5.0 out of 5 stars Love it or hate it?, 4 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Bored of the Rings: 51st Anniversary Edition (Paperback)
This seems to be a book that people either love or hate, but maybe it depends on whether you read Tolkien first, or "Bored of the Rings" first.
I discovered this book by accident in someone else's library, before ever hearing about Tolkien... and loved it so much I went on to read "The Hobbit" and LOTR, and am eternally grateful to "Bored of the Rings" for pointing the way.
Sure, the LOTR trilogy is an "impressive, truly masterful work of genius and imagination," the best piece of literature in the English language if you ask me, but even so, I consider "Bored of the Rings" to be a comic masterpiece, and one of my favorite books.
I only wish they would put out another edition with the original cover illustration. A hardback edition would be nice also.
