I'm reading 'The Hobbit' right now. A friend of mine let me barrow it. She's a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings. She's seen it 7 times the last time I checked. It's a really good movie.

Genna, you know I love the books and I have read them and you still search someone to talk to about them!

Hey, and I love The Hobbit, too, for the guy or girl, who said they read it. I'm the total hobbit fan - the greatest creatures.

What do you want to know? I'm always here! :)

Btw, great that you stopped by! ;)

Yep, The Silmarillion, the one about Elvish history. Hm, a lot of Elvish heroes in it. Well, also dwarves and humans, yes. It's pretty interestin, but hard to read, because it's unfinished, I mean this is the rough version of the book. You know that, right? God, it's really great for people who are interested in Elvish history.

Then I guess The Hobbit is for dorks, cause I seem like the only one to like them. :D Well, i don't claim they are the best race, just the most interesting to me!

Hmmm...I will have to read The Silmarillion. I have only read The Hobbit, FotR, and TTT as I plan them so that I will finish the book on the day the movie comes out. I don't know why, but it seems like I can remember more things from the book that way. :shrug:

Hm, how did you read FotR and TTT without ROTK? They're in one book... :thinking: ...

And I really do not recommend The Silmarillion to be read before LOTR. Although it's incomplete at some points... all those Elvish heroes, you know princes, are so inspiring! Amazing. After that humans and hobbits may not look that heroic.. btu they're still my pick over Elves! :)

:blink: I love LOTR. The are a very cool (set) books. It did make me sad that in the books Legolas is very clever and in the movie he hardly ever talks. I think that they left out a whole bunch of stuff. Mabye they should have done 2 movies for one book. I knowthat inso doing it would be a more expensive project, but alot of important things were left out. I mean it was a great movie, the effects were so cool (how they made them was even cooler, see the extra stuffin the extended version of LOTR) and the senery was excellent. Ok I kinda got off track there, yeah I really Like the books.

yeah, cuz in the books, he's all, happy, and singing, and in the movie hes like, on depressants for something. but it was better in TTT when he was joking with gimli at helms deep. that was closer to book legolas.

but aboutthe scenery, i loved it too. i would kill to go to NZ. (aka kiwi-a-gogo land, thanks whoever said that, i will always love that word now.)

in my view, the silmarillion is not nessecary for reading lotr. i first recommend the hobbit, just for backround, plus it's pretty good. and then, read the actual books. i think of the 2nd as the mot powerful.

i tried reading the silmarillion, but it was just history and a bore. but if you want to know everything, read it.

lotsoflove
