After a long time I have finally bought the books of Lord of the Rings. In this post I intend to show the differences between the book(s) and the movies. Regardless of any shown differences, the movies are and remain my most beloved of all and are a very good adaptation of the books.

To clear up terminology, what we call books is called volumes in Lord of the Rings. The first volume entitled “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” is internally consisting of two books. The same is true for the second and third volumes that correspond with the movies.

That said, let’s start with the differences of (for now) the first two volumes/movies.
