J.R.R. Tolkien is a master world builder, and he’s famous for sending his characters trekking back and forth across all of it. If you’ve ever had trouble keeping track of where all of the hobbits are in Tolkien’s famous novels The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, or The Return of the Kings, we have a solution for you: this amazing infographic from the team over at Quirk Books.
The infographic centers around the hobbits, including main characters Bilbo and Frodo as well as their buddies Samwise Gamgee, Merry, and Pippin. The hobbits are tracked across all four books, and all of the important locations and pivotal plot points are accounted for. Of course, the hobbits aren’t the only characters who are featured in the image: Gandalf, Aragorn, and the rest of the Fellowship make appearances as well. Check out the full infographic below!
The graphic was made by the Quirk Books team in honor of last month’s Hobbit Day, but it’s relevant year-round for fans of Tolkien’s famous series. The image does an awesome job of breaking J.R.R. Tolkien’s sprawling epic into a visual form that’s really easy to understand!
