A trilogy written by J.R.R. Tolkien, fantasy set in a place called Middle Earth, which is inhabited by hobbits and the like. While in high school in the early 70s, many of my fellow stoners were heavily into this trilogy and its precursor, The Hobbit. Led Zeppelin made references to it in a few of their songs, and Robert Plant was a known Tolkien enthusiest. This, of course, made it required reading for any self-respecting hippie, but I was strictly a poser when it came to this and other stoner sci-fi or fantasy, and after about the first 50 pages of the first book The Fellowship of the Ring, I found it too boring to read on.
In the 70s, the more cerebral stoners were into reading The Lord of the Rings.
