    No problem bro.
    I certainly hope it is, thirty years is a huge time investment on this.
    But to just get another glimpse into Tolkien's world is a treat in itself.

    Hmm, Dune was continued by Frank Herbet's son, but I found the preludes bland and un-dynamic. Hope we won't be able to say the same for the new Middle Earth book. That said, The Silmarillion was a fairly decent book, so I'm guessing this one shouldn't be bad.

    That's being generous..

    I've never come so close to actually punching a book as I did reading those.

    I'm a very generous dude.
    In truth, I never got far with them at all. I'm not a patient reader, if the book doesn't grab or intrigue me within the first 30 pages, I burn it.

    Unless that's heavily veiled sarcasm, you really are the first person I've ever met to speak positively of the preludes.
