Great story. Dragging dialogue. Flow of story bidden down by endless, entwining histories and details. Movie was better. But movie couldn't have existed without the book. Don't care if what I'm saying is 'heresy' by Tolkien-heads. I'm absolutely in love with the story. The one-volume is much easier to read than the 3 books. Especially because it was meant to be read as one novel; which contains 6 books, not 3 (post-world war II paper shortages had Tolkien publishing in 3 volumes).
