What can you say thats new about this masterpiece? I try to go back and reread it every 2 to 3 years, and I find that I am never disappointed, which may be as good a definition of a masterpiece as you are likely to find. Simple and complex at the same time, a tale of adventure, a classic hero's quest, I find this work superior to the sometimes overwhelming LOTR. A book that I first encountered and loved as a very young teenager, and yet still speaks to me in my fifties is a very special book indeed.
