The Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day Thirty

“Oft evil will shall evil mar.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

Day Thirty: Your Favourite Book Of All Time

The Lord of the Rings, of course. Could it be anything else?

I’m aware that I’ve written about The Lord of the Rings at length quite a lot recently, in my reviews of the books and in the course of the Thirty Day Book Challenge (Day One, Day Thirteen and Day Nineteen spring to mind), and anything I write here may feel like repetition.

So what I will say is that The Lord of the Rings is a terrific story, a message of hope and defiance, a hymn to the little people of this world, and a myth with a grain of truth.

And it seems fitting to end with Tolkien, since I began the Challenge with him. So, to the writer I never met: thank you.

(And, before you ask, yes it does count as one book.)
