Bored of the Rings tells of the adventures of Frito, his `faithful` friend Spam, the wizard Goodgulf, Arrowroot the ranger, Legolam the elf and Gimlet the dwarf as they take that ring to Fordor.
Even though it only takes one volume not three, it is a long and perilous journey, for the untrustworthy companions are dogged by the doleful Goddamn and hunted by Sorhed`s fearsome minions, the Nozdrul.
Dare you follow them?
Inspired, irreverent, rude, occasionally downright silly, Bored of the Rings is, nevertheless, an always affectionate parody of the 20th century`s greatest book.
It is both laugh-out-loud funny and a tribute to the enduring powder of Tolkien`s masterpiece.
