I thought the final scene was priceless, something that Alan Lee should make a piece out of and sell to the fans :)

I'm not sure about the price since I got it like the first day it came out.

I finally got a copy (for about $14.00)

I agree that it was like reading The Lord of the Rings the first time, way back when, but to me, the story was a bit "broad stroked", and only got down to details here and there, compared to LotR, which was very detailed in the telling.

I liked it anyway, even though it did end in tragedy.

BK, what is the price of the book down to?


I've not read it, but have read The Silmarillion. The ending is dark dark.
