    I Wish There Were More

    Since I've read everything from the Silmarillion to the ring trilogy and the lost books, and Tolkien biographies, I've exhausted the cubboard. I so wish there were more material.  What shocked me the most was to find tall elves who were mighty warriors.  After all, elves are...

    The First Step of a Journey

    I can still remember my initial introduction to J. R. R. Tolkien's works.  As was the case with my development of interests in mythology, history, and fantasy, the catalyst was my older brother.  We were on a road trip, heading to Hilton Head Island so that my mother...

    The Immortality Paradox

    In the mythology of Tolkien there are two race of children of Iluvatar, the immortal Elves and mortal man. Each race, though kindred are endowed with slightly different natures.  And the greatest of the difference is the immortality of the elves and the mortality of men.  Each...

    I read the LoTR book series

    and liked it.. My only complaint is that occasionally characters would run into something like a wall and the book would go off on some long tangent about this history of the wall. No offense Tolkien, but if you had stayed on subject it would've probably only been one book!

    The man is amazing. Absolutely amazing.

    What must it feel like to have a mind so boundless you can create a whole new world, complete with ancient history, peopled with fascinating characters and languages. One of my very favorite places to visit. :D

    Whole Worlds

    It's been a  while since I've read "Lord of the Rings", and now I'm revisiting "The Hobbit". I am amazed once again, how perfectlu created and detailed the world of Tolkien's books is. From the maps to the several languages, not to mention creatures. I still haven't read...

    I am always obsessed by Tolkien.

    I try to see any documentary, or join any discussion on his works. The fact that I believe his book are high literature, yet they popular. They are not just relegated to the halls of academia where a few old men pore over the words endlessly while no one else cares. Which is...

    Read The Books

    I'm one of those people who believe the Lord of the Rings books are far superior to the movies. Now I liked the movies and own them on DVD, and I accept the fact that they are different media and have to tell the stories in a different manner. After all, there a lot of time...

    The Council Of Elrond

    One of my favorite chapters of the Fellowship of The Ring book. It was only giving a three minute treatment in the movie and is an entirely different even than the one in the book.  But the book takes the time to give you the histories of the characters and the ring.  One of...

    Can't Help But Love His Work

    I've read all the Major works of Tolkin. His prose is so unbelievably beautiful it make reading a pleasure. The only thing better than reading Tolkin is rereading him. Usually, every summer I try to reread either one of the Lord of Rings books of the Silmerillions . I wasn't...
