How old is Cobol these days? Isn't he in his 50s?
The day Emma Watson reached legal age.
Was the same with the Lord of the Rings wotsit. As with Harry Potter; never read the books, never saw the movies. Had no interest at all. I fangirl over Batman not books for kids that got reillustrated an' were sold as the "Grown up version".Pfft, I have not been into Harry Potter since it first appeared.
I were more referring to Harry Potter with that but it was the same in the fact that I never read any LOTR or saw the movies an' never had any interest in either.Some LOTR fanboy will point it out, so it might as well be me: The Hobbit was intended for kids, The Lord of the Rings never was.
Try harder. I can read The Hobbit + The Lord of the Rings in one sitting (with the 6CD soundtrack tyvm)I've never had a problem with the Harry Potter franchise, just seen them as good fun movies. Read a few of the books and again, they were just fun. I've loved the LotR movies though and reading the LotR books is one of the things on my bucket list. many times i've tried it, all times failed.
That said, i would much rather be dragged along to a Harry Potter film than be forced to sit through more of that Twilight twaddle.
No it's quite apparent in the book, 'for the greater good' seems like something very nazi.Am I the only one who thinks that Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows is an allegory for Nazism and the holocaust?
Tolkien, a literature professor by trade, imitates the style of old english epic poems like Beowolf (on which Tolkien wrote a highly-influential paper). This sounds unfamiliar and sometimes boring to the modern-day reader. An ex of mine once wrote a term paper on metaphor use in LotR and epic poems, the parallels are countless.I personally find Tolkien to be amazingly boring, maybe I don't have a good enough imagination or smthing
