Not as easy as Fellowship... blah.
I still love the story, but did we really have to put ALL of the stuff in the west in the first half and make the second half ALL ABOUT FRODO?!?!?!? UGH!!
That whole thing would have been so much more tolerable if it had been in 15 page chunks.
Though, I must say, the section with Faramir was all the more lovely after how the movies butchered his character.
I especially love the spot in the book where he basically says, "Look, Boromir was my brother, and I love him, but it's okay, I know he was kind of an idiot."
Soooo many things that I desperately wish had made it into the movie, and soooooooooo many things that I wish hadn't been.
Probably the hardest of the trilogy to read, (slog, slog, trudge, trudge, slog) but it's not like you can skip it, lol.
