it was amazing

I was lucky enough to have finished most of the lord of the rings series before the movies came out, so i got to really understand the testement of how much better a book usually is than it's movie. While the Lord of the Rings Trilogy remains to be my favorite trilogy on two fronts, both movies and books, i am still finding that this trilogy is something that must be read several times in order to begin grasping some of the full concepts expressed within. J.R.R. tolkein was actually friends with one of my other favorite authors, C.S. Lewis. Together these two men seem to have grasped such a real being, such a real thing as Christ and redemption, and made it something that dances with the imagination and our sense of fantasy. While these books are fiction, there is such a realness to them that is sometimes for convinvincing than believing them to be fiction.
