Master of Doom, and by Doom Mastered


O! That I may not covet thee!

I always liked Tuor, but not how I loved Turin son of Hurin. I'm thrilled to finally get the chance to dig all the way into the Narn i Hin Hurin as it was meant to be read, rather than gather gleanings from The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales. Just when I thought I already had too much to read for the summer!

What is your favorite Tolkien tale? It can be The Hobbit, any parts of The Lord of the Rings, or any other section you highly enjoyed. Leave your vote in the comments!

If I had to pick a section of a Tolkien piece, I'd say when Illuvatar sings the Ainur into existence. As a volume though, hands down, the Hobbit.

I'm going to second the previous post. Illuvatar singing the Ainur into existence is a masterpiece. As a whole, I have to go with the trilogy.

Oh come on you two. Are you really gonna go with a safe answer like the Creation Song? What about when the Valar come in judgment on Morgoth on his black fortress in the North?! Ok fine, you can have your wonderful, beautiful creation, but I'll take my death and destruction served piping hot, thank you very much...

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely.
