Definately The Silmarillion.

I'll add that and the Unfinished Tales to the list.

The Two Towers...though it's kind of unfair to break it up since The Lord of the Rings is all one book, really, lol.

Technically FotR, TT, and RotK are all one book (that is what Tolkein intended anyways... But nevertheless, I have only managed to read half of FotR so far, so I can't vote. :p

never could get through fellowship, I've got the whole LOTR saga and hobbit and some visual encyclopedia. But I'll be darned if I don't keep getting bored with fellowship. I'll finish it one day though

But the Silmarillion is like a history book. It's not a story.

And anyway, ROTK is the best. Of course, I'm the only one here judges something by its actual merits, as opposed to whether or not something in the book rox0rs or not.

Anyway, the ROTK battles are the best written battles in Fantasy history. So ROTK wins.

Who says? I appreciate LOTR as both a great literary work and a story which happens to r0xx0r, Mr. High 'n' Mighty

And how do you know that you're the only one? Hmm? *cough* Conceited! *cough*

It seems like it from the comments.

I guess I shouldn't have been conceited, but judging a book based on battles alone makes no sense to me.

Maybe people dont' feel like writing out an literary essay to justify all the reasons they prefer one book over another.

I think you guys are kinda getting too upset over this. Everyone rates things differently.

Just like in books you have different "criticisms" same with movies. I may like ____ for its plot while someone else may like it cause its ______ _____ as the lead character, and someone else may just like it cause of the special effects. I don't really wanna accuse you guys of anything, just it seems to me that you're taking this personally when it shouldnt be.

Yeah, I'd go with the whole trilogy together....but since I had to pick, ROTK... I haven't read the Simarillion or Tales yet.

I guess you've never read The Wheel Of Time series by Robert Jordan... WoT sends LotR running scared in the battles part.

Also, Fett, no one here is as obsessed with pop culture and all that junk as you are.

Hmm...I always see Wheel of Time books in the omni-discounted, nobody wanted these bin at the book store, so I've kinda steered clear of the series.
