  • Ah, the start of the epic trilogy. He starts rather slowly, laying the foundation of the story: a brief history of the ring, as well as a good understanding of hobbits (how they live, how they think, etc.).

  • I just re-read this one too, I remember it started slowly, but wasn't as slow as when I read it in 6th grade. The movie was closer to the book than I expected, pretty amazing.
