(that is where the story of the ring starts).
The Hobbit, but really, you should read the silmarillion. It explains the whole Lord of the Rings Lore. but the hobbit, then the lord of the rings; Although, not all of the films for the Hobbit have come out
The Hobbit should be read before. The Silmarillion could be read before or after, it doesn't matter. I read it after.

It is basically about Bilbo Baggins,(Frodos uncle) and how he foes on a quest to kill the dragon with the dwarves and how he ends up finding the "ring". if you are going to read the lord of the rings you have to read the hobbit first.
It will depend on the girl. It certainly is not a bad book for girls to read. Some may not like all the adventure and fighting, but the descriptions and prose are very good.I recently read the hobbit. I am a teenager. The hbbit and the lord of the rings are similar. the lord of the rings is the series after the hobbit. I enjoyed the book very much. It is good for girls who like drama,adventure, long books. Not good for those who hate reading. Good Luck and enjoy
'The Hobbit' of course!
The order in which the Lord of the Rings trilogy was published (in 1954 and 1955), and should be read is:The Fellowship of the RingThe Two TowersThe Return of the KingThe trilogy was begun as a sequel to Tolkien's 1937 children's fantasy, The Hobbit.
The Silmarillion talks about the history of the elves in the early ages. (it's like the book of elves, elvish book of history)
First of all, The Lord of the Rings is not a "series," but rather one book published in three volumes. To call it a 'trilogy' is erroneous, though the story as a whole is divided into six "books." With that out of the way, it is best to start with The Fellowship of the Ring, as the rest of the story makes very little sense without it.On a side note, it is a good idea, though not strictly necessary, to read The Hobbit, the prequel to The Lord of the Rings first.
No. Elves are mythological creatures. They comes from German mythology and were popularized by J.R.R. Tolkienbooks ("Lord of the Rings", "Hobbit" and "Silmarillion").
The Hobbit provides a lot of good background about the world, and Bilbo, and Gandalf, and some about the overall situation in Middle Earth. However, you don't have to read it first to be able to follow the story in the six books of "The Lord of the Rings". It might help understand it more. I read The Fellowship of the Ring before I even knew that there even was another book called The Hobbit. In The Return of the King, it might help understand about the eagles. The Hobbit occurs about 50 years before the events of The Lord of the Rings. Finally, if you wish to understand the full historical context and setting as well as the hierarchy of the supernatural and natural powers that influence events in Middle Earth, read "The Silmarillion". It is the most difficult to read and understand though, so definitely should not be read before the others.
The Lord of the Rings books can be read by an intelligent 12 year old.
Not in the Lord of the Rings series. Read Tolkien's notes after to find out what happens after the Return of the King.
He used to read greek and norse mythology when he was a teenager. His first book he ever read for fun was Lord of the Rings
Giant spiders, reportedly descended from Ungoliant, and relations of Shelob, the great spider in The Lord of the Rings. The Dwarves and Bilbo ran into them when they strayed off the forest road against the advice of Gandalf. The original account can be read in Chapter 8 of The Hobbit "Flies and Spiders." Or you can read a summary of the chapter at the related link.
It isn't found in that book. You have to read the Silmarillion if you want to read about them.
You have to read The Lord of The Rings. Everything that happens to him happens in that book.
READ THE MANUAL DUMBBUM
Legally, no where. The Lord of the Rings and Tolkien's other books have not been officially released in electronic versions.
Wuthering Heights Lord of the Rings Alice in Wonderland Coraline
Many people who've watched the movies and read the books.
You might try something like War and Peace or Lord of the Rings.
The Hobbit along with the Lord of the Rings or The Edge Chronicles (that one is aimed more at young teen readers but it's still very good).
Lord of the Rings is not related to anything near God or even God.Lord of the Rings is basically about an evil "lord" who crafted 3 Rings for eleven kings, 7 rings for dwarf lords, 9 for the men, and One for himself. The "One Ring" had the power to "rule them all" the power to "find them all" and to "bring them all" within the land of Mordor (the place where it was crafted.)The book explains the adventures of Frodo and the fellowship (his partners) to destroy the ring, so that the dark lord can't use it for bad.You HAVE to read it."The English Speaking world is divided in two worlds; The One's who have read The Lord of The Rings and the ones who are going to read it." The Daily MailIt depends on the book. Lord of the Rings is fine, but some books are against God. Be careful about what magic books you are reading. Certain 'magic' is against God.
