    I'm reading a Carole Nelson Douglas book about Irene Adler (of Sherlock Holmsian fame) that caused me to google this information.

    Just thought I'd share it here:


    For instance:

    Aragorn - The king
    Frodo - the one who bears the burden
    Melkor - Messenger, angel and king
    Hobbit - The God of Words (Egyptian)
    Gollum - Speechless

    What a superb book this is! I have read it only twice so far, and was more hooked onto it the second time!

    Favorite lines in this book

    Gandalf: That leaves you just ten minutes. You will have to run

    Bilbo: But-

    Gandalf: No time for it

    Bilbo: But-

    Gandalf: No time for that either. Off you go!



    Another set of dialogues

    Bilbo: Good Morning

    Gandalf: What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?

    I just completed reading The Hobbit, an exceptionally well written book. I liked the riddles and the conversation of Bilbo and The Smaug the most. J R R Tolkien has written a classic book of all the time.

    I read all of the LOTR at a young age (young enough) but when the Hobbit surfaced in popularity all my friends had read it but I didn't even know about it! Haha!
    So I tried to read it but alas, it was not for me. Which is funny because I charged through LOTR and loved them... :p
