You create something as enthralling. If Tolkien is a hack, so is JK Rowling. So is George Lucas.
first off, george lucas = teh fail. imo
JK Rowling = took Tolkien's idea and turned it into the willpower to avoid siding with he who must not be named or whatever. imo
Tolkien = wtf wants to read a book about some gay people married who get a divorce at the end because one throws the ring into the fire pit in the volcano? imo
and on that note, Christopher Paolini = teh failzorz and teh plagiarism (spelled right?) irl
onto books that I enjoy:
Amulet of Samarkand
Ptolemy's Gate (I think that's the name)
goin old school with the Fowl books as well.
the Odd series by Dean Koontz.
Angels and Demons
