The Fellowship of the Ring (LOTR part 1)

Yes, I am JUST now reading The Lord of the Rings (many thanks to Big Bear for the Christmas present!).  That being said, I am SURE I might be in the minority in what I am about to say.  The book is good, but the pace is off.  It drags at times.  The chapters tend to be very long, and it's hard to find a stopping place.  Some explanations and details go on for much longer than needed.  BUT, it is a good story, and I will be finishing the series.  My nephews had both warned me about the first book, so I hope its only UP from here. :)

Super short Summary from goodreads.com: (I'm sure we all know what the series is about though)
Frodo Baggins knew the Ringwraiths were searching for him - and the Ring of Power he bore that would enable Sauron to destroy all that was good in Middle-earth. Now it was up to Frodo and his faithful servant Sam to carry the Ring to where it could be detroyed - in the very center of Sauron's dark kingdom.
