I am a long time Tolkien reader and addict (since the age of 12 in 1969.) Most of the time I do not care for Tolkien "criticism" and "literary analysis", which to me seems to suck out the magic, but Lobdell's work is different. The World of the Rings enhances Middle Earth and intensifies the love I feel for it.
I also really appriciate that Mr. Lobdell doesn't dumb down his language for his reader. When authors dumb down their language, I always have a feeling that they're talking down to me (which I don't appreciate). In this book, where a big word is meant, it's used, and it isn't substituted for a smaller, dumber word. As a result, I feel like I'm being "talked" to, instead of "talked" at.
