Classic Mystery Prompt #14

This was another Classic Remarks idea. This was actually a fun question to answer. What are some classic series you love?

Lord of the Rings

I fell in love with this classic series in high school. I love the world of Middle Earth, the creatures that existed (from elves to dwarfs to hobbits, etc…..), and the friendships I saw. I am most emotionally attached to the hobbits. I love the two different quests- Bilbo’s quest in helping the dwarfs reclaim their home and Frodo’s quest in destroying the ring.

It is Frodo’s quest we spend the most time with. If it wasn’t for Sam, Frodo never would have made it. That is how loyal Sam is to Frodo. Even though Merry and Pippin are troublemakers, they still play a vital part in the fellowship and the battle of Mordor. Now, I own all the movies- from The Hobbit Trilogy and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Chronicles of Narnia

There are two series that made me a fantasy fan- Narnia is just one of them. Yes, I did start on the three films, but those soon led to reading the books. I do really love Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter- they are an amazing group of siblings. The talking animals are incredible as well- Repicheep and Aslan are the ones that automatically come to mind. There are a lot of incredible journeys and quests in the stories you find in Narnia. If you actually read the books, I recommend reading them by publication date- not chronological order.

  1. Both of these are great series! I was hoping to reread The Lord of the Rings last year, but only wound up making it through The Silmarillion before school started up again, so I’ll have to pick up with that again, now that school’s over!
