First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
I read the Hobbit at school and I have to admit that I was not all that impressed. I was given a copy of Lord of the Rings to read by my english teacher after handing in my report on the Hobbit.
Lord of the Rings is one of the greatest stories ever written, but a poor book. Jacksons films delivered the story without the meandering of the book - thank god for JRR Tolkien & Peter Jackson.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Hard to choose, it would be either Theoden or Eomer. It's easy to identify with the Rohirrim if you are english I think.
