mine is the hobbit :devildl:
LOTR is hands down the best
I'm surprised on how many people have said the Sil. Normally everyone I know says it's so boring and they like LOTR much better. In my opinion I would have to say FOTR is my favorite. It's longer, better, and has more magic in it than the other two.
My favourite is the Silmarillion. I love the stories about the Noldor, especially about Feanor and the Kinslaying at Alqualonde. I wish Tolkien had written more about it...
I also love RotK and the Hobbit, but nothing beats the Silmarillion.
Silmarillion or the hobbit for me
Definately "the hobbit".
I would say The Hobbit simply because it was the book that got me into the Tolkien universe...I just couldn't put the thing down.
I love all of them... I have some BIG problem - I don't enjoy reading books, but I'm trying to read the LoTR in english though it's a foreing language for me. I've read The Hobbit, when I was eight or nine... It was a new but so close to me world. When I was thirteen I read the LoTR and it absorbed my life. When I was fifteen a read Silm, some pages I had to read again and again becouse while reading I was drawing a map in my mind... I'm only seventeen... I'm growing up with Tolkien... I hope I will never grow up from his world...
Mine would have to be the Silmarilion or Unfinished Tales; those two were just packed with great stories.
As far as which elf is better, Fingolfin was very badass when he fought Melkor one-on-one. And not only did he fight Melkor, he miamed him, too. That's no easy task. Therefore, my vote would go for Fingolfin (that is, if we were voting...)
I especially love Turin Turambar, a.k.a. The Black Blade of Nargathrond, a.k.a. the Mormegil. He's definitely one of my favorite characters in all the histories.
Silmarillion for sure
i would have to say the lost tales
Really? I found the lost tales somewhat boring. Couldn't quite get into the stories (I never even finished them).
One thing I didn't like was the premise that the book itself was a story about a guy being told these stories. I prefer the historical type where it just gives you the stories without so much unimportant, irrelevant side-story-telling.
oh i like learning the history of middle earth.. and some of the chapters are boring.. .but yet interesting... part 2 of the lost tales is awesome
Actually, as it happens, I think I read half of part 1 and stopped. I suppose I'll have to look into number 2 more closely.
my brother, herald to gil-galad, says is a must read for LOTR fans
For as much as I love Return of the King...I'd have to say my favorite is "The Hobbit"
Oh it is so hard decision.... I don't know.... Do I have to choose and between Lotr books? I think..... It's a really hard decision.... Return Of The King Or in Croatian Povratak Kralja. I found it most exciting and it gives me much diferent feelings....
a really hard decission, but, yea it is... no, yes, no
arrrg, The best books are part one and part three.
In part one all is new and exiting and you learn about Middle Earth and in part three, Aragorn becomes king, everything changes again and there are so many different feelings in just one book...
So yes, part three is the best. My decission
( I just have read the hobbit and the triology and the beginning of the silmarillion, so I can't judge fairly... I'll come back, when I read the other books)
Probably the Fellowship, though the parts about Melkor in the Silmarillion are great too
