I read the entire series of his works at a very young age, and devoured them. When I found out the movies were being made, I read them again, and lapped them up like nobodies business!

I am glad I had read the books, as I would have had such a strange view on them if I had seen the movies first.

To this day, I can read the books, or watch the films, filled with so much awe.

Love it all. sweatdrop xp

I started my love affair with LOTR after I saw the movies for the first time when I was 13. Since then I've read The Hobbit, The LOTR Trilogy, The Silmarillion, The Unfinished Tales, The Lost Tales, and Children of Húrin. They definitely hold a special place in my heart !!

I've read the Lord of the Rings twice, the Hobbit just once (I do not personally like that book but it's readable), Silmarillion five times (my favorite, loved every single chapter of that book), Children of Húrin twice and then all of the History of Middle-earth books.

I can't remember at what age I was when I first came in contact with Lord of the Rings, but I was pretty young, though I remember Gollum/Sméagol scared the hell out of me back then, that's all I remember haha.

Later on in my life I found out about the Silmarillion and became obsessed with it and I'm still

I've read the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, and I'm just chipping away at the Silmarillion right now. Tolkien's world (and his imagination) never fails to impress and fascinate me.
