^^I read an excerpt of it. I'm going to be reading it sometime for my outside reading book in my lit class. It was pretty funny, the part I read.

It's a really great play, funny and philosophical. Way better than Hamlet
I really enjoyed that play. It was very witty and had an interesting edge to it.

Empire as you can probably tell, I'm on a bit of an Orson Scott Card kick...I've now officially read every short story, novel, novella, and bonus chapter for the Enderverse.


OH! The second Pastwatch book is coming out soon. I'm so excited. Am I the only one who likes Card's Pastwatch series?

The Hobbit (or There and Back Again) by J. R. R. Tolkien. Figured I should give it a shot since most of the series I like are either still in progress with the latest installment or are finished. I have obviously confused Bilbo for Frodo (from what little I've seen of the movies) but now that I'm reading the books and did some online research, protagonists have been cleared up. :lol: So far, I've found that the series is far more interesting than I thought it would be. Here's to a new interest-series, hopefully.

I just read The Hobbit this summer, and it was really good. But I haven't really seen the movies, aside from small clips while flipping channels, so I wasn't too confused. One of my suitemates just happens to be really into LoTR, so I'm borrowing the rest of the series from her. :D It was definitely more interesting than I thought, too, but I had had a lot of people tell me that I had to read it, so I did. :D

You know, no one ever recommended the book but I knew it was a popular series. I can see why. It ranks with Harry Potter, to me. I had always seen pictures of Frodo, but I didn't know his name so that's how I confused him with Bilbo, until I read the part where it said he's fifty-five years old. Looking at the images and the age, I knew I was wrong! I hope my library has the rest of the series because I'd have no one to borrow copies off of.

^^Well, by the time Frodo starts out for Rivendell, he's 50 years old too. 50 is the new 20 for hobbits. I can see vaguely why you'd get them confused if you haven't read about them before.
