Inderjitsanghera: It may just be, that our Princess_Lùthien is new to the internet; and as I read her post, it was only the movie that brought her to the book in the first place. Please cut her some slack.U just found about that now? Every Tolkien fan has been going on about it for a year now.
Many of the Tolkien fans around here, have also decided to cut PJ a little slack, and are just happy that the parts of the books he has retained have been so well done. We feel PJ is just telling the same story through a different set of eyes and ears from that which Tolkien used when he wrote the book. That doesn't mean we don't/won't grouse about the changes when we find them, but doing so won't make much difference in the long run. And PJ's story is still good, even if it can never rise to the level of old JRRT's.nn[Edited on 10/11/2002 by Grondmaster]
