Throwback Thursday: June 14th, 2018

I’ve decided to do Throwback Thursday but blog style. I am going to select a book I have read before and see if I would still read it.

This week’s Throwback Thursday is a fantasy.

The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)

Date of publication: October 20th, 1955

Genre: fantasy

Where you can find The Lord of the Rings: Barnes and Noble | Amazon

Did I like The Lord of the Rings when I first read it? Does the sunshine? Do bees like flowers? Are oceans salty? Of course, I liked it. Actually, I more than liked it. I loved it. I will admit that because of the age I read it, I had trouble following along. But I reread it in my teens and it became one of my favorite books of all time.

Age I first read The Lord of the Rings: If I remember right (and don’t hold me to this), I was either 12 or 13 when I first read the book. While I finished it, I had issues following it. The next time I read it, I was 15-16. I had no problem following along and fell in love with the books.

Would I read The Lord of the Rings now: Of course!!!

How many stars would I have given The Lord of the Rings back then: 12 year old me: 3-4 (see above). 15-16 year old me: 5

How many stars would I give The Lord of the Rings now: 5. One of my all-time favorite books!!!

Have you read The Lord of the Rings?

Did you like it?

Did you see the movies?

How did they compare to the book?

Let me know!!
