You have a fair point about them all being very good.
Yes! I have read both Farmer Giles of Ham and The Smith Wootton Major. I liked farmer Giles of Ham best of the two, though it pretty much infuriated me. I am a very firm pacifist, and seeing how the dragon was treated was just awful. However, after a lengthy debate with a friend of mine, we figured that that was Tolkien’s intention, and I was allowed to love it while being infuriated.
What’s your take on Farmer Giles of Ham?
Also, sorry for such a late reply. Life has been a lot recently haha.
