The plot gets you hooked if you love JJR Tolkens style, for some it might be a little slow.
Aragorn. Hes a beast and makes you wanna be a ranger too
Hobbit Birthday? Lorean? Everything?
Pretty much... maybe the 16 hours was a little split up but it wasn't my fault.
Get this, you will love it.
Unfortunately for me I have read a great deal of science fiction over the past 30 years so now this seminal work seems outdated. Others have taken the idea of a grand adventure trilogy with the powers of good and evil, light and dark magic, and expanded on it. This book seemed anachronistic to me and boring. It deserves credit as a classic but I kept wishing for it to be over.
This book has brought me to so many good places in thought and I can't even begin to describe how. All I can say is that you need to listen/read it and begin to be enveloped in beautiful admiration and wonder.
I just didn't like the narrator that much... The characters always sound happy no matter what is going on. This really turned me off on the scenes where they are obviously supposed to be sad or angry. It is like, the fellowship goes to pleasantville.
