This is my joint review of Lord of the Rings and Moby Dick...
I have suffered for my art. I have attempted to read LotR and Moby Dick several times. Without success. I am somewhere (10 years after a long-expected party) at the Black Gate, and reading through some one's affidavit, I don't know who's, in the tale of the whale (at last count this has taken upwards of 3 years). I'm unhappy to report that these books are really, really, really, really long. Really.
As a counterpoint I present this succinct review and may I one day finish them.
That is all.
