Wanted to read this before the movies ruin it. I love this book SO MUCH but I haven't read it in 15 years - or maybe more. It was just as awesome as it used to be. Maybe more so, because I've read so much more fantasy now, that I can really appreciate the first book ever written in the genre. Very curious to see how they're going to do ring vision in the movie, because Bilbo wears it a ton more than Frodo did. When Bilbo is in the elven king's castle he doesn't take it off for like a month. If I had to put up with creepy shadows for that long I would probably go insane.
