I'd love to know what you think once you have read the books as there are somemajor differences between them and the films - especially Faramir.
I second that, Vee.
Well, you read those books, and you will be able to participate more in this site. you know, the discussion, and all sorts of stuff. Next stop: The Hobbit, the Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, Mr. Bliss, Farmer Giles of Ham, Tree and LEaf, Roverandom, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo, Finn and Hengest, and the several other Tolkien books published. and THEN..... (am I putting you off?)
Among the other books, it's worth mentioning The History of Middle-earth, The Letters of JRR Tolkien, "The Monsters and the Critics" and other essayes... But all in their due time! The Hobbit and LotR should come first! Enjoy!
