Well done Leelee

I was going thru one of the most devestating times of my life when I read the Lord of the Rings. Right after that I read Unfinished Tales and then Silmarillion and by the time I received for Christmas JRR's letters to his publishers, family and friends, I found that my life had completely changed and my struggles in a certain area were over.That is how profound this author's words were upon my mind and heart.
Of all the works though it was Unfinished tales that really answered the cry of my heart and gave me courage to go on and fight and win inch by inch.

I tend to think like BlackSword about the role of the gods, they don't interest me much as I being mortal cannot relate to them that much. Interesting absolutely but not to me essential to....anything.
I read Unfinished Tales before Sil and it completely changed my life. That is the absolute truth. I was struggling with some very very serious things and choices, choices that meant no turning back and having to take that journey not knowing if I would make it.
After reading the story of Tuor I was so impressed and moved that I made the hardest choice of my life and it was the right one.
The imagery, the beauty and the majestic lonliness yet preoccupation with the quest just overwhelmed me with emotion.
That moment when he is in the hall and sees the armour, that feeling I got, unbelievable.
It is one story I wish was completed and a movie made out of it by the finest and most gifted people in the world.
