Not impossibly so. I started reading it when I was 7 -
v. proud of ability to read Chapter Books, LOTR was
the biggest Chapter Book in the house - and managed OK
until I got to the Black Riders, had a fit of the
screaming heebiejeebies and Mum made me put it down
for a few years.

Wow. That just cleared up for me why I like the movie
better. The action is speeded up, and that pulls the
strings left over from connecting on the adventuring
level when I was a kid. That's what I like about this
list. People express things really well that I only
thought about subconsciously, if at all.
