    It is. Classic sci-fi and the author is probably my favorite Mormon.
    “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 orcs.”

    I don't crave risk and adventure like I did in my teens.

    I am perpetually on an interior design adventure.

    I think I gave up after the fourth book or whichever one where the guy turned himself into a sandworm. I have a pretty strong tolerance for weird, but I guess that's where my line is.

    Oh, I liked those sequels. I was talking more about the ones written in recent years by his son. You left the series at an interesting turning point. It turns first book on it's head, but for good reason.

    I'll have to add it back to my to-read list, then. There were so many it got overwhelming and I wasn't sure where I was in the story. I do read long, heavy, epic genre fiction, but if I can't see where things are going, I'm likely to give up and pick up something shorter and funnier.
