Lord of the Spacefem

Finished Lord of the Rings tonight. You know, there's nothing quite like spending a full month reading roughly 1,300 of a story and when you get to the end you think to yourself, "Oh. Shit, I don't get it."

What happened to "And he lived happily ever after, until the end of his days."? That's my burning question, it would have been a much happier ending, after making me feel like the entire world was evil for three books, the least he could do was make me feel like it was all going to be okay from now on. Oh well. It was still a good story, the books were better than the movie, I feel basically fulfilled.

I can't decide now if I want to read the first Harry Potter book which I stole from mum or wait a few days for my order - Backlash by Susan Fauldi - to come in. I don't think HP will take long, so I guess I can go ahead with it. In a way, it'll be almost nice to be rid of the LotR spell I've been under, it was starting to get to me (the other day I found a ring one of my girls had left in the shower and the first thought that came to me was "I've found it! My one... my precioussss..." evil!). It's normal life time again.
