There really isn`t that much to say.
I think the Lord of the Rings is among the treasures of the world's literature. I was read these stories when I was very young and they had a great effect on my character, for the better I expect. And when I read these books myself later on they truly gave me hours of enjoyment and insight into a wondrous world.
My favorite characters are:Treebeard - Something about moving trees always gets me.Gandalf - Who doesn't like an old wizard who can create smoke rings to shame the most talented hobbit.Bilbo Baggins - "The Hobbit" was one of the first books I read, and Bilbo will always have a nostalgic worth.Galadriel - When these stories were read to me while I was young, she was the character I looked up to the most.Aragorn - Well, lets just say we have the same problem.
