Subject: RE: BS: New Tolkien
They spoke about this one on the BBC news last night, but I heard only the end of the story. I know a few Tolkien fans who will check it out.

Funny how a book is criticised just because the reader might have to work to understand it. The same seems to be true of film. If it's too much work to think about it or do some research to understand it, dismiss it out of hand. The Dumbing of America (and elsewhere).
