He can just about manage it but it's heavy going. I can't get him to put the bloody thing down though and read something else as it's really hard to read. What age is it for exactly? Kids book I think not!

I've not even heard of it.

grin It's (apparantly) about the world before lord of the rings/hobbit.

Nope it's not a children's book. I didn't bother with it as I thought it looked pretty inpenetrable - and I love LOTR.

How do I get it off him?

"Great was the triumph of Morgoth, though all the purposes of his malice were not yet accomplished" WWF??

I wouldn't bother. He will either decide to give it up for himself, or he will keep going and not quite getting it. Neither will hurt!

He'll keep on going knowing ds. He does get most of it but the odd word here and there needs translating for him. He's read the first couple of chapters, does it get harder from here?
