A quest, a war, a ring that would be grounds for calling any wedding off, a king without a kingdom, and a furry little "hero" named Frito, ready-or maybe just forced by the wizard Goodgulf-to undertake the one mission that can save Lower Middle Earth from enslavement by the evil Sorhed. Luscious Elf-maidens, a roller-skating dragon, ugly plants that can soul kiss the unwary to death-these are just some of the ingredients in the wildest, wackiest, most irreverent excursion into fantasy realms that anyone has ever dared to undertake.For everyone who has delighted in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy masterwork-or anyone who's just looking for a good laugh-Bored of the Rings is the "all-in-one-volume" comic extravaganza that will convince lovers and haters of fantasy that they've finally experienced it all, and that they'll never need to read another fantasy parody again.… (mais)

Bored of the Rings por Harvard Lampoon (1969)

    The Dreamland Chronicles por Wm. Mark Simmons (DovSherman)
    DovSherman: In the introduction of the "Dreamland Chronicles," Simmons cites "Bored of the Rings" as his unlikely introduction to the fantasy genre. This influence is reflected in his inveterate use of humor and pun.

Not what I was expecting. I wanted some funny inside jokes for people who read the books. Instead, it used LOTR to poke fun at other things and made it obscene in the process. It wasn't even that funny, and I found it harder to follow than the original. ( )
  afrozenbookparadise | Apr 22, 2021 |
While I've seen the LOTR movies a few times and not yet read the books, some may say: the movies are no reference, so much is left out of the books, the books are better, etc... Yes, this may all be true and one day I WILL read them. Only not now. Anyway, after having read the dystopian stories Wool and Shift (both by Hugh Howey) - part 3, Dust, is due later this year (2013) - I was in dire need of something lighter, something funny, something I didn't have to take serious (by manner of speech) at all.

Back in April I bought the Cardboard Box Of The Rings, which also contains The Soddit and The Sellamillion, both of which I still have to read. But Bored Of The Rings was first, hence...

As the authors say, this is a parody, not the actual book(s). This is the LOTR trilogy compressed into roughly 230 pages, in which for obvious reasons a lot was left out. But the original story was also twisted and rewritten with a good lump of humour. Many of it being dry humour (in some places it's dryer and depending on the presentation/use or your mood, it works or it doesn't), but I very much like that.

The lads obviously also changed the names of Bilbo (Dildo), Sam (Spam), Frodo (Frito) and so on. They also nicely mixed contemporary elements with the setting of this well-known Fantasy story, from insurance salesmen over Republicans to certain board games and vegetables and even contracts. Hell, how the fellowship manages to eat diverse breakfasts, have all those different sorts of food and drinks with them... it must be magic. :-)

I would compare this book's humour to Monty Python meets Hot Shots meets Leslie Nielsen (The Naked Gun, Scary Movie 3, ...). Or in other words: very much recommended, even if you haven't read the original books (yet). ( )

Sometimes this book reminded me of Monty Python. If you're in the right mood, it's brilliantly funny. And it's got more than it's fair share of immature potty-mouth humor and sexual innuendoes. However, the real humor kept me laughing out loud. I really enjoyed learning all the new names—Spam, Goodgulf Greyteeth, Sorhead, Stomper, and ballhog were some of my favorites.

I felt a little bit like a heretic reading this parody, though. It is just sacrilegious to see such honorable and courageous characters be reduced to such mockery. But then again, it takes a true Lord of the Rings fan to be able to enjoy this book. ( )

It's a parody/spoof; if you don't like Mad magazine or anything by National Lampoon -- don't read it. There are some really funny moments. I am a huge Lord of The Ring fan and suggest reading it in spurts versus wading in to read as a novel and getting numbed to all the humor. Then again, at time I first read, I had friends that seriously were offended because LOTR was such a holy grail for them that this book was almost sacreligious. I suspect Tolkien would get it. ( )
  Spurts | Oct 29, 2015 |
The Harvard Lampoon's parody of "Lord of the Rings," though entertaining, is quite dated. Unlike LotR, which J.R.R. Tolkien deliberately wrote to evoke an older time, "Bored of the Rings" suffers from its dated humor and references. What's worse is some of the offensive and unfunny jokes. At one point, Frito (the stand-in for Frodo in this tale) dons blackface and performs a minstrel show to escape the story's version of the Ringwraiths. This scene, and several others, are neither funny nor do they advance the plot. Had they occurred in a modern book, I would have believed the authors were trying to earn some laughs through shock value. Perhaps most unfortunate of all is the manner in which the authors condense what took Tolkien nearly 1000 pages to write into the span of 160 pages. Approximately the first 100 pages are based on "The Fellowship of the Ring" with the other two volumes represented in the remaining 60 pages. A passionate fan of Tolkien's Middle Earth legendarium may gain some enjoyment from "Bored of the Rings," but most readers will find it tiresome and unoriginal. ( )
