I, too, came late-ish to reading LoTR (I was about 18) although I read the Hobbit as a child and had a rather nice graphic novel version too. I must admit I find Tolkien quite dry and his descriptions of landscapes are so boring I just ended up skipping them. Plus, the lack of female characters is tedious. I agree that Frodo is heaps better in the book.
