It would take some very clever writing to pull any of those off. Truly entertaining books, but I'm not sure how the myriad of puns would come off on the big screen. I bet someone could make a pretty good cartoon series out of it though. I'd be more eager to see "Sword of Shannara" or one of the other Shannara books turned into a movie (or movie series).Originally posted by Rollo Tomassi
The Xanth books. (please oh please oh please oh please....)
A Chore? I would wager that any series of childrens' books is probably easier to read than LOTR (tongue-in-cheek, the Narnia books are also literary masterpieces). I thought the first 50 pages of the first "Harry Potter" book were a chore. I couldn't stomach any more after that (at least it was only like 15 minutes of my life wasted . I guess we all have our own likes and dislikes. Try "The Hobbit". It's the prelude to Lord of the Rings, but it's a childrens' book.Originally posted by JEDIpartnr
I found it a total CHORE to get through those Tolkein books. I found no way to get into the story. Oh, well. Needless to say- I don't give a rat's A$s about the upcoming film. I liked C.S. Lewis' "Narnia Chronicles"... much more interesting to me!
