The BBC Big Read says it's the #1 novel ever, beating out the likes of Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and Harry Potter. Who am I to argue, it certainly was my first and favorite in the realm of fantasy literature. As an adult I've come to appreciate the traditional novel's more, from writers like the Bronte's, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and others. But the mysterious and magical land and inhabitants of Middle Earth will always have a welcome spot in my heart and mind.

A. Dawes Loved it too.


message 4: by James (new)

James Loved it, too. So hard to say "the best novel ever" when it comes to selecting just one. I love books for different reasons, and sometimes it's best in this genre, or best in this time period...
