I'm ashamed to say I haven't read LOTR, I'm starting them now. Should I start with The Hobbit?
You don't have to, but it's pretty much universally loved so why not?
I've never read it, though, but I have read the Lord of the Rings. I need to fix that at some point but I imagine my hatred of all things hobbit will make me hate The Hobbit.
I hate those little fuckers.
Absolutely start with The Hobbit, then read LOTR, then read The Silmarillion. Then wait a few years and reread it in the order of The Silmarillion, The Hobbit then LOTR
Should have locked the thread right then IYAM.
its the best one
I think one of the gifts my gf is getting me for xmas is the 50th Anniversary LOTR
That's awesome. I have a set that my dad had in the 70s.
I have my own set too, but just paperback copyright in the 80's I think. Nothing as beautiful as that
I think I'd be afraid to read it. I'd screw it up somehow.
think is listed at 400 bucks on amazon
Nah its like $50 or $60 bucks at Barnes n Noble
$57.44 at Overstock
Agreed, but that doesn't seem relevant to the merits of the book vis-a-vis the others.
to me it seem relevant to me
to me that's where we disagree to me
hey man, just let me love the hobbit in peace.
Love away, dog.
Read The Hobbit in December and started Fellowship last night. Never got around to reading it before and am enjoying it quite a bit so far. Frodo is just about to leave the Shire.
It's nice because I haven't seen the movies in forever so most of this is fresh/new for me.
Not ashamed to admit I haven’t seen the movies or read the books.
Started The Hobbit a few nights ago. Bilbo just found the group again and they’re on the move away from the goblins
