For the past couple of months I been reading the Lord of the Rings to my eldest son and we finally made to the end of Fellowship of the Rings. As I said in the Power of Tolkien his writing has power even when spoken out aloud. I try to give the character distinct voices and my son seems to enjoy that. A couple of times I had him on the edge of the seat which was interesting. Recently he enjoyed the passion I put into Boromir's rant at Frodo just before he tried to take the ring.
After watching the movies so many times it is nice to rediscover the books.
