The Fellowship of the Ring

Bilbo's birthday trick

Frodo must destroy the Ring

The Fellowship breaks.


The Two Towers

Rohan and Helm's Deep

Gollum/Smeagol's crisis

The Trees save themselves.


The Return of the King

Middle-Earth at war

Minas Morgol to Mt Doom

Devestation heals


The Hobbit

Dwarves need a burglar

Goblins, spiders and dragon

Five armies battle.

Am I aware of how very little this explains? Yes. Do I consider that my problem to fix? No.

In my defence, seventeen syllables is not a whole lot of room to convey the depth and meaning of one of the Grandfather of Fantasy's life's work.

I guess you'll just have to go and read the book (or watch the movies) for yourself...

Just avoid The Rings Of Power; they're nothing like the source material...

    I don't think your descriptions are too sparse. In my opinion, that's part of the fun of this challenge. Come to think of it, I don't read reviews of a book or movie until after I've read or watched it, because many of them give away too much. These books are among my favorites. Well done!

    Wow! An epic in a one-pager. Only a true fan could have distilled all to this!

    Excellent Haiku poem 👍

  • Nicely done. Just one editorial note. The line, "Gollum/Smeagol's crisis" only has six syllables instead of seven.
