Reading "For Women Only" by Shaunti Feldhahn. It is a biblical perspective on men, what they think and how they are wired. Really excellent.

For those of you men who are interested, there is the companion book, "For Men Only" by both Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn. I was shocked by how men think! unsure.gif

Leelee, dear, I tried to tell you that beforehand. As good as the movies were, they can't begin to compare to the books. You're just beginning your journey. There is lots more out there after the trilogy if you want to delve into other stories and histories of Middle-Earth and the history of the different peoples, races and languages that he created. Let me know if you want any help.

Very true. It's not just story details either, the books have a completely different feel from the films.

Aye, lad I know ye told me there are differences. It's just somewhat suprising is all. Dinna git me wrong, lad...I am enjoying every page I turn. biggrin.gif As we all know, movies that are created by storylines can be much, much different.

I love new Journeys, whether it may be stories or life journeys. Once I finish the Trilogy, I plan on reading The Silmarillion; I believe I mentioned that I picked up the book not long ago. I appreciate yer offer; I may take ye up on it biggrin.gif thumbs_up.gif note.gif Thanks ranger note.gif

The Silmarillion is a tough read, but very informative for those who want a little (lot) more.

Has anyone here ever read the Enchanted Forest Chronicles? It's a series of four books: Dealing with Dragons, Searching for Dragons, Calling on Dragons, and Talking to Dragons. It's a different take on traditional fantasy. In the first book, instead of the princess getting kidnapped by a dragon, the princess, who is fed up with being a princess, runs away to a dragon. Then knights and princes show up to rescue her from the evil dragon. Despite that there's nothing to recuse her from and the dragon isn't evil.

Sorry about that. I forgot to say the author. Thanks for pointing that out. They were written by Patricia C. Wrede.
