it was amazing

I love this shiiit!!! Well I love The Lord of the Rings (I haven't read the books, I just saw the movies) but a friend told me this was the story about what happened previous to that trilogy, so I though I HAD to read it. Very easy to read... magical world, lots of imagination, scenery, adventure. Good to read at every age!

Paul  Perry The films are awesome, but you should read the books - or at the very least get hold of the huge BBC Radio adaptation, which is amazing.

And it looks like the Hobbit movie is back on! Yes!!!

Ana Sofia Ferrara What is the BBC Radio adaptation sweety? Like a book review or what?

Paul  Perry The BBC did a full cast dramatisation back in 1981 - 13 hours long, pretty faithful to the books, and starring Ian Holm (who went on to play Bilbo in the movies) as Frodo. When Peter Jackson first got the main cast together for FotR he gave them all copies to listen to.

Yes, I am a geek :D
