    I endorse the idea of reading the book again! I'm only on p. 32 so you can soon catch up with me. ;)

    If German, then please the Margaret Carroux translation, as she did this together with Tolkien, so it's very close his original.

    We all know that there is absolute no other one. My eyes turn yellow when it comes to this.

    @Star Dude Tolkien, as a philologist, spent a lot of time on the translations of his works into many languages. This is brought out in "Letters".....one of the funniest letters is about his efforts to assist the translation to Swedish. Some of the words/concepts in his books don't translate too well into Swedish....
