A Conversation for The Lord of the Rings

I can understand why some people get excited over the books but I find reading them like wading through mud. Very overrated and definitely not one of the best books books ever written.

You're right, not the best written books.
However it's the story itself and the vastness of the created world that draws people in.
Today it is often understated because the world of Orcs, Elves and Dwarfs is so prevalent in most fantasy fiction and games that we forget it did not exist at all in any meaningful fashion before LOTR.
