I voted on the last poll, but I changed my mind by the time I hit the submit button! So this time I voted on the Two Towers instead of the Return of the King. I haven't read the Sil yet, so I am neutral on that one.

I added HoME and the other books for more selection.

When you say that you like RotK, do you mean that it contains your favorite parts, or that you feel it is written better than the first two parts of LotR?

For me, RotK contains more of my favorite parts. I also think it does the best job of showing off the beauty of M-E. However I think they're all about equally well-written..... TT might be a bit better in that respect, I'm not sure.

To late.. :( Well.. many of the stories in HoME should have been in the Sil.. The Story about Finrod and Adanehl (sp?) in Morgoths Ring is one of my favorites..

Dang, I can't remember what I voted; this poll was such a long time ago! But today I would vote the Silmarillion.
