Describe an exciting book that you enjoy reading.
You should say:
When you read it
What kind of book it is
What it is about
And explain why you think it is exciting.
I have read many books in my life, but most of them are non-fiction, such as history and science, which are quite insightful, but I wouldn’t call them exciting. But if I had to pick a book from the fiction genre, or a novel, I would say the Lord of the Rings, written by G.R. Tolkien. I read it when I was in university, and after the movies came out, I read it again. The book is something we called high fantasy adventure, which is one of my favorite genres to read.
It is quite long, therefore it is difficult to summarize the plot. But the basic story is that there is this evil lord Sauron, he created nine rings, but there is a master ring to rule them all, but somehow, he lost the master ring to during a battle against the good guys. If he gets it back, he shall have dominion over all lives in middle earth, which is not good. Fortunately, the ring fell into the hand of a hobbit, who is our protagonist Frodo, and his mission is to take it back to Mount Doom and destroy it.
The book is quite exciting due to several reasons. Number one is that Tolkien is great writer and a great world builder. As you know, fantasy is not reality, and Lord of the Rings is set in a place called middle earth. To make this fantasy place more believable, Tolkien created everyone’s language, culture, weapons, customs and so on. The second reason is that it is ultimately an underdog story.
Frodo and his companions, although quite small in stature, became the real heroes at the end of the story despite of all the adversities they had to face. So I will definitely recommend you to read this book and also, check out the movies.
