A Tolkien nut obviously!
Loves watching a good film, reading a good book, (or three) or downing a cold pint of Guiness.
Military history and triva, fantasy and science fiction literature.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
When I was about 14 I saved up some pocket money and bought the book (having first been weaned on the film trilogy)...and haven't looked back since. Enthralled, blown away and excited all at once it rapidly became my favaourite book and introduced me to the genius that was Tokien.
Although the Trilogy still holds a special place in my heart, it dosen't come close to the book.
So I guess I should thank Peter Jackson, he got me interested in movies and reading-my two main pursuits
Favorite Tolkien character:
A few faves:
Beren and Luthien
Cirdan the Shipwright
The Talking Purse
