I love the Lord of the Rings series, books and DVDs. I bought them all and can't get enough.
I started reading the book most recently and I enjoy every single word J.R.R Tolkien wrote and these words wrap you up in a fantasy world.
Although I watched the films (over and over again) before reading the books, I still enjoy reading it, as it's almost a whole new story. It is much more detailed, the little Hobbits experience a great adventure and take a very long journey just to reach Rivendell.
I could go on and on about how much I love this story, but I let you experience the world of Tolkien for yourselves :)
Love and Peace
