On books I've Read

#1
Has anyone ever read the full set of Lord of The Rings books? Not just the three LOTR but also the Silmarrilion, The History of Middle Earth, and any others? What did you thing of them?

I personally thought that they were pretty good but if you didn't understand them you are fucked. Also I noticed that with all of the things that go on none of them are incorrect or missdated, even in the older versions. Damn im high. but hey just a little chit-chat :rolleyes:

I could barely keep up with all the names in the movie verison of it. I'd hate to imagine how confused I'd be with the books. If I could understand it thought it probably is a good read.

Yes, I've read the entire saga; it's a great story! Tolkien is definitely a master at providing, and conveying, intricate details. So much so, that the story comes to life in a special way, a way only Tolkien can provide; it's simply emersing.

Um, right... it's part of the same saga.

Ya, the Battles with the orks (SP?) are awesome. So real looking. My bro has all three director cut. I haven't watched them non-cut yet though.

I only have the first one, I've only watched it once since I've had. I should have just rented it instead. Oh well.

Never read the books.
Never saw the movies.
I am basically useless to this thread.
But I can tell you that a suite down the hall from me last year would play the LOTR movies when the started pre-gaming.
