for the last few weeks i've been listening to LoTR audiobooks and today the chapter about Treebeard and Ents resonated with me deeply - i did not expect to cry over fate of the trees
when i had first read the trilogy back in middle school i missed most of the nuance and stayed for the cool fights and stuff, but that's fine. yet i'm glad i've grown in empathy in some ways
@tomasteck interestingly treebeards story was one of the only things that compelled me to keep reading. i raved about the ents for a good while back then.
havent touched the books in a while though, youre tempting me!
@noa i always it's my first time reading it in original language and i noticed that most things i had found boring before turned to be high points of current reread.
long descriptions of travel, surroundings and passage of time? great, i can make a mind map as i listen
elves i had always found boring, but this time something clicked, especially the lorien chapter and grief of company forced to move on
and i haven't noticed how well the rare jokes land!
