GOOON!!! I'm a bigger HxH fan than I am of LoTR, but it's cool to see them get some recognition for a change.

I'm considering reading the Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings... are they worth it?

well I guess it depends whether you have taste.(he chuckles to himself)

the hobbit has around about, 350-pages, where as the lord of the rings has something like, 1008 pages.

but yes, they are most definitely worth it.=) tolkien's work defines modern fantasy as we know it, also as a lover of 'Norse mythology' I recommend it.

You're making a pretty big assumption here, that this guy will like Tolkien's "dry-as-bones" writing style. I mean, you're totally allowed to do so, but it's possibly better to ask which books he already likes, to get a comparison in mind. I've met a few folks who just hate Tolkien. Guy loved describing things and creating culture more than he loved the actual storytelling, and it sometimes shows a little too strongly.

um-well this is strange. I don't remember making any such assumption, big or small.reading back across our conversation, I do see a joke I made about the subjective...but alas no transcribable, assumptions. you see, he asked other peoples opinions on the value of Tolkien's work. I simply made a joke about it being subjective, and gave my opinion on the matter as requested.

as for asking him his repertoire of reading, I thought about it, and decided not to bother,as he may, as a couple of my friends did, like it anyway. regardless of there previous experience. in fact regardless of what they favoured before in terms of genre.

yes, Tolkien has a "dry feel"-(paraphrase) with respect, I believe that your talking about his 'grown up' approach to writing about his vision of the world, seen through the Norse and literately perspectives.

Also, just as my opinion, that its "narrative-bliss" is subjective, so is your opinion that he "loved describing things and creating culture more than he loved the actual storytelling" I believe that his love of language creation and culture, meant that his story telling was far better for it. I feel his story telling is good regardless of that, anyway. If you have the patience that is. trust me, having patience, leads to a grater pay-off.

p.s
what is your, favourite fantasy book? =)

This has to be the first time I don't feel an urge to kick Gon. The drawing is just too awesome.
