I'm surprised to have finished this in about a fortnight, though it was helped by me being off sick with a cold at the beginning and hence having lots of time tucked up in bed in which to read. It's always nice to re-read, and made nicer by having seen the films again, and of course being in French adds another dimension too. It was especially nice to re-read the interactions with Faramir, and remind myself just what his character is really like. And the Gollum/Smeagol stuff is of course rather different written than when done on film. I liked the way the film portrayed it though, it worked well. Um, I'm rambling to no real end here aren't I? Shall give it a break and read a couple more things in English before going on to Le Retour du Roi, but I'm looking forward to it still.
