Well, I was eleven years old when FOTR was released on cinemas. I went to the cinema without great expectatives, but it blew out my mind. I found a whole new world where I feel like I belonged to. I lost myself for three hours in that full of hope, bright and beautiful story, and I fell in love with it. Certainly, it changed my life and my way to see it.
Now, eleven years later, I still being a hardcore fan ringer =). Now, my twenty-two years old has fallen in love with the books.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Wow, that's a difficult one. I'd say Frodo Baggins, because he's almost a role model for me. When LOTR came to my life I was very young and I was in a moment I needed to be strong, incredibly strong, and Frodo's quest was very inspirational to me. He taught to be brave and stay strong when everything seems to go wrong, to keep hope above all things. I wouldn't be the person I am today without LOTR, nor without Frodo Baggins.
