I read this book aloud (along with my wife) to my daughter for the first time. It’s still a classic, imaginative adventure that I remember. Although there are some slow and boring parts when reading to a 9-year-old. You begin to notice how tedious the lists of names and places and the songs and poems are when you’re reading aloud. Nevertheless, we had a good time reading it and are looking for to the more action-oriented The Two Towers next.
