Well, my reviewers copy of the Millenium Edition arrived in the mail yesterday. Sadly, the edition that I have is the American Edition, the one without the CD. Also, the United States Post Office mangled the box it came in… Oh well. I will post my review of the CD when my UK edition comes in.
I can say so far that the coolest thing about this edition is the new titles. I am thankful that the title for The Two Towers has been changed back to its original that Tolkien wanted. As a matter of fact each book has a separate title. I will spend the weekend going over this new edition with a fine toothed comb, and I will also have someone write a review for this wonderful new edition.
Also in the gift package was a copy of each new paperback edition for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I will also be getting these editions reviewed over the next couple of weeks. After the books are reviewed we will be giving them away. Stay tuned on how to win your copy.
