Lord of the ring is the best fantasybook because without it there would have been no other (at least not like we know them today). Tolkien has had a huge impact on popular culture.

I dislike Sam because of the way he acted against Smeagol. And there was something about his attitude I didn't like.
And good/bad doesn't matter at all, interesting/uninteresting character does.

Sting Lord of the Ring 4?

I've heard some strange rumors about a new Lord of the Ring movie after the Return of the King. It's supposed to take place after the war is won. Does anyone else know something about this?

Try taking away "living" from the sentence and you can see why it's there.
