Perhaps my 2 cents will be disregarded, since I've never read LOTR yet, but I appreciated what Ray MacL. had to say. Especially in regard to the Silmarillion. That actually was the first of Tolkien's works I came across (by chance--it was the only title by him at the library the first day I looked), and enjoyed it immensely both times. EVERY Tolkien fan should read it! I'm very much looking forward to reading LOTR, and am becoming quite excited about the movies. But I'm sure The Silmarillion will remain my first love.
