I’m recently hooked on the LOTR books.
I remember back in the 80’s when I would walk in on my older brother and found him reading the LOTR books. Being young, and still not into reading these genre of books, I asked him incredulously what the hell he was reading and why. He just looked at me with no expression on his face and put his nose back in the book. “Read it and you’ll see why.” But I never did read those books…until now.
After watching the LOTR movies, I found that there was more information I could get from the books because during this time I was fascinated with fantasy/adventure books. So, I bought the books and instantly got hooked.
I just finished the first book and now onto my second one. Very nice to read something where you already have a visual of what could have and might have been.
