I received that book for Christmas! It's the next book I'll be reading after I finish the one I have now.

I've been looking forward to reading it, and after your condensed review above, even more so!

It's really, really good, Maewyn. There are some typos and missing words, meaning Sibley's publisher could have proofed it better, but it's really full of good info. and Sibley can keep a handle on the story (as shown by his excellent adaptation of LotR for BBC). But I'm serious when I tell people they might not enjoy it because LotR and its actors - while important - are not the centre of the book, and it's a BIG book. (Did you notice how heavy it is? It weighs a half pound more than a volume of HoME with the same number of pages. It must be the paper, sort of like magazine paper.)
