Book: Lord of The Rings
Authour: Tolkien
# of Pages: I don’t know, I didn’t finish it

Many who appriciate eposodic classics that have tradgedies, go into great detail about useless information, and loses the plot frequently, will love this book (or these books rather). I, for one did not. I was lost when Tolkien went on to describe things that were briefly introduced-like where someone was from, for example. The place had absolutly nothing to do with the story, but he told us all about it! Though I do respect Tolkien for being the founder of his genre and all, I donot like the style of writing. Avoid the books, if possible. The movie, on the other hand, was great. Though long (like Tolkien’s books), I was thoroughly sastisfied at the end.

P.S. With my being extremly opinionated, I love a good debate. If you disagree with anything I say, comment! Try to persuade me to change my mind, and I shall try to persuade you!

P.P.S. Jessie Sourire is not my real name- It is french for Jessie smiles (or Smile Jessie). I chose this pen name in honor of my friend back in 6th grade and have used it ever since.

Yeah, I agree. I tried 3 or 4 times to read it, and finally finished it once I'd seen the movie. But I think Tolkein did have some issues with talking way too much.
