This is not one of Tolkiens best books... but it has some good parts to it as well. But the whole point about this book is that it isn't a book, it's a reader. And a reader is mostly just a book put together with a whole bunch of short stories, poems, lyrics, drawings, etc. That's what this book is, a reader. Maybe to some it could be appealing, but it wasn't as interesting to me as I thought it was going to be.
Nice book for casual reading on the weekends or so though. Would recommend for a collector, but maybe not for someone who was a Tolkien fan.
