Hi! It’s finally time for myself and my friend Henry to embark upon our epic journey involving a full read through of the Lord of the Rings. I think I’m anticipating this re-read more than any other book I’ve read, or am going to read, in the near future, and hopefully we’ll be able to follow it with a read through of the Children of Hurin, Tolkien’s other, lesser known epic fantasy. We’re going to go through the book chapter by chapter, taking two to three days to read one chapter (they are long). Then we’ll both blog our thoughts here, exchanging ideas, and maybe disagreeing about things. Feel free to read along with us, and make your thoughts known!
Tonight: beginning Chapter 1: A Long Expected Party
