A Celt's point of view
Either The Hobbit or The Deerslayer was required reading when I was in high school. Unfortunately, my teacher forced us to read the latter. When I found out how much the other class was enjoying The Hobbit, I decided to read it, too. I then decided that I had to read the Rings Triligy. I never finished The Dear Slayer. That kind of put a dent in my GPA, but it was worth it.
Some of my other interests include the martial arts and anime. Chobits is one of my favorites. Does anybody know what Chobits translates to in english? (I've got to learn more Japanese someday.)
My favorite characters are:Gimli - Brave as hell and always lusting for a kill. You gotta love a guy like that!Gandalf - The wisest and most powerfull of them all.
