Depends what you want from a book. 'The Lord of the Rings' is mythic it addresses fundamental questions in a dreamlike narrative, with all the gristle removed. It's the Disney version. 'The Song of Ice and Fire' is steak with the hair on, it addresses big questions but revels in ambiguity, it's a worms-eye view. The Quentin Tarantino version.
