Re: LOTR's decade attempt. lets do this!

I reread them this past January for the first time since I was fifteen and found I wasn't bored at all. In fact, the notoriously slower passages were quite relaxing in some sense, as if Tolkien was just saying "hang on, we don't have to get there yet. Let's just chill out in this forest for a while, smoke a pipe and enjoy some leisurely conversation."

What impressed me the most in a way was realizing that someone else could come along and adapt these books and end up with quite different movies from Jackson, and yet also, in some way, stay quite true to the books.
