When was the last time you read The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings books?
It's been about two years since I read them. I used to read them every year so I've read them about five or six times ever. They are, by far, my favorite books of all time, despite everyone I know insisting they are too boring.
I read both many years ago. The Hobbit first. So I really enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy when the movies were made.
I find Tolkien somewhat tedious to read in the Lord of the Rings. There is so much description and detail my eyes cross.
I read the hobbit roughly five or six years ago. I really enjoyed it at the time and I look forward to the movies. As for lord of the rings; I tried to read fellowship of the ring after seeing the movies, but I got bogged down in the hobbit descriptions. I would still like to go back and finish the trilogy, but it might be a while before I prioritize it.
I think I was 13 or 14. I liked them very much then. I'm sure if I read them today, I would either get more out of the books or I would hate them altogether.
I read The Hobbit for the second time back in August and I read Lord of the Rings almost 10 years ago now while I was in highschool. Great books, I thought the Hobbit was a slow paced book when I first read it, now reading again it seemed really fast paced. There's a major action sequence in nearly every chapter. It kind of feels like a group of short stories within an overarching adventure of trying to recover and save the Dwarves homeland.
