Okay so I finished reading the first lord of the rings book: Fellowship of the ring.

It the synopis (sp) in the 2nd book, it says "In The fellowship of the ring, blah blah dibi dibi blah, and ended with the fellowship being scattered by an attack of a horde of orcs"

But there is no mention of any such attack in the first book. They all go looking around Amon Hen for Frodo and then he departs with Sam.

The book game in a box set so. Is it just a mistake in the synopis?

In the next book I flicked through and it has the line "Aragorn heard faint screams in the distance, and to his horror, the distinct cry or orcs".

I'm guessing they just made a mistake in the second book synopis. They didn't actually miss out on some of the story did they?

The sypnosis in mine does not say this, it was published in 2005, and revised earlier in 2004. Is yours and earlier copy, because many revisions have been made i think.

This is what I am thinking.

I would not be happy if I was missing a chapter.

So basically what you're telling me is that Australian editors are dumb stupid?

How does the last chapter end? Any mention or orcs?

And is the first mention of orcs in the 2nd book, when aragorn hears the shrieks of them from far away?

Yes.


Seriously, though. Aren't they attacked by orcs at the end of the first book? I'm pretty much 100% they did.

It's not a mistake, that actually happened. They were attacked by orcs (uruk hai if you remember the movie) at Amon Hen. They killed Boromir and took Merry and Pippin away. Now, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli are going after them while Frodo and Sam go on towards Mt. Doom alone.

Not a mistake.

yeah, the first book really mentioned the orc attack...

Kinda left you to wonder.


and the second book picks up there mentioning an orc attack so it makes the reader wonder "wtf? anyone die?".


so yeah...

The books are different to the movies.

Boromir doesn't die until the start of the 2nd book.

do you have the original or the film book ?
I read all the original ones and they followed each other perfectly,
dunno about the other versions, but it could be possible that the storyline is different in the film books.

I have a box set of the books.

I just want to know why it says in the synopis for the 2nd book about the 1st book about an orc attack, when it doens't say about any orc attack in the first book.

As said by Wikipedia:

X - The Breaking of the Fellowship - The company arrives at Parth Galen; they still face the various paths before them. The choice is given to Frodo, who thinks it over alone. Alone, that is until Boromir arrives, and attempts to convince Frodo to go towards Gondor. When that fails, he tries to take the Ring from Frodo, who puts it on to escape him. When Frodo does not arrive back at camp, and Boromir reveals what has happened, other members of the company scatter in an attempt to find the Ringbearer. Frodo and Sam go across the river and head towards Mordor alone.

So there is something wrong with the synopis.
