Thread: Poll: Like to Read LotR to You
In our Poll: 'Who would you like most to read the Lord of the Rings to you?' which person/entity did you choose and why?
always wonderful to'hear'your voice.
I would choose Cirdan the Shipwright. He is ancient, knows a lot, could tell me tales about all sorts of things that even Galadriel had not seen. He may have been in one spot, but he got the chance to converse with all manner of interesting characters. Yes I would definitely choose him.
But to have the narrative told to you by a younger character (Frodo, for instance), would be much more exciting, because they'd probably know how to spice up a narrative with their voices. Still, I'm guessing that everyone chose an older character because the older ones are generally more serious and give accounts that make the story more objective, since Galadriel, Cirdan, Gandalf and Tolkien would probably all see the events in the LOTR in a more historical view than would someone like Frodo or Ugluk.
At least, if she really is the likeness of L’thien, as she makes the world believe. There should be more reason for claiming such a title than just having dark hair and marrying a boorish Ranger. Oh well.
well, there's an eye-opener and no mistake...
what a great gift.
