doing so far. Hobbits are a caring and hearty people so it would be a problem getting along the only problem it that I would end up tagging along on their quest to destroy the ring.
I will comment on Wyatt and Mariah´s blog
The Fellowship Of The Ring - Blog 2/4 Chapter 3-4
The story begins with Bilbo Baggins and his upcoming one hundred eleventh birthday party. Although Bilbo is getting old, he has not changed at all in 61 years, and many people notice and wonder about this. However, Bilbo's nephew and heir Frodo Baggins does not think this is unusual. Bilbo invites half the Shire and most importantly Gandalf the Grey his most dearest friend to his birth day.These three characters have a strong friendship that continues to endure. Gandalf and Bilbo's friendship started as an unexpected journey when Thorin Oakensheild sought to take back the Lonely Mountain from Smaug. Since then they have been very good friends, but Gandalf is suspicious about Bilbo's ring and the fact that he hasn't aged a single day.
The Fellowship Of The Ring - Blog 1/4 Prologue-Chapter 1
Since I watched The Lord Of The Rings before reading it I can't really do a prediction so in this post I will be making comparisons between the film and the book. The book first starts off with a beautiful description of the life of a hobbit including their history and their very peaceful lifestyle.
The prologue went over the mystical land of Middle Earth which was truly overwhelming when reading it and seeing it in the movie. The movie's description of the Misty Mountains leaves you in aw, but when reading the book you have a sense of freedom and creativity that allows you to picture it in an emotional level. A lot of the lore is lost in the film which makes perfect which is completely understandable since it would take an extra hour to explain every description in the book, but the film does do a great job visualizing the scenery and the depiction of the characters.
Over all they are both extraordinary and I feel like that the film gives people an option. The movie explains the story in a more fast pace and action packed way where as the book is more heart to heart and allows the reader to take different approaches in how they imagine certain conflicts.
