Lord of the Rings:
the Fellowship of the Ring
J.R.R. Tolkien published the Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring in 1954. He made it as a sequel to the book The Hobbit: There and Back Again. In the book, the main character is Frodo Baggins, who is the nephew of Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit.
In 2001, director Peter Jackson directed a movie version of J.R.R. Tolkien's novel. The movie was largely successful, making over 300 million dollars and was nominated for 11 Oscars, and winning 4 of them. Though the film cut out most of the material from the book, most agree that it stayed true to it's source material.
