Is The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit hard to read?Watch this thread
I’m a literature student and everyone in my classes CONSTANTLY talk about the lord of the rings and the hobbit and I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read them, but I want to. I’m a bit intimidated by them and I’m also a bit dyslexic and I was wondering if anyone has struggled to read them? In terms of writing style and things like that.
LOTR more challenging as it is long plus some of the names are made up, so lots of people might find them strange dyslexic or not.
You could ofc watch the films or listen to the audiobooks.
The Hobbit film was dragged out so differs quite a lot from the film. The first 30-45 mins of film 1 is really dull.
Andy Serkis did a read through for charity.
Alternatively, the Hobbit is an easy read because it is aimed at a different target audience and so the language is more relaxed.
The Silmarillion? Yes.
