    To revist the LotR theme, I have not read "Fellowship".

    I’ve read Fellowship so many times that my original copy fell apart and I replaced my trilogy with a nice single volume edition.

    I have had seven copies of Fellowship, including a custom ebook I made with daily breakpoints and 365 illustrations

    I'd like to read it in English one day, but yeah, I've read the translated version more than once. Now that I have the e-book I should just buy the electronic version

    There's a question I'll always have. Why did Tolkien choose to add that weird 4th act after the main story ends? [face_thinking][face_thinking]

    i think to show that the war had reached everywhere and to show how the hobbits had grown and changed through their journeys. it's an interesting chapter, for sure.

    It’s also kind of a reversal of the beginning of the book, probably deliberately. “Oh, remember when this was kind of a goofy romp with four friends setting off on an adventure, without many of the stakes laid out? WELL GUESS WHAT, MOTHER****ERS?!” - J.R.R. Tolkien, probably.

    “What is that?”
    “This, my friend, is a muzzle brake.”
    “… It comes with a muzzle brake?! … I’m getting one.”

    Makes sense.
    The journey works also as metaphor for life itself, as a path toward improvement, so perhaps in this mindset Tolkien felt like showing, with the last part, how the characters had changed during their adventure. So they needed the opportunity to put into work the wisdom they built.

    Never read any LOTR books fully. I read a part of the first one although I don’t know what they were titled and by read a part I mean read like 100 pages.


    Let’s see never have I read The Da Vinci code.

    Not only I never read the book, but incredibly I didn't watch the movie either and in fact i don't know what the story is about at all.

    I’ve read it.

    It’s basically a bog-standard airport thriller based around a guy running around Europe finding hidden clues in paintings all pointing towards Jesus’ secret line of descendants while being chased by an assassin. For some reason this caused the entire United States to become embroiled in controversy.
