This trilogy is awesome, but it took me three years to read it. Every morning in high school I would get off the bus with blood shot eyes and my best friend would ask me if I was high. After awhile she stopped asking that and started asking, “Why are you reading it so early in the morning?” Reading these books at 7 am is a baaaaaaad idea.
Eventually the movies came out and I was able to get a hold of who was who with the faces and would try a lot harder to appreciate the long dialogue about the leaves in trees.
After I watched the movies I would reread the books and it would take me only a week. How depressing after spending three years of my life trying to understand who every one was at 7 am.
