An A-Z of names, places and legends used in Tolkien's works, this book provides readers with that oh-so-necessary background information which only serves to make the reading of his books a richer and deeper experience. Well worth investing in!

5.0 out of 5 stars The 10th companion?, 12 Aug 2011

OK, a corny review title but a very useful book.

I'm re-reading LOTR with this book and Karen Fonstad's Atlas as references.
It's surprising how much additional depth and texture is being revealed.

I bought mine second hand for only a few pounds and it proving well worth having.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential to deatailed reads of Tolkiens books, 27 Nov 2003
By 
M. Young "Amuro Ray" (Liverpool UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
In all of Tolkiens works, including Lord of The rings, but to a largher extent The Silmirilian and History of Middle Earth, the author will make referance to a fictional creature or location in varying ammounts of detail. When reading the books it is very easy not to understand or remember the significance of a referance, or a character mentioned. Similar in sturcture to the Bible, History of Middle earth mentions peoples father and home lands that are very hard to loose track on.
This is where this excellent companion comes in. Since i have bought it i have not once read a Tolkein book without this at my side incase there are referances to places or things i have forgotten. It truely enhances the experiance of reading, and having a full understanding of Tolkiens vivid immagination. With over 70 pages and thousands of entrys this is a truly detailed companion.
