I tried to read “The Hobbit” ages ago because so many people said I should read it. Not my thing. I'm not into fantasy which is weird because I loved fairy tales, still do. Might have been Tolkien and his Hobbits who messed it up but I doubt it. I think his writing isn't too bad but I'd rather read about real people with real life problems.
Needless to say, after this, I never even attempted “The Lord of the Rings”.
