File Under: "Contrived", "Overwrought", "Cardboard Characters" and "Too Many Exclamtion Points!"

I’m reminded of the greatest paragraph on the internet:

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.












I’ll spoil the horrifying end of the trailer — the words “Part 1”. As if the novel wasn’t long enough.

On the other hand, anything that encourages the banskters to leave for Galt’s Gulch should be applauded.
