May I suggest your local library. If you ask nicely, they generally will order it in for you.

I just started Lord Of The Rings (I attempted it years ago but got bored and gave it up) and I am really enjoying it ahdn_george_08 As for my motivation to try it again, all I'll say is that lot of Led Zeppelin songs are suddenly making much more sense now. ahdn_george_06

Also, Frodo Baggins is an INFP personality type, just like I am. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I used to be INFP, now I'm INTP.

I read The Hobbit and LOTR in middle school. I always thought The Hobbit was better.

^I hated The Hobbit when I read it (about 3 years ago). I should probably give it another go but ugh. Haven't touched TLOTR because of it.

I would try The Hobbit again just to see, but if you didn't like it, I bet you probably won't like LOTR at all.

I really should like it because practically all modern day fantasy is Tolkien-inspired but I'll give it another go in a few years when I've got everything else read on my bookshelves a-hard-days-night-george-10

Hey! I'm also an INFP! Though I detest The Hobbit (I over-anaylsed it in English, and fantasy isn't my thing), so I haven't attempted TLOTR.

Who here likes Lord of the Flies?

I saw a movie adaptation. It was entertaining.

*silently joins the INFP club*

Maybe I should try Lord Of The Rings once again too if it provides a better understanding of Led Zeppelin, that's a very temting prospect. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Currently I'm reading an audacity handbook I got as a present from my siblings. I absolutely love it!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

You mean the non existing INFP club because introverts are not capable of forming clubs anyway? a-hard-days-night-george-10

By the way, concerning Lord Of The Flies, I really don't like that book because my father made me read it when I was nine since it was such a classic. I got nightmares back then but maybe I should try it again once as I don't know much about the content anymore and well I bet nowadays I wouldn't find it that scary anymore.

I read it a few years and I quite enjoyed it. It was a very good character study.

For anyone who's read Hubert Selby Jr., I didn't really like Last Exit To Brooklyn- the short stories were fine enough because they were only about 14 pages long, but his long tales about Harry and Georgette, JAYSUS. Every story had to have a sex scene and for some it was suitable like Tralala but Harry giving his wife multiple orgasms, was it really necessary? Or as a debut novel, did he just want to make his 'mark' and get people to notice him? I have no problem with sex scenes in books but the fact that every story had one made it seem almost gratuitous.

I still have 'Requiem...' to read but ugh if it's similar to LXTB it'll be the last HS Jr. that I'll read.

Funny you mention that, i remember how in school i was supposed to be reading this book. Instead i just looked up the answers on the internet.

Anyways, it's not that bad but i prefer Planet Of The Apes, which is very similar to Lord Of The Flies.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.
