I'm new! I'm ridiculously happy to have found a forum where I can talk about Lord of the Rings without sounding like a weirdo!

I've only read the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings though so I'm planning to read the rest of Tolkien's work. What's best to start with? I tried reading Silmarillion a few years ago and found it harder than I expected. Is there a way of easing myself in to the rest of his work?

Welcome to TORC, FetchMeABox!
Love your handle, btw. :D

I've not read the Silmarillion, because, like you, it couldn't grab me.
My sister read it by starting a few chapters in.
By then she was hooked and able to read from the start.
Just one way to do it, I suppose.

I hope you like it here
And I'll see you around the boards.

Hellloooooo, nurse!

So I'm quite happy I've found a place to nerd out about the Lord of the Rings. I've read the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings and some other books, and I've seen all the movies only a bajillion times.

In March, I was shoe shopping and met a girl with the white tree as a tattoo on her arm...I regret never asking for her number so as to have someone I could talk geek with. Oh well, now I have TORC!

Thanks for the welcome, ladies! Glad to hear it.

I'll admit to being a bigger fan of the movies than books (books are great too! just different!), and it's honestly hard to find a place to talk about them. Everyone has too much a hard-on for the books and ruins any discussion with excessive negative derpness. Blarg!

The movies forum can be dangerous for a noobie.
There are those, me included, who think the movies are still good.
Sure, they have their flaws, but I can separate them from the books.
Hang in there, friend, and grow a tough skin.

Hail and well met all!
Another newbie to the collective. I tend to read LOTR every 18m-2yrs, in fact come the end of Sept I'll be setting off on an epic adventure from Bagend to Mordor :)
Look forward to some lively discussions and debates and learning something -there's always something new to learn, even for veterans like me!!

Hi FetchMeABox -same here! Its great to share ideas and experiences of Professor Tolkien's work without blank looks or derision!
Other than the Silmarillion, which is quite hard to get into -I'd definitely recommend The Children of Hurin, still within the Middle Earth pantheon, its a wonderful, beautiful and touching story (I thought anyway) and some unexpected plot lines. If you want to get away from Middle Earth for the afternoon then I'd also recommend Tree and Leaf

Re: NEWBIES CENTRAL: Hello NEW folks, come and say HI!!!!

Postby Elrond Hubbard » Sun Sep 27, 2015 5:40 am

Greetings, One & All:

Believe it or not, I never really knew what Lord of the Rings actually meant, even well-beyond my teen years. Rarely, it would be brought up by others around me and not understanding the context, I wondered what the "rings" were: Rings of Fire of some kind? I mean ... it sounded like a strange moniker, to me, though I was aware there was magic involved. LOTR just wasn't a part of my world.

A friend of mine, though - knowing me to be an artist - asked me to paint him "anything." Aware of his fondness for LOTR, I researched it a little bit and discovered the very charming watercolors of Alan Lee. Frank Frazetta had also done a few - very striking - illustrations. Unfortunately, in trying to imitate Lee's style, I screwed it up, (so my friend never did get a painting from me), but it was based off of one of the tapestries in his sketchbook, from the movies.

This in turn, got me curious about the movies (Fellowship of the Ring & Two Towers, I like, especially). Which, in turn, got me curious about whatever online "presence" might exist for all of my LOTR needs. And I must say that, so far, The One Ring seems as charming as any of the works by Alan Lee. Nicely done!

In Fellowship,

Elrond Hubbard
