He would then ask me if it's really a good idea to read a book to my siblings which is written with such crude language. I don't think he believed me that it's actually very well-written and has lovely flowing language, but this character was meant to sound rude and uncreative.
Oh goodness! Sometimes my parents would question why I would read things or show things to my brother. Never about LotR, though. They've both seen the movies.
