The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged

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 hobbits.

While I don’t agree with almost any of this quote, it is funny. I changed the last word because “orcs” is not as representative. This quote is 560 days old.
