I think most readers of Tolkien identify with a particular ME race over the others.

For me, the race of men is intriguing because of all their temptations and downfalls, but also their glory.

What about you all?

Elves. For their beauty, their love of nature, their affinity with the stars and the moon, (because I share it,) and their age, knowledge, skills, wisdom, and grief.

Ents. Their simplicity, yet raw power, calmness, but raging anger when aroused, and overall, they're not hasty like all of you pesky lesser races!

Well I'd have to say that I am in total awe of the Elves, there grace n beauty (that doesn't really do them any justice at all). But the greatness of the Numenoreans is also intriguing, how in many ways they seem to compare to the Elves. (which seem totally incomparible to any other race)

1. The hobbits, for their love of the land, of simple life, of happiness and merriment.

2. The men of Gondor, for their bravery and steadfast commitment to principle.

Elves, but specifically the Noldor.

I don't really relate too much with the Teleri, Sindar or Vanyar. The Noldor are passionate, firey, brilliant, quick tempered and not all together friendly - like me. [] But they have their hearts in the right place, and want to do the right thing, even though they make mistakes. They're real, which is the best thing about them.

Like Dunadan I too identify with Ents. I, like the Ents am patient and not too hasty, but if need be, I can rise to anger.

Part Elf, for I love both the forests and oceans alike. Part Dragon, for I'm hot tempered, stock up on money, and I like burning things.

Hobbits! Close to the earth, brave when necessary, fond of good food and drink, and cute. []

Besides, Tolkien always said he was a hobbit in all but size. []

Humans because since I am an human I can sympethize with all they have to deal with. But I admire the men of Gondor for their bravery and willingness to stand by their word.

I consider myself a dark elf along the lines of Eöl for I relate to the grey area between the good elves and a dark heart.

Men, definitely. Despite their flaws, they still manage to overcome evil, and unlike the unchanging Elves they have a fire within them that forces them to constantly better themselves. Men have motivation, while Elves are stagnant and Dwarves are greedy; they may not be the wisest or the strongest, but they are the driving force in the world.

It's just beautiful.
