The story is terrific! I have always been a fan of the old legends, including the Sigurd/Siefried sagas. I am afraid that many people may be turned off from this book, especially if they come to it seeking more Middle Earth. However, true Tolkien fans will enjoy it greatly, as it reveals more of the influences and ideas behind Tolkien concepts.

Always in for a free book
I have received the deluxe editon just a week, but I haven't got time to read it... I have almost examinations, you see, so Tolkien has to make (a little) way for some time...
Is it good? (the book Sigurd and Gudrún, I mean)

By the way, thanks HoughtonMifflin!

I did like the "flogging a dead Norse" turn of phrase. The reviewer also captured a bit of the positive flavor in Tolkien's verse. I think the only real valid point to take away from this particular reviewer is that this book will not appeal to the same part of the brain as the PJ films did - big shock there.

I think this requires a post where I'm not grumbling about something or being generally negative??? Happy Thursday, everyone!

Mark Sanderson is the one who should be flogged.
