Having read this book many year's ago and lost the original copy. I thought it was time to remind myself of the plot. As is the case for me it was there and back again again. Most enjoyable as I had forgotten a lot of the plot Would recommend this book to just about anyone if you are thinking of reading Lord of The Rings Please read this first as it gives you a good idea of where it all began. I think there is enough twists to keep everyone guessing till near the end how the story pans out.
