That’s a really good point, actually; your local library might have an English copy.
The general consensus seems to be to give it a go in English! Pick up a cheap/free copy if you can, in case you do feel like you’re struggling and you want to switch to the translated version. Apparently not too much is lost in translation so you wouldn’t necessarily be missing out. Best of luck, and let me know how you get on :)
I get the feeling that you would be able to read them in English without too much trouble— maybe you’d have to look up a word or phrase occasionally, but it shouldn’t be too challenging?
I’m gonna open this one up to the followers as well. Do we have anyone who has English as their second language but has read LOTR in English? How did you find it?
