    Never have I been so sad to give a low rating to such a revered book I'm so sorry I can't tell you how sorry I amAgain I'm so sorry but I found this book unbelievably dull I really am so so sorry I'm desperately sad about this This series has been such a foundation for modern day fantasy that I'm incredibly disappointed in myself for not liking this I have always wanted to be a Tolkien fangirl I've always wanted to learn Elvish and get completely offended à la Stephen Colbert but I can't I just can't I want so desperately to love Tolkien but it just ain't happening I've been trying this book for 17 years Tolkien and I have a sad history I've always been a book lover when I was young I would persist through any book no matter how trying The Hobbit was the first book that made me fall asleep It's memorable to me because that's the first time and only the second time it's ever happened The other book that made me fall asleep? You guessed it The Fellowship of the Ring I tried The Fellowship in 10th grade I couldn't get past Bilbo's birthday party I tried it again almost 10 years ago when I was stuck in bed for several days due to oh a giant surgical wound in my neck My doctor said I had to stay in bed for a few days So I reasoned what better way than to resume my attempt at reading one of the greatest literary classics of all time than whole having no other option?Audiobook it was I didn't last past Tom Bombadil before I decided fuck this I'm going to head to the gym with a bloody bandage on my neck True story I got a lot of really weird looks My doctor gave me a prescription for Vicodin because he was concerned the pain would be too much to bear Apparently I didn't even need the Vicodin because that pedophile Tom Bombadil put me right to sleepSeriously were it not for the fact that it is written by Tolkien I would have hated this book It was so unbelievably dull There were parts that to a Tolkien amateur like me didn't have a whit of relevance or anything interesting to add to the plot namely say the first 700 pages of the book Seriously what the fuck is up with the farmer and Tom Bombadil?The plot was all sorts of disjointed Some parts just didn't make any sense Tolkien is a linguist at heart and it shows because all the famous quotes we know from him are just sound bytes In context sometimes they don't really make any sense All the poems and songs are in there to sound pretty and frankly they bored the fuck out of meFor instance in the middle of a serious dinner party where the company is just trying to decide what to do about the ring surely a simple task all of a sudden little Frodo stands up and solemnly announces All that is gold does not glitterNot all those who wander are lostThe old that is strong does not witherDeep roots are not reached by the frostFrom the ashes a fire shall be wokenA light from the shadows shall springRenewed shall be blade that was brokenThe crownless again shall be king I was like what the fuck man? Where did that come from? It makes absolutely no sense in the context of the scene Oh sure it's an inside thing on how Aragorn was the secret king but nobody knew that Everyone elf hobbit dwarf and me would have thought he was completely high on some elven grassLet me make this clear I do not for an instance doubt Tolkien's literary value I think he has been an inspiration to generations of writers artists hell gamers My beloved World of Warcraft game featured elves pretty much every fantasy book we have these days have been inspired in one way or another by Tolkien Again he was an amazing linguist his work developing the Elvish tongue among others as well as his efforts in developing the rich fantastic history of the world within his books is not to be disregarded by any meansBut again he is a linguist He is a scholar He may be the most brilliant one of those in the world an inspiration to generations but for me personally his writing is not to my tastesBut damn the movies were amazing
