I've been reading this and loving it, seeing as the old epics are my favourite genre. Does anyone have thoughts?

It's pretty cool. "Hold up" is a bugman term btw. We're talking art, not technology.

I enjoy it. The first book describing the creation of the world is a little dull for me because it reads like Genesis with the names shuffled around a bit. Once the elves awake and Morgoth starts ruining everything and FĂ«anor gets too big for his britches I get more interested.

I've read it 3 times. Second and third read were much more enjoyable.
Also don't concern yourself with the extend that a book "holds up" and other nu-age critique methods

It is good, but basically retelling of the Kalevala. Cannot honestly enjoy it anymore considering it is just a ripoff
