Y – Yeastiest Yarn – Literary Smackdown #AtoZChallenge 2016
Welcome to the second to last day of the AtoZChallenge and the letter Y. Today we wish you to vote for the Yeastiest Yarn – in other words that story which goes on and on and on and grows and grows and grows. We have two classics for you today for chose from.
- Battlefield Earth ( L. Ron Hubbard)
Now here we have epic SciFi action. The Psychlos rule earth, stripping it of all its natural resources and humans are reduced to less than 50,000 individuals, in backwards tribes. One young human rises up to try and save his planet … and try … and try … and try. This is really big book.
- Lord of the Rings (J. R. R. Tolkien)
An epic fantasy of the highest order, Hobbits need to destroy a ring with the help of a wizard, some men, an elf and a dwarf. Only it’s not that simple and what looks like a straightforward quest goes sideways and then sideways some more and turns into everyone good fighting everyone bad, with some complete lunatics thrown in for good measure. This is also a really long tale, with appendices.
