The poet W.H. Auden wrote a positive review in The New York Times, praising the excitement and saying “Tolkien’s invention is unflagging, and, on the primitive level of wanting to know what happens next, The Fellowship of the Ring is at least as good as The Thirty-Nine Steps. However, he noted that the light humor, in the beginning, was not Tolkien’s forte. It was also favorably reviewed by nature writer Loren Eiseley.
