Coming to the point, I have been trying to read The Lord of The Rings trilogy for a long long time. For at least the past five years I have been taking that book from the library every six months or so and returning it after a week without having moved beyond a few chapters. This coming from a girl who finished Inheritence in less than 8 hours.
It's really frustrating. I tried everything to make me read it. I even tried skipping few chapters. No use.
Last year as a last resort I watched the movie in hope that it will motivate me to read. I was only half way through the first part, it just made me stop wanting to read it or watch the rest of the movie. It's all because of the fellow playing the part of Frodo. I didn't like him one bit. All attempts to read the series was abandoned.
Last week I somehow managed to restrain my unexplainable hatred towards the Elijah wood and finished seeing the Trilogy. It was a very difficult task. But worth it.
Apart from the scenes he appeared the rest of movie was very good which means the book would be infinity times better. I think I ll give it another chance. Especially to check out how Aragorn and Legolas really look like. I am writing it here to make sure I do it. I give myself till the end of the year to complete this task.
