Both Frodo and Sam were entrusted with the ring and this second book in the series picks up right where the last one left off. The book manages to showcase J.R. Tolkien at his very best as he manages to weave a wonderful tale, with rich descriptions and vivid imagery. This book is one of the few that literally drags you off into the world of fantasy. It makes for a riveting read as the rest of the story takes up with Frodo and Sam as they strive to complete their quest in the face of insurmountable odds.
