I loved LotR, and I loved Hobbit, and I bought this book, expecting another great story (or collection of stories, whatever). Instead, I find myself with 366 pages of condensed boredom. I dunno, perhaps I'm missing something here, but while I find it fascinating, I just can't see how anyone can *enjoy* it...
Nevertheless, if you liked the other two books, don't let my comment put you off buying it, you might be one of the people who does find it enjoyable.
