There are 16 bits of verse and a few tales, and all of them, to a greater or lesser degree, have the recognizable touch of Tolkien and his worlds. They are interesting and/or charming, and are certainly worth reading if you are a Lord of the Rings fan or a Tolkien completist.
My disappointment is perhaps a bit unfair. I got the impression from the Amazon description and other descriptions that we would, in this volume, learn more about Goldberry, Old Man Willow, barrow-wights, and especially Tom Bombadil himself. I have always thought of him as one of the greatest underdeveloped characters from Lord of the Rings, and indeed the entire body of Middle Earth work. Unfortunately, while these characters are present or figure in some of the verse, it is not in a way that provides any particular illumination about who or what they are. It's more like they are just mentioned in the book, not actually in the book.
But that gripe aside, and it's a pretty mild gripe, these are entertaining and interesting stories and well worth the effort of finding.
