Not sure how many times I have enjoyed this trilogy, starting when I was in high school. Just finished it yet again. Just magnificent. I am thinking through a companion book to What I Learned in Narnia — What I Learned in Middle Earth — and so I wouldn’t want to say too much about it here. But I will say two things. One is that I believe the color gray is mentioned about a hundred times more than all the other colors put together. And secondly, Tolkien is enough of a master to make going to Heaven really sad. But these books satisfy as few others do.
