This was the first thing that came to my mind when I learned about this week’s theme. I read this in high school, while impatiently waiting for the fifth Harry Potter book. I really had a hard time reading the whole series, probably because I am so used of reading stories that are not as descriptive as this. But looking back, it was just right for Tolkien to do so. It was most likely the reason why Peter Jackson’s films were so vivid and loyal to the books. Ultimately, it shows how such a tiny thing like a ring can possess immense power, and how tiny people, the hobbits, overcame every struggle. I don’t know if I will experience the same difficulty that I did when I first read it, but this should be in my rereading list for me to find out.
