Read in January, 1994

I learned to read partly by following along as my father read Tolkien’s books aloud to myself and my siblings. I can understand how one might prefer the heightened drama of the sequels, but the sense of adventure, wonder, and discovery in Fellowship was my favorite part of the series. Tolkien’s prose is detailed, wandering, and at times obscure. But his imagination and storytelling are to me unparalleled. He revived a tradition of inventing fairy-stories, and inspired a genre with these books.
