I have read this book more then ones and it is wonderful to have names and things I have no ide how to pronouns. But the one thing I discovered that was a problem was I lacked the family tree and I read the differences of the names but it is some times is hard to hear. Witch leads to my only problem whit this preferments is that the reader is not always concise about names and he dos not have a clear speech.
Terribly boring. I thought this book would give a good background of the LOTR characters, but it was just names being read out one after the other. Only for hardcore Tolkien fans !!
