To celebrate Valentine's Day read The Tale of Beren and Luthien again. Looked over The Lay of Leithian, also known as Release from Bondage. Wonderful love story. Unfortunately many will instead be going to a film about bondage, with a clearly designated hero. Here is a list I found of some bad moments in the book. http://theramblingcurl.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/fifty-abusive-moments-in-fifty-shades.html?m=1 Here is what someone thinks of the film. http://trilbee.com/reviews/written-review-fifty-shades-of-grey-2015 May this libertine trash go to Angband. The fandom seems largely made up of people whose social lives have a puncture, libertines, and those who just go for something 'popular' and think that makes it good. Release from Bondage, along with a beautiful love story, has Elves, Werewolves, Sauron... Tolkien considered it The Chief Story of the Silmarillion. Amidst the great deal of misery in the Middle-Earth Legendarium, there is some good. Tolkien's works are good in showing that about the world. 50 sades (not mistype) is certainly not something good, a combination of Twilight and the works of the Marquis of Sadism, an Angband to Beren and Luthien's Valinor. For now, Galu (Sindarin for Good Bye).
