Tolkien, film, literature, writing, filmmaking--that's all for now!
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
The films brought me to the books. I was blown away by how much the films could *not* depict. Tolkien's wizardly skill with language continues to amaze me. I fell in love with the books immediately, and haven't looked back since.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Hmm...I would have trouble picking just one. Therefore I won't right now. Let's just say that Gandalf and Sam have a head start on everyone else. :)
