The Fellowship is scattered. Some are bracing hopelessly for war against the ancient evil of Sauron. Some are contending with the treachery of the wizard Saruman. Only Frodo and Sam are left to take the accursed One Ring, ruler of all the Rings of Power, to be destroyed in Mordor, the dark realm where Sauron is supreme. Their guide is Gollum, deceitful and lust-filled, slave to the corruption of the Ring.

Various reproachful names for himself came to Sam's mind, drawn from the Gaffer's (father) large parental word-hoard.
SummaryAdd a Summary
In the second part of Lord of the Rings, Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas arrive at Rohan in the midst of their search for missing Merry and Pippin and meet an old friend. Meanwhile, the two hobbits find themselves kidnapped by the Uruk-hai to be taken to Saruman, but escape into the feared Fangorn Forest, where they meet an unlikely friend. Frodo and Sam continue their quest to destroy the Ring, but meeting an enemy along the way (who proves quite helpful) may not have been a chance.
