J.R.R.Tolkien SEVERLY needed an editor back then. I mean, damn, just... damn. I am 200 pages into fellowship and it feels like I could rip out 100 of those pages in terms of proof reading the overly descriptive stuff out... which INFECTS the book so far.
The book is cool when things ACTUALLY HAPPEN, however the descriptions are so damn boring and interrupt the damn story so damn much that I can feel my hand wanting to reach to my DS to relieve the boredom of reading such huge descriptions, now, if there was a glossary it would be good if he had just put them in the back of the book, but by putting them right in the middle of things going on, it feels more like a chore reading this book so far then anything else.
Now, I love the movies, love them to death. However... I am amazed by how BORING this book is so far.
J.R.R. Tolkien is so damn good at overly describing things, that he could probably describe a leaf dropping from a tree in over one hundred pages. I am unsure if this is a gift or not however... should I continue, or does his overly descriptive story interrupts keep happening at an even worse rate?
