3.0 out of 5 stars You have to be a 'real' fan., 4 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Morgoth's Ring (Paperback)
Don't be confuse this is not a JRR Tolkien story. This is a compilation of JRR Tolkien's notes, stories and rewrites set into chronological order with annotations by his son Christopher. The book does a lot to set the background about the creation of the world and the early history of the Elves. But it is more about Tolkien's writing and rewriting of the story than anything else. A lot of the tales are repeated in whole or in part to show this redrafting and revision of the text. As such it is a great book if you are a 'real' fan and are looking for a in depth feel for how the great man thought and wrote. Not a book for a new comer to Tolkien to start with, better they start with The Hobbit and enjoy the story not the writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better., 13 April 2011

While the service from the supplier was excellent I wish I could say the same for the product. Yes it does what it say's it does, a decorative wood burner. What the description does not tell you is that it comes in kit form and requires a fair bit of self assembly. For me this was not a problem and I quiet enjoyed putting it together. It was the first time I lit it the real problem showed. It leaked smoke from every joint and seam. It would benefit from some heat resistant paste or sealer that would be applied during assembly. Now I have to source some take it apart and rebuild it.
