Most of you probarly know this book, due to the movie. The LOTR-trilogy is still the greatest movie project of all thim and I don't see it lose that title easily.
My only regret is that I saw first the movie before I read the book, to my shame I must say I even never heard of it. But from the moment I saw the movie, I've been fascinated by it.
A lot of people als don't know that LOTR is actually only a small part in the history and mythology that it's writer, J.R.R. Tolkien, has made. You've got other books like 'The Hobbit' and 'The children of Hurin'.
A lot of fantasy-series, some of wich are also discussed in this section, we're inspired by LOTR.
Tolkien has been working on the history of LOTR for his entire life and unfortunately it was never fully completed before his death. Nonetheless his legacy is priceless. Both the movie and the book are pieces of art that, in my opinion, never will be matched.
