The original and, still, the best, 7. Juli 1999
I'm an avid reader, though not a fantasy/sci-fi fan under normal circumstances and I've read many of the more well-known works, many of which I enjoyed thoroughly. The Lord of the Rings, of all the books I've read, is my unquestionable favorite. No other book is so rich and detailed with the history and peoples of its world and no other book tells a tale of such magnitude and beauty. So many people today have such short attention spans and require such consistant melodrama that it's no wonder the beauty and detail of Tolkein's masterpiece ends up wasted. I've read The Lord of the Rings many times and know the story and its conclusion well but I don't read them for the story anymore, I read them to return to Middle Earth.
For anyone who has yet to read these books, I envy you.
