“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
-- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
This was a great book. Much better than the movie. I read a lot of Sci Fi / Fantasy novels, so it was hard for me to come up with a favorite. I finally decided on this one. If you like Sci Fi and haven't read this, you should give it a shot.
