That still only counts as one
I have read LOTR twice. I think it is a brilliant book and the films are brilliant as well. I cant be bothered to write any more now so i wont.
My favorite characters are:Aragorn - An inspirational leader who leads the armies of good to victory. He rocks.Arwen - A beautiful yet clever elf.GaladrielGandalf - A true hero who sacrifices himself for good.Gimli - A stout hearted warrior who over comes his dislke for elves to fight with Legolas. A bit of a joker.Legolas - A stout hearted warrior who over comes his dislke for dwarves to fight with Gimli. Very agile.Meriadoc BrandybuckSamwise Gamgee - The true hero of the story. He overcomes his fear and defeats Gollum. He does so much more than FrodoTheoden
