    I endorse the idea of reading the book again! I'm only on p. 32 so you can soon catch up with me. ;)

    If German, then please the Margaret Carroux translation, as she did this together with Tolkien, so it's very close his original.

    We all know that there is absolute no other one. My eyes turn yellow when it comes to this.

    @Star Dude Tolkien, as a philologist, spent a lot of time on the translations of his works into many languages. This is brought out in "Letters".....one of the funniest letters is about his efforts to assist the translation to Swedish. Some of the words/concepts in his books don't translate too well into Swedish....

    Just finished the last chapter of the Margaret Carroux version. And just started reading the "Wolfgang Krege" translation (I found it in our library). And it's not as bad as I heard. I still like it.

    Saw this thread in the "new threads" feed and had to pop in. Big fan of lord of the rings. The movies grabbed my imagination like few other things had done when I was a kid (I was born in 96, so this must have been a couple of years after Return of the king came out). I borrowed the books multiple times from the school library to read them and was completely absorbed into the world Tolkien had built. I think the experience taught me a lot about myself as a person, and how much I enjoy diving into big, fictional worlds, whether it's Star Wars, or video games or super heroes or whatever. I think I'm going to have to read the books again soon, it's been a long while since last time.
