So what you like so many here are saying, is that every story is the same, and so just read any story. In fact, why read Tolkien's work at all, they are just stories and there are plenty of others out there.

You are saying that no story has any merit to differ it from others ... any story will do.

Well, I am sorry, but I happen to know that there is differences, and that even if you make Tolkien's work more easy to read for others, more accessible, it still has oodles of merit and is still unique enough, and still worthy of reading as opposed to something else.

LOL. Some of you are foolishly attempting to have things both ways.

P.S. I do so like a baptism of fire, with people stuck in their little Ego Bubbles. Bring it on.
