    LOVE IT.

    My friend let me borrow The Hobbit back in 5th grade. I read the first 2 pages and gave it back. But then my dad dragged me to go see Fellowship of the Rings, and I was hooked! And as I came to find out, the books are even better!

    Yes, the first half of Fellowship is boring as hell, but once you get to the Council of Elrond, it speeds way up!!

    And a sidenote: to those of you who have read the trilogy but not The Hobbit: Read it! So much more of the LOTR trilogy makes sense! :p

    I think Lord of the Rings is Great. After you read them once, they are a heck load easier and more interesting. :D

    Personally, I like it to some extent, but there are other good works out there...

    I'm having trouble actually reading FOTR, Right now nothing of importance seems to be happening except for the Hobbits hanging out and Partying.

    The book can be confusing, but when you read it more than three times, it is exciting and for the two movies that came out are awesome, I can't wait for ROTK

    I'm about halfway through Fellowship of the Ring, and so far all it's been is

    °Hobbits eating
    °Hobbits travelling
    °Hobbits sleeping
    °Hobbits travelling
    °Hobbits talking in hushed tones about horrible past events we don't get to see, or horrible current events that we don't get to see.
    °Hobbits sleeping some more.

    I'm seriously hoping things are going to pick up the pace, any time now...


    [face_laugh]

    That is exactly the truth. The whole thing until they leave the Shire is bloody tedious and boring.

    And I cannot vote in this one because I like it more than "it is ok" but it is NOT the greatest book ever written...

    Rings is brilliant, but SW is still in the #1 slot for me. ;)

    LOTR is the most over-rated movie ever.

    And people who voted it was the greatest ever, are not truly SW fans....

    LOTR is great. it's not worth trying to figure out if it's better than SW, though. i think that as far as things i LIKE, i LIKE Star Wars better. but it's sort of like asking which do you feel is the more neccesary to continue to live.....food, or oxygen? i mean, considering i CAN, i guess i'll take 'em both.

    Could you please type up a list of the qualities one needs to be a SW fan? Once you do that, we can perm ban all the people who dont fit the list [face_plain]

    Plus, the poll doesnt say anything about the lotr movies being the greatest ever, just the books.

    As for myself, they are the greatest books ever and the movies are amazing.
