“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
-- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
On a scale of 1 to 10, the gross out factor of this book is about a 20.
I am enjoying the story, but some of the descriptions are pretty tough to get through.
And I found a recent scene particularly disturbing based on my love for animals.
