OK, while looking up elvish words and names for my latest post on the FT Fellowship blog, I ran into the most rediculous, absurd, inaccurate and hysterical "synopsis" of the Lord of the Rings I have ever read! (Courtesy of Arwen-Undomiel.com) Enjoy!
A Brief Synopsis of The Lord of the Rings
One of the often-recurring requests on the newsgroup rec.arts.books.tolkien is from students requesting a synopsis of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic work The Lord of the Rings. The work is extremely long, and because of this many students simply can't find the time to give the work a thorough reading before giving a written report on it. In the interests of cutting down the number of requests for this material, I have written a short synopsis of the three volumes which make up the Lord of the Rings as well as an accompanying synopsis for Tolkien's posthumous book The Silmarillion.
As an added supplement, I have also listed some possible topics for term-papers and book reports for those who don't feel a desire to come up with their own.
Of course, I feel compelled to point out that a much better understanding of Tolkien's work can be achieved by reading the actual books;.... READ THE FUNNY PART HERE!!!!
(And then leave your thoughts!)
