Here’s the deal. The second installment of The Hobbit is due to hit theaters soon, so in honor of all things Tolkien, I’m giving away this audiobook CD box set of the dramatized Lord of the Rings trilogy. I’ll even throw in that Hobbit Lego Minifig.
How can you enter to win?
Simply leave a comment with the answer to this question: If you were a character from the Lord of the Rings, what race of character would you be and why?
And you need a refresher, click here for a past post on the different character races available. I didn’t include any of the evil races in that post, but feel free to identify with those as well.
The winner will be chosen at random and notified on Friday, November 22nd. Really good responses will be given two chances to win. Good luck!

I’d have to be an elf. For obvious reasons. No…no…not because I’m a writer. Although that’s something, I guess. Nor because I’m ethereally graceful. Really, it’s because of my keen senses. Seriously. I can sniff out stanky feet from a mile away.
Oh. And I have funny shaped ears.
I would be Faramir, of the race of Men. Why? In the Meyers Briggs Test He is an ENFJ which is my current test placement. http://churchm.ag/lord-of-the-rings-personality-types/
He wrestles with things the same way that I would and added benefit… It is said that Tolkien most identified with this character and placed some of his own personality into this character. So Faramir of Men!
As much as I’d love to say something dramatic such as an elf, or a wizard, I’d have to admit I’m much more like a Hobbit. Pipes, gardening, beer, and a quiet life of storytelling, eating, and community – that sounds about right.
I think I would be plain old man, since I am somewhat familiar with humanity. I don’t want to live forever, and I don’t need *that* much of a beard.
Definitely an ent. I’ve tried various methods to speed up my writing process. I’ve had some success with first drafts, but when it comes to editing/rewriting, I fall back on my entish ways.
I’m sure I’d be a hobbit. I live for elevenses and am a bit of a homebody–though I love an occasional adventure. (I would have to shave my feet, though–so, I may be shunned, or at least publicly humiliated)
I’d have to be a wizard, for reason of all things wizard. I’m sure I could hone my skills and go from AJ the brown to AJ all colorful. The elves have immortality, but I like how wizards just have an extended timeline. There are disadvantages to living forever.
I hate to blow your mind like this, Aaron, but according to the Silmarillion, wizards are lesser gods in the pantheon of Tolkien’s world, thus they are pretty much immortal too. Also, did you know that a Balrog is the fallen equivalent of a wizard?
I would still be human. At the end of the series, the Fourth Age, the so-called “Age of Man,” begins. So I would have to be human in order to ascend to the throne, consolidate power, and rule Middle Earth with a some-metal-softer-than-iron fist.
Oh, and I guess being human is pretty fun as is. Why mess with a good thing?
Probably hobbit… Love of breakfasts and booze and everything else, so seems fitting.
I would probably be a Hobbit. I’d like to think I’m wise enough to be an elf, but it’s probably more realistic for me to be a Hobbit. I do tend to eat a lot… Lol!
These are hilarious answers, and so creative! I’d say Eowyn. She was gutsy. She wasn’t afraid to love (even though it wasn’t returned, darn that Aragorn, why’d he have to love an elf? who can compete with that?). She was brave and not afraid to go into battle. She was resilient under oppression and heartache. But I think it might be her fear I identify with – that she’s locked in a cage because of her gender and position, that she will grow old and never have the chance for great deeds.
Fine. I’ll enter. If I had to pick any particular character, I think I’d like to be a skin-changer like Beorn. I’ve always liked that guy. Lives out in the woods. Doesn’t like to be bothered. Has a soft-spot for wizards bringing just a couple more dwarfs. Plus, my beard and general physique has been mistaken for part-bear on at least one occasion. Probably several. I do also enjoy hunting wargs with my bare paws, I mean, hands.
