A nice adjunct to reading Tolkien's books. If you have questions, the answers have been prepared and are easy to find...what happened to Sam after LOTR, the names of his children and when he went west after Frodo...etc. For those with packrat minds.

Written as an encyclopedia of everything in Middle Earth, we read this cover to cover (probably not the intended method). This way, we were repeatedly given the various important stories in the Tolkien world until we knew them thoroughly. More maps would have helped sort out what was what.

Though it appeared shortly before publication of The Silmarillion, and so was inevitably superseded, this book deserves recognition as the first serious attempt to catalogue Tolkien's world. It is thorough and readable, and although occasionally inaccurate (e.g. in the genealogies of the Eldar and Edain), it avoids speculation and invention, and was, in its day, a very useful handbook to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The decorated capital letters at the head of each section are beautifully drawn. MB 19-viii-2009… (més)

If you're looking for a comprehensive reference for the works of Tolkien so you can navigate the world of Middle Earth easily, this is it. Have this close by you when reading the tales and you will have a more informative and enjoyable time of it.
