At first I thought this was a good book to give to people who weren t enthusiastic about reading the trilogy but then I started getting into the middle of the book and came across some big mistakes.I confess I ve been skim reading, so I may not have picked up all errors, but one that really stood out to me was in The Two Towers Chapter 6 Summary as well as the Character list where the author refers to Eowyn as the Queen and Theoden s wife Eowyn is Theoden s niece She s the Lady of Rohan and of At first I thought this was a good book to give to people who weren t enthusiastic about reading the trilogy but then I started getting into the middle of the book and came across some big mistakes.I confess I ve been skim reading, so I may not have picked up all errors, but one that really stood out to me was in The Two Towers Chapter 6 Summary as well as the Character list where the author refers to Eowyn as the Queen and Theoden s wife Eowyn is Theoden s niece She s the Lady of Rohan and of the royal house, but she s Theoden s niece, not wife Being a LotR fan my whole life, this is such a basic and big error to me it makes me cringe.Another error in the Motifs Suspicion section is that it says Gandalf rode away to find Eomer and bring him back to Helm s Deep That happened in the movie, not the books In the books Eomer is already at Helm s Deep and Gandalf brings back Erkenbrand and his forces to reinforce Helm s Deep I knocked it down to two stars because those are some pretty big and obvious mistakes to me, and I m now wondering how many other mistakes there are.I wonder if the author even read The Lord of the Rings Or, if not, who gave them the information Even if you just read the books once I would think you d know that Eowyn wasn t Theoden s wife I ll be keeping this in my book collection, but I wouldn t loan it to anyone since it s inaccurate I d say just look up summaries via Google and wikipedia, they relikely to be accurate Definitely not a substitute for reading the Lord of the Rings, but helpful as a supplement I ve read LOTR many times but this book still gave me a lot to think about I was not wild about the continued references to the Christian religion and Christ, but some of the commentary was thought provoking.However, my copy was published in 2002 and I was a little surprised at the number of errors For example, on page 106, Eowyn is described as the wife of Theoden and the answer to a quiz question on Definitely not a substitute for reading the Lord of the Rings, but helpful as a supplement I ve read LOTR many times but this book still gave me a lot to think about I was not wild about the continued references to the Christian religion and Christ, but some of the commentary was thought provoking.However, my copy was published in 2002 and I was a little surprised at the number of errors For example, on page 106, Eowyn is described as the wife of Theoden and the answer to a quiz question on page 174 is that she is Thoden s wife she s his niece On page 186 she is described as The Lady of Rohan and future wife of Faramir On page 203 she is identified as Theoden s daughter, and on page 205 Eomer is described as Theoden s son he is his nephew, and Eowyn s brother.On page 140, the Emyn Muil is called the Emyn Muir, and Sting is referred to as Sam s Elf made knife on age 159 it is Frodo s, given to him to Bilbo.It would be nice if a real Tolkien scholar would read and revise this, if that has not already been done A great book if you have already read the Red Book itself and can see through the surprising number of errors that are here I still much enjoyed it especially in what they said about Gollum and about Sam They also recognize what a pure, loving relationship Frodo and Sam had and also the spirituality of the tale Read the masterpiece itself first and then take this along as a good companion.
