Agree on RotK...

... actually, I think Bot5A encompasses more than RotK ever did (and gives less away).

I always wished the publisher back then had used "The War of the Ring" for books 5 & 6 of LotR.

Might seem strange for non-German speakers, but partly I am glad for this change because I hate the German "There and Back Again" ("Hin und wieder Zurück") and love how the German term for Bot5A ("Die Schlacht der Fünf Heere") sounds. One of the very very very few Tolkien terms that have a better flow in German than in English imho.

“All good stories deserve embellishment."

Praise is subjective. And so is criticism.

"I am afraid it is only too likely to be true what you say about the critics and the public. I am dreading the publication for it will be impossible not to mind what is said. I have exposed my heart to be shot at."
