3rd Sunday: One of your Favorite Authors and why you pick their books up again and again
It would be wrong on so many levels for me to do this week’s topic without talking about Professor Tolkien. The man has created One Fandom to Rule Them All, am I right? Tolkien spent his entire life creating a mythology and I for one cannot get enough of it. Before you say anything I do own the documentary film Ringers: Lord of the Fans. Why do I keep coming back? I’m not quite sure myself. The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion have grand epic adventures, but the stories show the best and worst that is possible in people and what consequences their choices have on the rest of the world. Even though some of the stories might seem like everything is alright in the end, there’s still a tragic price that was paid to achieve that outcome.
He was dedicated to his world and his wife was his Luthien. Gah, make the romantic feels stop! I can’t take it!
