I'd be keen to hear what you make of it.

I enjoyed his Grail series but not as much as the Warlord series (which apparently is an option for production once The Last Kingdom has finished or Saxon series.

So far I am through Chapter 4. Took a couple chapters to get sucked in but it's a pretty good read to this point.

Finished Stonehenge. The book was good overall, the last couple chapters seemed a bit hurried though as if he wanted to be done writing.

Yup, okay. I kinda struggled through it and was glad to have finished it. I'm happy I read it but it's a once only for me.

I've finish TLotR including the appendices and have almost finished The Children of Hurin. I'll have a look through Beren and Luthien but apparently it's a bunch of poems and stuff, not the story (which I'd read in The Silmarillion). Apparently I have some Star Wars (original movies and a Thrawn) to read next and them I'm hoping I can read another Cadfael.

I am reading Iain Banks Culture series at the moment. They're quite drawn out, slow books. Can't advertise them.

Next I am planning to read Eldest (part 2 of Eragon.) I've read Eragon and hated the writing style and a lot of the cheesey content but still want to see how the story "ends".

The lightbringer series again (starting with the black prism). Can't wait for the last book.

I've read Eragon as well, tho I did enjoy it. Generation thing, perhaps :)

Would you say this collection has enough new, worthwhile material for someone who read Unfinished Tales, Book of Lost Tales, and the Silmarillion?

I'm in the process of reading SpyMaster by Margaret Weis and Robert Krammes.

I also just started Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë's, an old friend of mine told me it was a really good read. So I'm checking it out.
