The Fellowship of the Ring - JRR Tolkien

I tried to reread LotR and I failed.
I don't seem to like them as much as I liked it the first time. At least not the Fellowship. The other two could be different, but I'm not inclined to see if it's so or not fairly soon.

This novel is a DECENT read. The reason why, is that I did like it the first time. I just can't focus upon the book with having seen the movie too many times. The movie spoiled the book for me, but luckily the movie isn't half that bad.
Tolkien has been named the father of the fantasy genre, but others have taken it and made it better.
I'm sticking to the movies and I'm not meaning that as blasphemy. :)

  1. I'm hoping that maybe I can finish this by next week.
    I know what you mean though, the movies have influenced what I think of the books, a lot!
