Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1969, the New York Times bestseller Bored of the Rings is back—and just in time for the major motion picture release of The Hobbit. This classic parody of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional universe is a timeless comedic masterpiece.

Bored of the Rings was an instant sensation when it was originally published by Signet in 1969 and is considered the standard by which all other parodies are measured. A send-up of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy, Bored of the Rings is as fresh and hilarious as ever. Following Frido (Frodo), Dildo (Bilbo), Goddamn (Gollum), Goodgulf (Gandalf), Arrowroot (Aragorn), and more, Bored of the Rings is the wildest, wackiest, most irreverent excursion into fantasy realms that anyone has ever dared to undertake.

     An out-of-print treasure, it will appeal to a broad range of readers—from newly minted Tolkien geeks to nostalgic boomers, who first read it in the late 60s and 70s. Now with a hilarious new Foreword, Bored of the Rings is an “all-in-one-volume” parody extravaganza and the perfect holiday gift for lovers and haters of Tolkien alike.

Synopsis:

The classic parody of The Lord of the Rings is back! With a brand-new “boreword” by Henry Beard.

The Power almighty rests in this Lone Ring.

The Power, alrighty, for doing your Own Thing.

If broken or busted, it cannot be remade

If found, send to Sorhed (the postage is prepaid).

It’s up to Boggie Frito Bugger and his band of misfits—including inept wizard Goodgulf Grayteeth, halfwit Spam Gangree, twins Moxie and Pepsi, and Arrowroot of Arrowshirt—to carry the Great Ring to Fordor and cast it into the Zazu Pits.

Can they avoid death by hickey tree and escape the dread ballhog? Can the fellowship overcome the narcs and Nozdruls hounding their every move and save Lower Middle Earth once and for all? Yes, of course—this isn’t Hamlet, you know.
