That's like a third of my nonexistent uni savings! If I had the money though I'd buy it!

That real money they expecting at that price? Ive got that spare monopoly money! For that sort of cash I'd expect a medium to come round and channel the Professor to read it personnally.

Why don't rich people give me their money? What did I do to them that they neglect me this way?

Middle Earth Times, anyone subscribe ?

Was just wondering if anyone else thinks that Tom Bombadil and Gold Berry are actually Beren and Luthien?

INTERESTING ?

New one on me- cant say I see the thinking behind it. Tom and Goldberry are nothing like Beren and Luthien.

Wasnt actually me who thought that, i quoted somebody else. Of course if everyone had said what a brainwave of an idea
then i probably would have taken the credit for it. Sorry wasnt me i thought it was a stupid idea, Baren's feet are way to small for Toms boots. Embarassed

Well one of the main problems is Tom is the oldest and fatherless. Bit of a problem if he is Beren would you not say? A mortal man with a father and mother who doesn't come into the world until long, long, long, after Tom is already there.
And Goldberry is a Water Spirit born of a River. Not say an elf maiden with an exquisite nose ME largest florist chain and its number one singer, and a father who is a King. My point being they are rather well attested to and so are Tom and Goldberry. Why anyone would think they are the same is beyond me I'm afraid (and I appreciate that was not you Chris-whoever they are they are truely deserving of the Scottish word 'numpty'*).


* someone whose words or actions are idiotic in a manner which makes them also look like a fool. The sound of the word also implies a touch of humour. (My own definition. Dictionaries never describe Scots words right-they just translate them into an Engish equivelant without all the subtleties and shades Evil or Very Mad )

$2400???

Not bragging but I got the whole set for about £110 new (the three volume hardback editions admittedly they can be quite awkward to read/hold but it's the cheapest I've seen them in good nick)

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-History-Middle-Earth-Part/dp/0007149158/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1391033508&sr=1-1&keywords=history+of+middle+earth

etc


Were they never printed in the US or something?

I don't know. I must look out for a hard back edition of TH and LotR now we're talking about it. I gave away my hardback LotR (three volumes) about twenty five years ago in an act of rash kindness. What a dullard I was!  Banghead

Is there a version with Tolkien's own paintings/drawings?

I've got one on my Kindle with Tolkien's drawings and recordings of him reading parts of the book, but I'm not sure if a physical version with his illustrations exist. It has to, surely. Anyone know?

I wouldn't mind getting a good audio version of the book come to think. What would you guys suggest?

Rob Inglis' reading is a favourite of many:
