an absolutey amazing read!!!, 12 Feb 2004
An absolutely amazing read for anyone even remotely interested in middle earth.
It provides such enormous detail about so many places mentioned in the lord of the rings, the hobbit and the sillmarillion like Bag End, Minas Tirith, Beorn's House, Thranduil's Halls, Lothlorien and Cirith Ungol as well as lands in the east and south only mentioned in the ambarkanta, painting a wonderfully vivid picture of the lands envisaged by tolkien from only mere sketches or long drawn out passages.
Anyone producing even a nithe of Karan Wynn Fonstad's work is truly worth acknowledging. Even a glance through this book will have you pouring over it for hours!!!
