I'd give the third finger on my right hand to be a hobbit. I've wanted to be a hobbit for as long as i can remember. I can't imagine that the shortness would be a problem as you wouldn't even...

Oh, i forgot to mention Chistopher Lee--outstanding! His voice is so beautiful, it's just as they described in the book. Once he starts talking it's just "yes, whatever you say" and I loved when he...

Have to go with the majority on this thread--I thought the Nazgul were terrifying, the shrieks sent shivers down my spine. I can't imagine a little kid seeing them and not having nightmares. Then...

The line about the wings stretching out from wall to wall seems to settle the question. However, it can be read as the shadow that happens to look like wings stretching out behind it. In my mind...

I'm pretty sure i read somewhere that dwarf runes are based on Norse runes. But like someone already said, there really wasn't any fantasy series that existed before Tolkien so there really was...

You're probably right, i realize 'mate' is commonly used in England to mean 'friend', however, when i read that line it seems that Sam is being likened to an animal mourning the death of it's mate,...

Homosexuality wasn't non-existant, it just wasn't talked about. Being gay isn't something that's been recently invented, it's just that people weren't as aware of it and if they were, they kept...
