Tom Bombadil Can't Post

Would it have really slowed down the flow of film one?

It seems a shame one of the iconic characters of the books was completely overlooked... also the Barrow wights.

He/they didn't even make it into the EE!!!

Apologies if this has been discussed before, but I am new and can't find a thread on this subject! Smile

                            Personally I think Treebeard is far superior to Bombadil. Beutlin Send a private message to Beutlin Oct 30 2012, 4:41pm

                                    Yes, Tolkien was not a professional writer. Beutlin Send a private message to Beutlin Oct 31 2012, 2:20am
                                He may not have been a professional modern novelist Shelob'sAppetite Send a private message to Shelob'sAppetite Oct 31 2012, 4:04am

                                        It is fine for you to dislike it Shelob'sAppetite Send a private message to Shelob'sAppetite Oct 31 2012, 3:45pm
                                            The basic concept behind Tolkien's use of language in the LOTR is certainly impressive. Beutlin Send a private message to Beutlin Oct 31 2012, 5:35pm

                                                        One does not have to read a book written by a "Tolkien expert" to review the LOTR. Beutlin Send a private message to Beutlin Nov 2 2012, 2:53pm
