I love both, there's no way I could say otherwise. Dang, I know practically every line in the movies. But the books mean more to me than the movies could, and I pity those who do not like the books. They are a piece of art that totally fill my heart and mind. If you think I'm crazy- fine, but let's see who kicks butt in the quotes from the book section! booya!
If you've ever read Eragon, it exhibits how two great fantasy stories can be written completely differently. Tolkien is amazing. I love this segment from the book, for it truly exemplifies his power:
"...high on a rocky seat upon the black knees of the Ephel Duath, stood the walls and towers... All was dark about it, earth and sky, but it was lit with light. Not the imprisoned moonlight welling through the marble walls of Minas Ithil long ago, Tower of the Moon, fair and radiant in the hollow of the hills. Paler indeed than the moon ailing in some slow eclipse was the light of it now... a corpse-light, a light that illuminated nothing"
Now, c'mon, honestly, how cool is that?!
