In my last update post I said I was going to write a book review but I can’t really write a review as I haven’t finished the book I was reading.
The book in question is the Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring and I started reading this book around the end of April 2016.
There have been a number of reasons why I haven’t gotten on reading this book and what with changing of my business location, becoming a part-time house dad at the forefront of the issue but the main reason is basically I couldn’t really get into the book.
Now I’m a big fan of the movie(s) and as I didn’t read the books first perhaps this helped in my decline of the novels but it’s not the first time that I watched a move before reading a book, and one such move was Battlefield Earth and after I finished reading the novel I really enjoyed it.
A lot in the Lord of the Rings Fellow Ship of the Ring novel is really different to what is portrayed in the movie and the biggest standout is Frodo’s age but I usually can get around this and push through it. As in the past when I felt like putting down a book I managed to get on with it and by the end I was really thankful as it was a much better read than I expected.
I usually set myself a rule that I won’t put a book down but I think I might move the goalposts on this one by saying I won’t put a book down for good as long as I come back to it later.
Now I will end this post with a few questions;
1) Have you gotten to a point where you wanted to put down a book and have you done it?
2) Why did you put the book down?
3) Did you ever go back to reading said book?
I look forward to reading your answers in the comments below.
