Post-Antaragni Hobbit-hoppings

Yesterday was a very quiet day. Very quiet and pleasant. It would obviously seem all the more so after Antaragni.

Today would also have been a quiet day if I had not just come to know suddenly about the 10% quiz which was to be popped on us tomorrow. That took away quite a lot of calmness and certainly all the pleasure 😀

Thankfully, it didn’t transpired to be so, and quiz was postponed. At least we are good at something ;). By the way completed The Hobbit yesterday. Man! what a marvelous novel. I totally underestimated it back then. I remember I had given it three stars out of five at Goodreads some times ago, when I had just started it. I can see now that I was so wrong and its good I was wrong :). It deserves 4 stars at the very least.

It was extremely delightful and I can see that with Tolkien‘s language, one can relish a fantasy even more than when presented with audiovisual imagery.

That lays the perfect ground for starting The Lord of the Rings. But sadly that doesn’t seem to be the case, as it’s too huge a beast for me to take on directly right now :D. I’m in a pacific mode nowadays and won’t enjoy much grappling with giant monsters of books ;). The Silmarillion looks an attractive option, I might try it. It also is quite handy size, if very complex. Hmm, so it shall be. I’ll have to pick out a long stretch of free time to complete the mammoth LOTR trilogy.

Ciao 🙂
