The Lord of the Rings

Posted in slice2017

The Lord of the Rings is pretty much known to everyone who has lived. It has gained fame as being an epic fantasy story, written by the legendary, J. R. R. Tolkien. However, not many people read it. It’s not one of those easy to read books that give you a quick fix of fantasy. And although those can be nice once in a while, The Lord of the Rings is truly something different that gives you a different kind of story. It is a bit dense as I’ve said before, but it provides something more consistent and a deeper story that takes you further into the book.

I recently finished the second book, The Two Towers: Being the Second Part of The Lord of the Rings, and that was an epic book. I read them when I don’t have anything to do and they’re best read with a few hours at a time because you really need to invest the time to learn all of the names and the story. It’s more of a consistent book, a book that you always have at hand and is hard to read all at once, but gives consistent enjoyment. It is not for everyone of course. Someone who has never read something as dense as The Lord of the Rings will have a hard time going through it. And the names can become confusion. Saruman and Sauron, The Riders of Rohan, Minas Tirith, etc. It can get a bit confusing if you’re not investing in reading it all, but if you are, then you are in for a ride.
