for the last few weeks i've been listening to LoTR audiobooks and today the chapter about Treebeard and Ents resonated with me deeply - i did not expect to cry over fate of the trees

when i had first read the trilogy back in middle school i missed most of the nuance and stayed for the cool fights and stuff, but that's fine. yet i'm glad i've grown in empathy in some ways

by the way, Phil Dragash' audiobooks are really impressive with one narrator doing all the voices. the movie soundscapes may imprint the actors' faces in your mind, but for me after a while each character grew distinct from any adaptation.

and they're available on archive.org !
