Product Description

Product Description

From the twisted mind of a self-confessed Fantasy Freak comes The Lord of the Grins. ‘Nights spent in oblivion surrounded by El Vino left scribblings on my notepads. Only when I awoke and read them did I realise the full horror’ says the author U.R.R Jokin. Jokin was born on a mad March day in 2525 (by The Snore Reckoning). His unlucky parents tried at first to give him away, failing that they tried selling him for scientific research. Luckily for him an alien being stole him from them one night and took him to another planet, where he now spends most of his time. He has been a tinker, a tailor, a soldier, a poor man and hopes that you will all make him a rich man (which now makes him a beggar man). His love for the works of a certain Prof started at school as a 10yr old, where they enacted one of his books as the school play. He wanted to be one of the dwarves but they had already chosen them all from the more talented kids with rich parents, so he started on the long road to parody and invented a dwarf of his own, it’s name was Truant, and he played it really well. On leaving school he spent nearly a quarter of a century in The British Army, this did nothing to alleviate the madness. He now works for ASDA (a part of WAL-MART), further adding to his unstable thought patterns..

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tolkien joke almost every line. 21 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is easily my favourite parody i have read on the fellowship of the ring. The names places and even the background have been thought through with great detail to create a comical world. It helps if you know of Tolkien's other works to get the most out of the jokes as i am sure i have missed many yet still my sides ache from the laughter. At this price and if you are a true fan of the books - this is worth a try. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did. Looking forward to the follow on!!! :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Bored of the Rings 2 Mar 2012
By Marc
Format:Kindle Edition
I was lucky enough to meet and talk with Mark many times in the very early, formative stages of this work. His knowledge, understanding and love of Tolkien's work and world shine through in the man and in this, soon to be, trilogy of 4 (or something).
This isn't a book of poorly thought out, derogative name changes. It has genuine original humour with very clever references to the masterpiece.
If you only ever read one book in your life, then read Lord of the Rings. If you are going to read this. Seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monty Pythons meet Carry On 21 Feb 2012
By Parker
Format:Kindle Edition
Monty Pythons meet Carry On, the wordplay and double entendre are amazing, the puns come thick and fast, I laughed all the way through. If you have read Bored of the Rings, then you should read this, because this is the modern version. Having read most of Tolkien's works I recognised the depth of that knowledge required to write this, the author must know a great deal about what he has done this parody on, which I suppose must make him a huge fan of the originals. I wait eagerly for the next book, for laughter is scarce in our world.
