The Lord of the Rings
The Lord of the Rings series is a legendary series of books that essentially started the whole fantasy book thing. Still, there are parts that drag, and Tolkien definitely padded the books with a lot of back story that we MAY not have needed. Don’t get us wrong, they’re awesome books, but Peter Jackson’s film trilogy captured the essence of the novels and made it more coherent and increased the cool factor.
