I love anthologies and I love the Lord of the Rings movies, but I was never able to get past the first hundred pages of Fellowship of the Ring. The reason being is that it just seemed to lag on, never going anywhere and it just seeming to get mired down in history and background with no (or a least very little) hint of the why‘s and how‘s of why I should continue reading. Having said that it will be interesting to see if I like this collection of short stories set in Tolkien‘s mystical world. And yes I do plan on one day re-visiting the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
