Again. You guys know the drill. Name, rank, faction. 5 points for that and 5 for answering this question: WoT or the LotR and the Hobbit? No hate, regardless of answer.

The Hobbit is a comfort book for me, so this one is a little tough. I like Tolkien's writing style a little more, it feels less like he's trying to drill information into your head, but WoT's story is amazing and has bigger payoff in my opinion. If I could only have one, it would be WoT, but it would be hard choice to make.

The Hobbit is the best out of the four in my opinion. But I agree that the Hobbit just won’t be able to stand on its own against a fifteen book series that is very close if not equivalent to the Lord of the Rings in most peoples minds.

This far into WoT, I'd say LotR. I love how it feels very much like a mythology instead of usual narratives (with poems and songs and all the jazz). It feels like King Arthur and Faerie Queene and Illiad/Odyssey so to speak. I like the ambience very much, even though it's not as heavy as WoT in terms of politics and cultures (which I also like in fiction).

 

I listen to "Song of Beren and Luthien" in the shower so often that it topped my Spotify list last year. And Aragorn/Arwen love story is definitely one of my favorites in fiction.

I mean, I appreciate the LotR content.. but this is a WoT community, which one could fathom the right response is going to be the favorite is the fandom you are closest with. XD
