Matheus Rios Great review, coudn't agree more! LOTR is my all time favorite book, I think I've read it 16 times already haha I saw in an interview once that Sir Christopher Lee read the books every year since the 70's, and since then I'm trying to do do same! I tell you, everytime I read it I find new and exciting things

Lizzy Thanks, Matheus! As you know, I loved The Fellowship of the Ring and I am hoping to soon read the other two. Are they as good, in your opinion? L.

Thanks so much, Jean-Paul. I had the same fear about reading this, as I wrote above. In 2017, I want to read Tolkien's second installment, I would rather not expect too much so I'm not disappointed. I hope you're encouraged enough to try it, and please let me know how you like it. L.

Julie Lovely review, Lizzy! You made me smile when you said you were reluctant to read the book, having so enjoyed the movies, for I had the opposite experience: I so enjoyed the books that I was afraid the story would be murdered by an inexpert re-telling, but I have to say the movie only enhanced a beloved series. Somehow Jackson ended up putting my own thoughts and feelings on the silver screen. A series to enjoy, again and again, in both mediums.

I think, Julie, that both our reactions came naturally from our first contact with The Lord of the Rings, for me the movie and you the book. But I liked that I made you smile, that's something that seems to be often lacking in our lives. Thanks for reading it and liking it, it's much appreciated. I hope 2017 brings both of us more fantastic reads. L.

Cecily Nice review. Generally, I think it's better to read a book before seeing the film, but in this case, it may work just as well the other way round: the length and breadth of the story is broadly familiar, plus you get all the extras on the page like Tom Bombadil!

Thanks, Cecily. I totally agree with you on reading the book first, but in this case, I saw the movie before ever thinking about reading it. Yes, I loved Tom Bombadil! Anyhow, I thought the book had a different feel about it compared to the film, not so much action, but it's more about the characters. L.

Cecily Next stop, The Silmarillion?!

I don't know if you noticed, Cecily, but I only read the first of the trilogy. Now on to to The Two Towers! L.

Cecily Evidently I didn't notice (sorry). When you've finish these three, there's The Hobbit for light relief, but the real heft is in The Silmarilion. It's not easy going, but worth the effort.
