Books are something that not a lot of people are interested in doing with their time anymore, and it is true that when you get involved with writing or reading a book you are definitely going to have to invest a bunch of time in to it, and that can be kind of discouraging because especially in today’s times we all want to get to the end result and see what is going to happen within a few hours and not have to spend days and even weeks at a time to just get through a story. Of course everyone under the sun is into series and television shows like Game of Thrones in which it has taken years to get to the ending of the story, but of course Game of Thrones is a series of novels that are actually very interesting and worth mentioning on the list of best novels ever, but of course we aren’t here to just talk about series of books like Game of Thrones but they deserve a mention. We are here to talk about the best novels ever written and it is definitely really hard to narrow this type of story list down to a certain list of best novels ever written, but because that is what we have promised to do we are going to continue our list and now talk about one of the best novel series ever written, which I am sure all of you know about, The Lord of the Rings.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy is something that not a lot of people really understand that well as a book series because the films have become so popular, but I can promise you that I was one of the very few people in the world who read the books before seeing the movies, and what was so interesting about this is that I was around seven and eight years old when I was reading these books. And for a young child these types of stories were absolutely fascinating and just full of energy and imagination, and it really is just fascinating how J.R.R. Tolkien was able to create an entirely different world through Middle Earth and how there are all these conflicts and diplomacy and war issues throughout this world, just like what was happening in the world in reality. Of course Lord of the Rings is all about magic and fictional characters that could never exist in reality, but that is something that is just so interesting because this is a whole different world in which anything is possible and there are wizards and elves and hobbits and goblins and orcs and all these creatures that were all in the imagination of J.R.R. Tolkien and that is absolutely breathtaking.
Of course a lot of people have considered Lord of the Rings as one of those stories that follows the Hero’s Journey paradigm created by Joseph Campbell and that is definitely something that we can consider an epoch of our modern age, and I know that a lot of people may not realize it now but Lord of the Rings is one of those stories that people are going to be talking about hundreds of years from now because this story was after all written in the early 20th century and we still think it is awesome today, and that is really special for one of the best novels ever.
