Christological Sacrifices: "The Lord of the Rings Trilogy" by Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien


It is not really possible to re-read a book, just as it is not really possible to step into the same river twice. The next time, one's thinking is going to be entirely different. I have read "LoTR" half a dozen times. Each has been different. I think Heraclitus even said you couldn't step into the same river even once. I know what he's talking about. Every single time is a new time.

I remember when I was seven being bored stiff reading and rereading the reading scheme books for my 'assessed reading age' at school. The problem was that I was being assessed by my ability at reading aloud and not allowed to progress until I had read each one to the teacher. I was already a silent reader of proper books from the Praça de Chile Library and could read the scheme books a dozen times before I was called.

The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien

Oh my. This has to be my all time favourite series ever. I just--Oh my gosh I can't even begin to tell you my feelings for these books! That being said, these books are not for everyone, I'd recommend them to hardcore fantasy lovers who don't mind a little description ;)
