The other night I was watching The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug (of course I was), specifically the scene in Mirkwood where Bilbo climbs the tree to gain his bearings.  I was noticing the beauty of the shot and how vast Mirkwood is.  I also realized that I expected the leaves on the trees to be dark green, maybe even greenish to purplish, but that’s beside the point.  

At that point I realized that most of the fantasy novels I have read have had one vastly huge and impenetrable forest.  

  • Obviously in the Middle Earth novels there’s the Greenwood—which becomes Mirkwood due to the influence of Sauron and Ungoliant’s descendants. (x)
  • Then in the Harry Potter series there’s the forbidden forest.  Since Hogwarts is un-plottable, we really have no idea how big the forbidden forest is, but all evidence believes us to believe it is pretty large. (x)
  • Next, in the Inheritance Cycle there’s Du Weldenvarden, a magical forest so vast and so powerfully protected that Galbatorix has never been able to find Ellesméra (not to mention Sílthrim or any of the other elven cities). (x)
  • In the Kingkiller Chronicle, we have the Eld.  This forest is so deep that no one has ever mapped it completely.  It is bordered by scant civilization, and is a place where at least one member of the Chandrian (Cinder), bandits, and the faen folk (or at least Felurian) run rampant. (x)
  • In the Chronicles of Narnia, there are many forests, but I would say the one that I think fits most is probably the Western Woods, since that’s where lantern waste (and therefore the wardrobe and the largest entrance to the human world) is.  We aren’t sure how far this forest extends either, since the trees have always turned into fur coats upon entry back into the human world.  But due to both the danger and the wonder that Lucy experiences when she first enters the Western Woods, I’d say this is probably the main magical forest. (x)

This is just a start to what I’m sure could be a formidable list.  Any other fantastic forests worthy of note? 

You could add The Edge Chronicles to this

they should make a new reality show where they take all of the Jenners’ money away from Kylie and Kendall and put them in a 2 bedroom, one bathroom house and a public school/college for a certain period of time and see how they cope i think that would be so funny
