Nathan Eilers Nathan Eilers said: "I read a one-volume edition of this epic trilogy, which at first I didn't like. Later, however, I found out that Tolkien meant the story to be united, but it was split up for publishing purposes. No matter.

I loved the story for the most part. The recipes, for me, got in the way. I skimmed ahead each time. Worth a read.

3.5 stars. This is a very enjoyable story. We listened to it on a road trip and enjoyed the characters and narrative. Skye is annoying, however. I look forward to reading it to Vi when she gets bigger.

Ernest Hemingway
“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
