Tolkein really only wrote two great things in his life.

  1. The chapter in The Hobbit in which Bilbo wins steals the ring from Gollum.
  2. The bits in The Lord of the Rings before Frodo leaves Hobbiton, but especially Bilbo’s birthday party and the bit where Gandalf is like “yo your ring is fucked up you gotta chuck that bitch in a mountain.”

I mean, The Hobbit as a whole is fine, but LOTR has too many descriptions of trees.
