    The Book of Lost Tales definately, for the Fall of Gondolin alone!

    Seriously, I'd rather have a story about Beleg then Turin anyday!

    *runs as the angry Turin fans chase him*

    No, I never really liked Turin either, Tuor was cool though.

    Beleg and Tuor are my favorites. But Beren, Feanor, Turin, Turgon, Thingol, and Glorfindel are just amazing. And don't forget Huin! What an amazing character.

    My father and I were watching The Two Towers and he commented on how not even Peter Jackson could have come up with this story if the books weren't written.

    Does anyone know if Ted Nasmith is doing or has done an illustrated Book of Lost Tales like he did the Silmarillion?

    I also really like the Silmarillion. It's so much deeper than the other books (Rings and Hobbit) and the stakes are so much higher.

    Yea, it a really moving (as in fealing wise not literally) book! I was reading the bit where Finwe dies in the book and it feals as though its has happened! it not just a book! (Kind of hard to explain!) As with all his books he makes the books feem as though they are true, and not just fantasy!
