So I finally did it. I managed to FINISH Fellowship of the Ring.
(and it only took 6 months)
I am so impressed with myself.
I really cannot express how boring I found this book. I’m not really sure why that is, because every time I go to try and read them — and believe me, I have tried many many many times over the years — I go in with enthusiasm. Elves, swordfights, magic, politics, quests: the plotlines are all ones which I enjoy greatly in other books. But there’s just something about this trilogy which just puts me to sleep. The Wheel of Time is another series which I should like, yet don’t.
