In my lifetime such a man hath, to my knowledge, been seen thrice before; and after each sight of him followed evil days and the death of men.'"

Book 1, I love those early chapters, the tranquil magic of the shire slowly giving way to the terror of the blackriders, the mystery of old Tom and Aragorn's sudden entrance into the story, fantastic world building and a gradual pace that slowly ratchets up the tension yet lets you soak in the details of a sprawling world.

I wish I could read LOTR again for the first time, I didn't read the book properly till 2007, I have always been a reader but had never read anything of such complexity and length at the time, I had seen Jackson's LOTR multiple times by that point (but me being the weird guy that I am I had actually read some of ROTK already by that point) but Tolkien's prose and the expanded story hooked my straight away and I came to favour the novel long before my first readthrough was complete...
