I was wondering if the 3 books in the series are easier to get into? It seems most of you enjoyed The Hobbit more, but maybe it will be the other way around for me. It's not that I disliked The Hobbit, I really did enjoy the lesson it was trying to teach.
Ha ha. I'm the opposite. I'm getting into Tolkien's books no problem, but Harry Potter didn't really hold my interest. I read the first book and that was it
I could imagine myself walking with them in their journey and living everything with them.
I think I read that Tolkien actually knew C. S. Lewis.
I also thought there were a lot of similarities between LOTR and HP - Galadriel could see things, and the spider, etc.
