5.0 out of 5 stars The deeper we go, the better we get, 8 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Treason of Isengard: The History of the Lord of the Rings, Part Two (History of Middle-Earth) (Hardcover)
I now have all of the 'history' volumes leading up to this one and look forward eagerly to each as I get it. The histories of the War of the Rings are no exception. To be able to read about the sequences and changes that came about prior to the actual release of this astounding series of books is of paramount importance to anyone who calls themself a 'Tolkien scholar'. Having named my dog Luna Celebrin Tinuviel, I feel I fall into that category. I just wish that things were taken a little more in context with the sequence of events, rather than shifting times and going back and forth. To make two books out of the first part of the story I think is a little out of hand. Each volume of this portion of the mythologies should be handled within context of the original story - i.e., 'The Fellowship', 'The Two Towers', etc.

I find it hard to take criticism seriously from a Tolkien scholar whose credentials are based on having named their dog in Quenya.
