Tolkien's trilogy are some of the most celebrated books in the young generation. In it peace-loving hobbit Frodo Baggins and his gardener Samwise Gamgee set off on an epic quest to destroy the Ring of Power and with it the dark lord Sauron. Tolkien used much inspiration from Norse and Scandinavian mythology, for example ,the wandering wizard Gandalf bears much resemblance to Odin [nicknamed 'The Wanderer'] and Scandinavian giants also turn to stone at dawn.
