I can't believe it's been 12 years since Lord of the Rings. Man, I got old.
I knows it! Entertainment Weekly did a 10 year reunion thing a couple months ago and that blew my mind!!! So excited for the Hobbit, tho I admit I have yet to read it. I stopped reading Tolkein when I tried to read Simarillion and had a whole book full of family trees because I was so lost with all the characters! The hobbit, though, I hear is more manageable.... I loved the LOTR books..
I hear ya. I'm really looking forward to The Hobbit. I'm so glad to see Ian Mckellan and Andy Serkis are going to be back. It really is much more manageable than The Simarillion and a great book. I tried to get through The Simarillion and never could either. I think I have like 4 or 5 copies of The Lord of the Rings. I never saw the 10 year reunion thing.
