Story Outline: The Lord of the Rings is set in the fictional realm of Middle-earth. The complex story concerns humanoid peoples known as Hobbits, Elves, Men, Dwarves, Wizards, and Orcs. It centres on the Ring of Power made by the Dark Lord Sauron. Starting from quiet beginnings in the Shire, the story ranges across Middle-earth and follows the courses of the War of the Ring. The main story is followed by six appendices that provide a wealth of historical and linguistic background material,[4] as well as an index of characters, place names, and terms of note.

Why do you recommend it: The Lord of the Rings is an epic and is considered as a literary masterpiece...JRR Tolkien has not only created a whole new amazing world but also has backed it up with maps of Middle Earth, songs, riddles, cultural backgrounds and one of the best: languages. He has used beautiful descriptions, ornate plots and side plots...and so much more!

Rating: definitely 5!



i agree 100% this is the best book to read. its amazing. its truly a book you'll remember forever.

Name: Nobody's Perfect
Author: Marlee Matlin
Genre: Non Fiction
Story Outline: This story is about a deaf girl named Megan. Megan knows sign language and she knows how to read people's lips. Megan's favorite color is purple. Megan was planning a sleepover birthday party and she called it "Megan's Positively Purple Party". Megan invited all eleven girls in her class including her best friend Cindy. A new girl comes to Megan's class and her name is Alexis. Megan wanted to invite Alexis to her sleepover birthday party because she didn't want Alexis to feel left out. Megan invited Alexis to her party but Alexis said that she can't come. Megan had a feeling that Alexis was avoiding her because Megan is deaf. Whenever Megan tried talking to Alexis she would just avoid her. For some reason Alexis was avoiding Megan but it was not because Megan is deaf. If you want to find out why Alexis is avoiding Megan then read the book and find out why.

Recommendation: I recommended this book because it is such a great story on friendship. It teaches valuable lessons on friendship and humanity.
