There are certain books I wish I hadn’t read so early in my life.
Here are some of them:
- The Iliad and The Odyssey
- The Silmarillion
I had barely turned 14 or 15 when I read all these. I certainly lacked the capacity to appreciate their full depth. (I’m not sure if I have that capacity now, at 25, to be frank.)
I suppose I get the bragging rights, but I can’t remember the details of most of these stories.
This is probably my only regret.
