Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?
The Lord of the Rings. The complete trilogy.
I would like to immerse myself once more in that fantastic universe created by Tolkien. Go out of the harsh reality for a while and explore through the adventures of the hobbits, elves, dwarves, ents wizards and men, the emotions and ambitions present in humanity, good and evil, but knowing in advance that, at the end, goodness will prevail, and that when all seems lost, there is a way to defeat the violence and find peace.
A balsam for the spirit in times like ours.

Nothing can take you away like words! Love your choice – it’s a favorite!
I have the audio version which is brilliant. I hope — maybe next winter? — to go live in middle earth for a while.
It’s worth it, really.
I read the series (I started with the Hobbit) last summer for the first time ever and have read it through twice now. I definitely agree… or would if I owned the books.
These are books I’m glad I bought and are part of my humble library. in fact I’m planning to read them again as soon as I finish the one I’m reading now. Every time I read them I find new aspects to enjoy. And the literary quality is superb
I have reread this a number of times (skimming over some of the longer descriptive parts) – love it! Great choice!
It’s great isn’t it? Thanks 🙂
Very good book review- inspired me to read this book.
Thank you. It is worth it. It will not disappoint you.
Definitely high on my re-read list as well. Great pick 🙂
It’s a fantastic escape. If I hadn’t mislaid my copy, about 1/4 into the Fellowship of the Ring, I’d be reading it right now.
You have to find it and retake it!. It gets better and better as you turn the pages. it’s worth it.
