    Out of the Lord of the Rings trilogy I'd have to say FotR. Out of any other Tolkien novel I'd say Unfinished Tales or The Silmarillion.

    LoTR is my favorite novel, but I'd have to say that I like the stories of Beren and Luthien and Turin Turambar just as well.

    They are great stories, and I also love reading about Feanor, so the Silmarillion just takes the cake for me.

    Ahh, Feanor. That puts me in mind of a debate we had a while back about who was the better elf. Feanor or his brother Fingolfin.

    It depends what you mean by "better," Fingolfin was more valiant and noble, while Feanor was the darker one. Id vote for Feanor, he's far more interesting, and just really cool in general.

    Re: whcih is your favorite Tolkien novel

    Could you please fix the title of this thread? I twitched when I saw it. Anyways, I would have to say that my favorite (out of the ones I've read) would be The Hobbit. For some reason I like it better than Lord of the Rings.
