Deumeawyn, I still read the trilogy, sometimes twice a year. In between, I read other books, of course, but I always return to those stories. As with you, they all captured my imagination and the history of certain objects have always been intriguing.
The movie adaptations were fair enough, but there were so many things that were either convoluted or missing, entirely. Faramir wasn't portrayed as he was in the books, Sauruman was treated as a simple plot device, and so forth.
The Hobbit movies were..........well, they were movies. By the time "The Hobbit" movies were in the works, it was all about the franchise, rather than telling the story, and it was drawn out into too many movies.
Eh...........it is what it is. So glad you're having a good time on this site!
