  • The Lord Of The Rings

    Who here has read the novel?

    I have, as well as the Hobbit. I really love the LotR movies, but I prefer the books. It's kind of weird how they split it into three novels when it works rather well as a single novel. I mainly feel that way because I'm reading through the Wheel of Time series right now and each book is like the length of the entire Lord of the Rings. I kind of want to try watching the old LotR movies just to see Glorfindel in action. It's a shame he's missing from Peter Jackson's version.

      The Lord of the Rings is a lengthy work of art. A singular novel closing in on 1000 pages is a bit of a stretch to sell to publishers, especially back then. It was smart to separate it into 3 novels in a sort of "to be continued" way, very much like how A Song of Ice And Fire is written and published.

      On the subject though, yes I have read the book(s). I finished them for a second time (first time reading english) right before Christmas and as usual I loved reading through them.

      I believe you'll be disappointed. It's Legolas that meets them when they try to make for Rivendell from Weathertop. He's voiced by C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels though so that's nice at least.
