I haven't (yet) read The Lord of the Rings, an admission that more than once has provoked an incredulous, "You haven't?" There go my literary pretensions-often it seems, even to me, that to be unfamiliar with the work regarded by many as the novel of the 20th century is unconscionable. Still, something about the project has made me put it off. Perhaps that something is no more than the number of pages, but the fact remains that my taste for fantasy is underdeveloped.
