If I was still between 17 and 30 years old, I would have definitely purchased this book.
It looks like the perfect book for a true blue Tolkien/LOTR geek.
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Thank you and indeed it is! However, I disagree on the age; Tolkien himself said it was for 30-60 if I remember correctly, and I agree.

Of course, maybe I am just attempting to justify my obsession!

Its not that an older than 30 cannot enjoy the book; but that was my intense "Tolkien" era. I bought everything I could that had to do with LOTR and Tolkien.

Understandable.
