LOTR. No question. The Hobbit was nice but I prefer LOTR. Haven't read any other Tolkein novels. xD
I'll say LOTR, tho I haven't read the books in ages. Next would be The Hobbit.
@ Raff...ok, I know I'm going to sound like a total tard but I have yet to finish the Sil. For some reason I start it then put it down for a day then when I go back to it I'm lost. I think it's just too much information for me! Haha, or maybe it's just the older I get the more senior moments I have!
you said it m8...The sill.
Same for me, it is brilliant in its historical scope and vision despite appearing more like a history book than a novel.
Definetly "The Lord of the Rings", best book ever written and ever to be written.
Thank you John Ronald Reuel Tolkien!!!
"Leaf by Niggle"comes in second place.
Nlon noyer annan.
The Hobbit or the Children of Hurin (Turin Turambar) or whatever its called
The trilogy is great, but I think I like The Hobbit a bit better.
I've got the Children of Hùrin, but I haven't read it yet. I will soon, though.
The Silmarillion is a good book also, but I read it when I was twelve, so it wasn't that easy. I'll re-read it soon. The Hobbit is awesome, it's easy to read but has a good storyline. I hope the film will be as good as the book.
When I read 'Silmarilion' for the first time, I was child too. It was very difficult to read, however (in my opinion) 'Silmarillion' is one of the best book ever written
First section of Simarillion. Afterwards it gets politicky and such, but the mythology and creation story was what made me appreciate the depths to which Tolkein thought out his world.
Mine would be The Fellowship of the Ring and The Children of Hurin. I am half way throught the Children of Hurin but I still find it an amazing and fascinating tale from the best author that has ever lived!
The Hobbit for sure.
I really quite like "Unfinished Tales" now that I've been reading it, as it compliments all his books, filling in the gaps, so I would have to link that to all the others as well.
The Silmarillion. There is no equal.
Definitely, The Silmarillion. It was the work of Professor's life, and it became a real epos...seems to be equal to the ancient legends...The whole story from the very beginning.
Silmarillion is too good, LOTR trilogy Return of the king, FOTR and then two towers, then hobbit, and then other books like adventures of Tom Bombadil I enjoyed because I love the songs and poems.
No question, it is the Silmarillion. As part story book of it, also "The Lays of Beleriand".
