Read 3 times. Last read September 27, 2019 to November 4, 2019.

2019: I listened to The Fellowship this time through, and found that Tolkien's goal for the story rings true for me:

The prime motive was the desire of a tale-teller to try his hand at a really long story that would hold the attention of readers, amuse them, delight them, and at times maybe excite them or deeply move them.

2013: Alright, alright, I actually enjoyed it. I even sorta, kinda appreciate Frodo as both reluctant but doughty hero who is strong because he is weak (at least so far).

Sean Higgins Sheesh. What am I doing? I guess it's time for me and the kids to begin.

Leila Bowers Whoa Nelly. There is a snowball that has made it somewhere relatively warm.

Sean Higgins Uh, are you talking about Mount Doom?
