Interesting.  This comes out tomorrow and I hadn't heard a whisper until today.

I remember picking up The Silmarillion when it first came out.  I was a total Tolkein geek and was overjoyed to have something new to read.  However, it's not exactly easy fare for a 13 year old.  LOL, I struggled.  I really struggled.

So... who's in the market for this one?

Yes, but don't stress.  I'll PM you personally when the Nickelodeon cartoon series premieres.

Same here. Lousy Tolkein thinks he's soooo big with all his fancy words.
