Mostly Heard: "Fellowship of the Ring" by JRR Tolkien

Mostly Heard: The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien, a audio CD edition my wife checked out.

We took this with us on our drive to Kansas and back over spring break. I write mostly heard because because I took a couple naps when my wife drove.

Not much to say about this novel that you do not already know. The story does drag at times. There's long passages that reminded me of the Bible's never ending lineage of begat and beget. The movies sure had more drama and swords.

The ring riders are not as scary as the oversized men in the film versions.
