Lord of the Rings
I've just started rereading it, wanting to do so before the movie comes out in December -- and ... and ... well -- I haven't read the Lord of the Rings since I was about sixteen. Now I'm 34. And I have to say that the experience of reading this book is staggeringly deeper than I remember. Howard Tayler said much the same thing, and I see why.
Wow. What a book! (I did read the Hobbit recently as well, but my copy of the LotR was lent to a friend and to the best of my knowledge, it's still in a shopping bag at his mother's house. But lord, his mother talks and talks, and I don't want to go get it because I don't *have* several hours for chit-chat. So I broke down and bought a new copy, which has better cover art anyway.)
