Andrew Yes, great story for close the year! So, with the new year (and 365 days left) you can start the Silmarillion. :)

Geez! Definitely I will read the Return of the King after this one, but I think that I need to "breath" a while until engaging into the Silmarillion, hahaha ;)

Florencia Ah, I loved these movies. I really hope that by the time I read the books, I'll be able to enjoy them as well. This is a mesmerizing review. :D We will patiently await for your thoughts on The Return of the King!

Hi, Tracey. I do appreciate the offer, really! I just am a very bad "buddy reader" since my reading schedules are irregular and sometimes I stop something if something else else came up that I just can't wait to read. But thanks for the offering.

I love the movies too, Florencia! :D I do think that Peter Jackson knew just what right changes to make on the story to make it more appealing. The reading of the books is a wonderful chance to appreciate the tale as it was originally.

Carolyn Great review Alejandro! Sam is definitely the hero in this one. Would love to find time to go back and read the books again (read them 30y ago and then again before seeing the movies).
Agree with you about the movies - Peter Jackson got them right -a true LOR fan!

Hi! Did you mean Faramir? Certainly the book Faramir is felt wiser and kinda older.

And without a doubt there are several diferences between movie and book, there are some scenes that you find in the book that it would be presented until the third movie, some scenes while not seen in the theatrical version, you got them in the extended one, also some scenes while kinda the same, there are some elements that make them kinda felt different.


message 27: by Liz (new)

Liz Websdale I love your review Alejandro. Sam was my favourite in the books of all the characters.
