First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
It's enough says it's changed my life!
Favorite Tolkien character:
Frodo because Oh God i can't explain. He's so sad and melancholy and i feel pity for him, that's had a great suffer and a great strength to do what he's done. And i love the poetic thing of leaving the M-E and going to West to find peace, oh it's so touching , i cry every time.
And the dualism with Smeagol it's wonderful, i love this character too. And Sam, well, it's impossible don't love a person like this, ready to set out his beloved house for his friend. And be so faithful 'til the end, i think it's impossible find someone like this in our real world.
And then i love a lot of characters of The Silmarillion: Feanor, Fingolfin, Turin....too many.
Every character of every book is great for a reason or another.
