The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, Book 1)
The Diary of Anne Frank Syndrome(DAFS)


What's that you ask?
DAFS is a condition first expressed by my Social Studies, Reading, and Histrory teacher in 7th grade. She was talking about the Diary of Anne Frank, saying she had tried to read it many times, but could never get into it. She says now that it is so renowned that people are afraid to say it's bad. I beleive the Fellowship of the Ring (FotR) suffer from DAFS.
Sadly, I'm only 13, and haven't read many books from Tolkien time period (plus I think it's stupid to say "That's kinda the writing style back then." If's it's a "classic," shouldn't it be "timeless?"
First of all, the novel is flat out boring.
This emantes primarily from Tolkein's writing style. It's nice to know what the terrain and enviroment the traveling in, sure. BUT Tolkein almost seems to develop the terrain and enviroment RATHER than Frodo and companey. It's as if he's more interested in these than his own characters!
Perhaps becuase of this, his characters seem abhorrably cardboard. Especially Sam, he's almost a robot modeled like a broken record ("I must serve my master...I must serve--)
There is no development in the characters, excluding Legolas's and Gimli's budding friendship (consisting of maybe three lines of dialouge per chapter.)

Even now I question why sole reason for reading it: The movie was coming out and I wanted to be able to compare and contrast. Don't spend your time. P.S. A BIG thank you to the filmmakers behind the movie. The manage to turn out a great film from a tereible book.

You'll see reality in another way


The work Tolkien has done with this book should make us see how a human can create a world where every language in it has its own grammar, where all characters which appear have their onw linage and where everything in it can be accurately explained by reading other books of the same. Landscapes and places are treated with such an elegance and perfection that you can really feel the humidity, the darkness or the morning wind touching your face. He has done of a week and small creature the heroe of an epic fantasy novel and has avoided using the usual strong and intelligent one. It's certainly the masterpiece of a literature master. What I admire of this book is everything, maybe because I firstly read others of Tolkien such as the hobbit (indispensable if you want to fully understand the LotR)and the Silmarillion. It's not appropiate for an under fifteen boy to read it as he would find it boring. I would recomend it to those who are keen on fantasy and that would pay for living in another world where strange creatures and places existed.

A Whole Different World


I'm not one who's much for fantasy, or I should say thought I wasn't. But, all the hoopla over the movie had me curious as to what is so intriguing about a bunch of mythical nonsense. Anyway, Tolkein starts off the story as can be expected, with a LOT of detail and character development. This seemed to drag on until at least the middle of the book with moments of excitement in between. I almost tossed it a few times at this point. Luckily when I did arrive to the later half and the begining half of the second book, it made it all worth while. I can honestly say that few other books have gripped me like the story has so far, and I can't wait to finish it up.

The Lord of the Rings (Leatherette Collector's Edition)
The Shakespeare of High Fantasy


There are a select few writers of High Fantasy who tell magnificent stories, paint striking landscapes, populate their worlds with unique and fully realized characters, and tell their tales with a humbling mastery of language. I am a harsh critic, and count this small group (while recognizing their flaws, as all writers have) as being: Stephen R. Donaldson, Robert Jordan, Tad Williams and George R. R. Martin.But towering above them all, as surely as Shakespeare towers over such masters as James Joyce, Nathaniel Hawthorne, William Faulkner, etc., is J.R.R. Tolkien.LOTR is in a different class than all other so-called contenders to the throne. It is a classic, and is the only work of High Fantasy to be universally recognized -- that is, outside the realm of fantasy -- as one of the greatest books ever written.If you have grown up on Brooks, Eddings, and more recently Goodkind, you may be disappointed (note that I did not include them above!). Do not expect to be wowed on every page, or to have magic thrust upon you at each turn. Tolkien's magic and power is in his words. He needs no special effects to tell his story, and that is what raises him above all the rest. He demonstrates restraint that very few writers would be courageous enough to attempt today -- at least if they were interested in selling books.But take this into account: The Lord of the Rings is *still* selling today, more than forty years after its first printing. It is on every bookshelf of every major bookseller in America. He did something right. Read it, and find out for yourself.
