Ok so who d'ya like best?

Post#51 » Wed Jun 02, 2010 9:15 pm

Very true GP, i read the Hobbit when I was in fourth grade and gave a much too long book report on it, then in fifth grade I read FOTR, and it took me 20 minutes to read 4 pages... and i didn't remember anything. I'm relieved that he wrote a book that young minds can understand. After all, young minds are the future of the human race, might as well send them all the good messages you can before they're too stubborn to change their minds :?

Hey! :x I should take offense to that, although ... seeing as teenagers mostly (a) want to grow up faster or (b) are emos, maybe that's not so untrue. :P

Anyway, I'll add my voice to the crowd saying that we shouldn't forget that The Hobbit is a children's book, though in a way I think it's a book for all ages. Very small children can read it and be delighted at the wonder in it (I recall I was), while older people can read it and see more in the story. It's like Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia: children's books that can be enjoyed by all, without any need to make them more 'serious'.

Look, I really having nothing more to contribute to this Thread at the moment, but I am currently trying to be a kind of Odo-Virus on this Forum, this is why I'm posting like crazy. I'm also avoiding working on my book, because I'm having a can't be bothered day! You see, I'm trying to get inside the mind of a Virus so that I can understand them from their point of view. In this way I can avoid doing what I really feel I should be doing, while, as a sop, furthering Science while I'm not doing what I feel I should be doing. If I can understand Computer Viruses and learn their Language (which is a bit like Gaelic, I suspect) then I might be able to persuade them with Pure Reason that what they're doing is wrong and so maybe help them reform, which will benefit all Mankind. :ugeek:

On second thought, he probably will, but I'm not one to complain about there being more activity here. ;)

I'm trying to be an Odo-Virus! :( :( :(

(((Why doesn't anyone believe me? Maybe they're all infected with the E.I.A. Bug I've heard tell of...-(and just made up)-... that could be it! Ah! The Internet Virus Demiurge must know I'm after him! Should have known! Oh Gawd! The dreaded Eiabug has been set loose! :shock: )))

(((This may actually be a job for Pizza Man -- oh that's right -- it's not on anymore...)))

(((Maybe this should be on the Doctor Who Thread anyway? :?)))

Tuor or Turin, Turin or Tuor. One of them, both of them.
