Thread: Poll: Who to Read LotR to You?
I also considered Merry and Pippin, but figured they'd disagree about how the other was reading the story. "That's not the way it happened Merry, Gandalf said to me..."
So instead I chose Bilbo Baggins, hoping he could stay awake long enough to complete reading one chapter each evening.
I chose Gandalf. Treebeard would have also been nice, if I wasnt a hasty person...
I was stuck between Tolkien, Galadriel, and Arwen, but finally settled on Arwen because I think she would make a nice storyteller, with her soothing elf voice.
On the other hand Treebeard could have been a good reader if there wouldn't have been the possibility of him taking a century to go through it!
We are a bunch of loons.
Though it is very close between him and Gandalf.
"... he heard a great voice calling.. " - Merry in the RoTK
Bilbo would have been good too..
i wonder how it was Ugluk that got tied up with Gandalf in the first place. To speak of it now would be a non-sequitr as everyone can see that it is Gandalf the obvious winner.
Hey and all didya see that it is possible for one to vote more than once - a bit of a snag actually!
I'm sorry about replying in such an old thread, but I must say one thing - the post that Ammornil wrote is absolutely awesome, I had chills down my spine reading his beautifully written reply.
Ammornil - what an amazing scene to imagine! I loved it!
Well, if we are going by the actual characters in the books as written by our dear professor, then either Tolkien, I have a cd with him reading some of The Hobbit, or Gandalf. But if i am thinking of the movie then I think the sweetest voice, the most calming and well modulated would be Legolas , hands down.
Oh, I wish I would've register on PT early enough to vote in that poll
Tolkien would be an obvious guess, I'm not sure if I'd be a listener grateful enough for such a honor.
I love Gandalf's voice (I mean Sir McKellen's voice, because he's perfect for Gandalf in my opinion). That would be amazing. No one said "Elrond", but the other Elves were mentioned. I think he could be a great choice - his voice is very fatherly in my opinion, strong enough to read all those tough and dynamic scenes. And melodious and subtle enough to make you feel that you're listening to something very dignified.
