I would change nothing. The book is so great as it is, I wouldn't mess with it! Although, it would be cool if there were other works published. It seems I just can't get enough of Tolkien's writing! ...

There are complaints of the book being very slow moving, but it's worth the wait by far! I also like to think of the books as filled with rich detail, rather than slow moving. But if you are...

I almost always come out with either Merry, Pippin, or Boromir in Personality tests. Every once in a while, one of them suprises me with something very offbeat like Tom Bombadil, but usually I can...

I don't think that Tolkien purposefully made Lord of the Rings a religious thing. He has said it himself, that there was no allegory intended. However, it was always my knowledge that Tolkien was a...

Sting Which LotR character reminds you most of yourself - and why?

I was just thinking about which LotR character reminded me most of myself. It took a lot of thought but I think I've settled on Merry. Me and my best friend remind me very much of Merry and Pippin. I...

I personally admired Sam. That kind of loyalty to a friend is not one that you come across every day. He stuck through it until the end, and he was prepared to die on this quest, so he could follow...

My favourite is Smeagol/Gollum! And I don't love to hate him, because I just can't put myself to hate him! He's not hateable, even though he does all those things. You can probably tell I'm a Smeagol...

I did hear about them leaving out the Scorning of the Shire. I do love that part of the book, and I feel it's more than essential to the story - but I can guess at why they left it out. I think that...

Maybe I've come across in the wrong way - I'm not trying to put down women. I'm a female, myself! And I love stories with strong female characters. I'm an aspiring writer, and I'm writing a story...

Don't you think that may be overdoing it too much? They might just murder it, like alot of television shows do to good movies and ideas. They should just make a The Hobbit movie. It'd be WAY better.

And I will cry, right there in the theater. If it's sad enough, I will sob. I've never been ashamed of crying, so I've always cried in public, when I felt the need. People will be looking at me like,...

I think that I will be crying through the whole thing. It's the end, which means triumph (happy tears), reunitings (happy tears, also) and of course, partings (sad tears)So I will be crying for the...

I like the book as it is. That's how I'm just going to say it. There are strong female characters, Eowyn being my favourite. I couldn't agree more. I really liked Eowyn, and felt like I could relate...

I also found the Council of Elrond to be very long and difficult to read. It just could not keep my attention for more than three sentences! The first time I read the book, I skipped it. I kind of...

I would imagine that it would even itself out, because the souls of Elves always return to Middle Earth in a body that was simlilar (if not exactly the same) as they previously had. So I would guess...

I was pretty much a sobbing wreck for a lot of LotR. I'm pretty emotional, expecially when it comes to book. I think that when Frodo "dies" it will be very sad, and I think that although Gollum is...

I like both Legolas and Haldir (books and movie) though I have to admit that at first, Haldir kind of scared me. I think the entire aura of the Lorien elves scared me, but it's strange because that...

Perhaps they did that to show that Frodo was somewhat weak in the beginning. He didn't know very much. Perhaps by the end, in RotK, you will see him stronger and more noble. It might be a way to show...

I think that the matter that no woman would want to join the Fellowship should also be taken into account. There are exceptions, like Eowyn, but don't you think that in those times, most women would...
