it was amazing

I read this for the first time 20 years ago as a college student just before the first movie came out. At the time, I found it very difficult to read. Now that I've read many more books and had 20 years more life experience, it didn't seem as intimidating, but it was every bit as good. I listened to the audiobook read by Rob Inglis and I really enjoyed the way he sings the various songs throughout the story. It was such fun to revisit Tom Bombadil and to relive the first time Frodo meets Aragorn. I was totally immersed in the world again, and though I had not forgotten the plot, many of the finer details had been lost to my memory, and it was wonderful to flesh them out again. I both enjoyed the story on its own merits and felt nostalgic for the first time I read it.

Quotes Katie Liked

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
