    Worth Looking Into

    According to the foreword, this book is formatted like the last. I'll admit, I didn't read Beren and Luthien. If you're looking for something written like the Silmarillion, look again. This is more a collection of unfinished bits, brief essays, and commentary on how the author thought his father meant things to come across. There's not much "new" information if you've already read the Unfinished Tales Vol. 2. However, I enjoyed the book immensely and don't feel that I wanted my money at all. In fact, I wouldn't mind investing in a hard copy as well.

    The Rise of Gondolin

    Last as it was first, the Fall of Gondolin is finally told to the extent that it was finished; tragically unfinished. The combination of the beauty of Tolkien's original lost tale with the amazing detail of the lamentably unfinished updated version is enough to show that this is among the greatest tragedies of English literature: Both the story itself and its abandonment. Had it been completed, it would have surpassed most everything. As it stands, it still does. Aiya Tolkien, elenion ancalima!
