Best JRR Tolkien Books


The Top Ten

1 Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Well I did like the silmarillion. I just thought about it and the return of the king was phenomenal. The Silmarillion was also amazing and I had a hard time thinking of it. But in the end. The Return of the King was the best in my opinion

2 The Hobbit

The Lord of the Rings was the best of his books. - LordDovahkiin

Best adventure book ever! - Ajkloth

Nice book there. Tolkien’s writing attracts people and it makes me feel good. The Hobbit is awesome and amazing.

3 Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Best book ever
