Really? Because thats exactly what Hitchikers guide always sounded like to me.

LOL 42, LOL BRING A TOWEL.

Yeah, nerd in-jokes are definitely better than actual literature.

Also if you want dense, barely understandable crap...if fellowship of the ring is REMOTELY like the hobbit was, get ready for more paragraphs describing the preparation of rolls than you thought you'd ever see outside a cookbook

I like detail, and while I admit Tolkien is good, he does too much of it and that's that.

From what I've been told the hobbit was the worst as far as "alright..ALRIGHT...ALRIGHT NO, I GET WHAT YOU'RE DOING, BUT THIS IS STARTING TO MAKE OVERKILL LOOK LIKE MODERATION"
