The Fellowship of the Ring, by JRR Tolkien

Once more - really good. I saved it for our trip to London - and read the first two books (almost) on the trip. After seeing the first movie three times and the second once, I really am filled with admiration for both Tolkien and the rich world he created, and how well Jackson has interpreted it. There are many omissions, or telescoping of events that Jackson uses - necessarily, I think. His imagery and actors help and do not hinder reading the books.
