No [In reply to] Can't Post

But the absorption of books, movies and stories in general are a rather low priority for me (though I enjoy them just the same!), so maybe I just have not noticed.

As for Tolkien and originality, I think he regularly subverts (unconsciously perhaps)many aspects of the hero's journey. Even if I thought he didn't, I probably wouldn't care anyway. All IMHO, of courseSmile
