Aren't the Tolkien comparisons getting a little...old? - 09/12/2011 09:51:39 PM 2670 Views
The comparison bothers me, but not because Tolkien isn't relevant. - 09/12/2011 10:05:22 PM 1551 Views
I agree with this. - 09/12/2011 10:21:34 PM 1574 Views

Snide dismissal that will be passed off as for his own entertainment. - 10/12/2011 04:55:43 AM 1373 Views
We get a lot of that around here. *NM* - 10/12/2011 05:18:01 AM 553 Views

Well-deserved condescension. - 11/12/2011 03:54:27 AM 1496 Views
You're sure about that? - 11/12/2011 04:20:26 AM 1733 Views

i think you shouldn't judge a whole world's school programs on your school - 11/12/2011 06:42:30 AM 1356 Views
Yeah, I'm limited in my knowledge, lol - 11/12/2011 08:03:26 AM 1380 Views
My school was...not great. - 11/12/2011 04:02:36 PM 1404 Views

If you're arguing that children should be able to read genre fiction, fine. - 11/12/2011 08:52:27 PM 1243 Views
Well, I suppose it depends on the type of genre being read - 11/12/2011 09:36:16 PM 1489 Views
How often do you hear the challenging writers mentioned at this site? - 12/12/2011 02:03:05 PM 1222 Views
Only when you, me, and a couple others write reviews - 12/12/2011 04:21:14 PM 1602 Views
Oh, it was the same as it always is - 12/12/2011 05:23:56 PM 1307 Views

*Sighs* Such is the plight of those shining few intelects... - 23/12/2011 01:15:47 AM 1406 Views
Much of the actual "Classics", that is, Greek and Latin originals, kids would eat up. - 12/12/2011 03:13:03 AM 1212 Views
Try teaching Apuleius in schools... *NM* - 12/12/2011 04:12:49 AM 677 Views
Plato is exciting, brutal and scandalous? - 12/12/2011 09:59:13 PM 1290 Views
You're upfront and honest about it; he isn't. The difference matters to me. *NM* - 11/12/2011 05:18:42 AM 724 Views
Uhh...uh... - 11/12/2011 05:34:23 AM 1325 Views

I said as much in my comment - 11/12/2011 10:20:03 PM 1287 Views
What I don't like- - 12/12/2011 04:28:55 AM 1366 Views
Why don't you name something, then? - 12/12/2011 04:40:29 AM 1309 Views
Sure. - 13/12/2011 07:30:56 AM 1144 Views
Mentioning Ender's Game pretty much shot your argument in the foot. - 13/12/2011 02:02:59 PM 1264 Views
You dismiss the entire video game medium because many games lack value. - 13/12/2011 03:59:11 PM 1388 Views
You're like the McDonald's paid advocate trying to say Big Macs are actually healthy. - 13/12/2011 05:46:37 PM 1204 Views
McDonalds food is inherently unhealthy. - 13/12/2011 06:02:18 PM 1336 Views
For the sake of argument ... - 13/12/2011 04:09:51 PM 1244 Views
Stephenson is not literature, that's for damn sure. - 13/12/2011 05:49:24 PM 1198 Views
Thank you, The Voice of Lews Therin. *NM* - 16/12/2011 05:14:42 AM 752 Views
I'll leave it up to others to define as they wish against their self-conceptions of me - 10/12/2011 10:52:54 AM 1358 Views
that's alright. I really have no desire to stroke your twit-ego. *NM* - 10/12/2011 04:36:56 PM 532 Views

As I've said in the past, I'd be scared if anyone agreed with me anywhere approaching 100% - 12/12/2011 06:33:52 PM 1234 Views

I have to agree. - 09/12/2011 10:54:06 PM 1356 Views
They're there for marketing - 10/12/2011 12:20:17 AM 1327 Views
Most of those comparisons are like that anyway - 10/12/2011 05:32:45 PM 1448 Views
Maybe if so much of the genre weren't crap derivative works it wouldn't be so common. *NM* - 11/12/2011 03:44:24 AM 662 Views
To be fair, a lot of it isn't. - 11/12/2011 04:06:07 AM 1287 Views
I suspect that if it really isn't derivative it's not being compared to Tolkien in the first place. - 11/12/2011 04:18:57 AM 1247 Views
That's true. - 11/12/2011 11:08:01 AM 1231 Views
Maybe they mean something else by using his name. - 11/12/2011 03:50:15 AM 1314 Views
When they don't work, yes. - 11/12/2011 03:18:44 PM 1291 Views
The Tolkien fanaticism gets old. And yes, for me it is unreadable. - 11/12/2011 11:37:53 PM 1296 Views
