  • tdm: All I read was " the pre smartphone era" and had to wonder if that means smartphones have their own era now...  :face-eek

  • Gan_HOPE326: The good thing about LOTR though is, it's very atmospheric. It's slow, sure, but that kinda builds up the epicness of the whole thing. It doesn't pack all of its pages with a dearth of confusing events one after another. And so when something big suddenly happens, it's all the more impactful.

  • Zxcvbnm11592: I've always been one for story. Whether it be books, movies, anime or whatnot. So when the first 10 pages of LotR was just a goddamn description, I gave up and have never even attempted to read the books since.

  • Gan_HOPE326: When reading LOTR, you must keep in mind: it is the work of a guy SO NERDY, he invented an entire language and THEN fantasized on how the world where a civilization using that language would look like, borrowing wildly from Norse epic poems. It is, fundamentally, the epic fanfiction of a lit geek. That will help you make sense of everything.

  • amiblue: Of course that doesn't include people who read it just for sake of finding 10th century insults.

  • amiblue: I read it in the pre smartphone era. I couldn't even google if something was worth skipping or not because for that I had to turn my pc on. What I learnt was that if you read it all and pay attention to every detail,  then you would get lost and miss out more than if you had skipped.

  • Zeronoux: I guess since this is my first time reading the books, the novelty has yet to run out xD

  • HUNRonin: When I first re-read LOTR I got stuck on page for months that was entirely dedicated to describing the plains of Rohan. It was sooooo boring.

  • Gan_HOPE326: Oh, yeah, I DID skip some songs/poems too. The worst offenders are indeed Tom Bombadil (aka "the day Tolkien put his son's ganja instead of tobacco in his pipe by mistake") and the whole dinner at Elrond's court. After that, it gets more bearable.
