So, yes. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was dreadful reading as an adult. So sad.

Moving on to the so far very amazing The Vorrh. Capably written modern fantasy.

The Vorrh got really bad really fast... Very unhappy with the book. The author threw everything, and the kitchen sink, into it. Far too taken with being novel.

Next up is another one I';m quitting. The Bastard Legion. By Chapter two, the author is obviously obsessed with Spielberg turning the book into a movie. Too precious by far.

Man... Really having trouble getting back into the reading saddle. I feel like the horrible quality of LotR from an adult's POV has ruined reading for me!

Diddums.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Oh, good. Found something I like!

A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe

Janky at first because it's this insane mashup of high fantasy, spell-caster bullshit in a gritty BSG sci-fi universe. So, like, it took me 40 pages to adapt to this and...now we're having nothing but candy cane fun!
