I made three attempts at reading this trilogy of books before I finally succeeded when I was about 19 or 20. But I still found some of the action hard to follow, and the characters and their motivation confusing. I was not enough of a fan to read and re-read until I had it straight, so I was never too enthusiastic, although I loved Gollum, Tom Bombadil, the Ents and of course the Hobbits and Gandalf. My recommendation to anyone who hasn't read these books is to go and see the fantastic film first, then tackle the books. I'm going to have another go at the books now I've seen the film. A word of warning though - the film isn't for the faint-hearted.
