    Please don’t tell him that I found the book long and boring too.

    Just be glad she didn’t say she thinks Star Wars is better than Star Trek.

    I hope they never make a movie of the Silmarrilion. That was tedious in the extreme.

    some people think that the twilight series was long and boring, and same goes for the hunger games.

    My memory of the early 70s is fading, but I thought The Hobbit was shorter than any of the Ring trilogy. I’ll leave boring up to others.

    If they did, they’d have to do do it like a documentary. There’s no one plot; it jumps from one story to another, over thousands of years.

    It is. It’s much sorter. Each person has their own measure of long and boring. I suppose some people could say it of The Cat In The Hat, and for them it might be true.

    That’s an opinion. I’ve read them all, multiple imps- even the Silmarillion twice. Enjoy them all each time.

    I’d agree that all those books were good. But I thought that the Hobbit was written for a lower age group of reader. The LOTR trilogy was to me more adult.

    True. The Hobbit began as a story Tolkien told his children. It expanded as he turned it into a book, and became darker and denser as it went on, but remained aimed at a young readership. He later regretted using the omniscient ‘grandfatherly’ narrator tone. The process continued through the Lord Of The Rings. It began simply as a sequel- a new story about Hobbits, as requested by his publisher. Note that the opening chapter is the closest in tone to The Hobbit. But it wasn’t within Tolkien to write ‘made-to-order’ sequels. It grew and grew- and took years longer to finish and deliver than anticipated. Yet this was never planned- it just evolved that way. Tolkien wrote what interested him.

    Hmmm… I read all four of those Tolkien books when I was a teenager in the late seventies and early eighties. Honestly can’t remember much about them, but I will say that the three LOTR movies were entertaining. I haven’t seen The Hobbit, though. I am not too interested in seeing that one, but my sister really enjoyed it.

    Not everyone likes the same stuff. How boring that would be.
