Poll: The Quickly Aborted 1960 Hobbit Rewrite...Missed Oppurtunity or Depressing Mistake?
Missed Oppurtunity
Depressing Mistake
A bit of Both
There isn't really enough of it published to make a fair judgement
Since it was written privately in old age, quickly abandoned, and unknown and umentioned (even in his biorgrahy) for decades after his death was it really something that serious?
I haven't read it
It would have been interesting to see it progress a little longer
Loved reding it, but It wasn't The Hobbit
I have no strong opinions ethier way
It would have been nice to see The Hobbit and LOTR link more fully

I would have loved a complete re-write. [In reply to] Can't Post

But with much deeper changes than what Tolkien seemingly started to do.

Never cared much for TH as a book at all... simply read it too late when I was already deeply into LotR and the Sil and never was able to make myself ready for a children's novel. Maybe this will change once I have kids or am a godfather and can introduce them early on to the world of ME via TH.
