Big LotR fan here, but I missed some easy ones due to my own stupidity. I misread Sauruman as Sauron, misread "what shadowfax was" as "what shadowfax HAS" and simply didn't see the Rivendell question. I shouldn't take these quizzes right after waking up...

Excellent quiz, thank you! I thought I wasn't going to remember the city where Tolkien lived, but then I guessed the quotation even before having all the answers and it gave me the first letter for that question ("O"). So easy! Oxford, of course!

When the word for the race of tree creatures is on the tip of your tongue, and you know it is a short word that starts with E and has a T in it, but you can't pull this word out of your brain...
