Ok, ill admit, this whole Lord Of The Rings thing has hit me. My buddy bought me "The Hobbit", she knows i have been wanting to read it for years, but when i told her that LOTR was making it as a movie she gave me an early Christmas present. I have never really been very involved with Fantasy novels, although i do find Fantasy games (D&D and PC) very entertaining. Well, i dont know what to say. As im reading this magnificent book, i just cant believe the imagination of the author. This book is so beautiful, it almost brings tears to my eyes. I only read a few pages before bed, but i find myself wanting to read it straight through which i am trying to avoid doing. I like the adventure i encounter every night. Id really like to know what opinions others have about this. I cant wait to read the other books as well. ------------------ "Charlie don't surf."
