Two Books

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."



(Shamelessly swiped from Happy Catholic who posted it on her blog last year.)

LOL!

I read both of these way back in my mis-spent youth, though I was rather older than fourteen before I encountered either.

I read the one with the orcs first, and maybe that immunized me, because the other really didn't seem worth the effort.

That, or the grace of God . . .
