I agree that Kemen raises questions. It makes me wonder, but at the same time, I’m not that much of a language expert to describe exactly why.
Yeah Foundation… I like it, too - mostly. The books have parallels to Tolkien’s work in spanning so many years, and I appreciate their ways of handling that. Some of the storylines work really well. I like the Empire parts best, I think the other plot lines don’t work 100%, I feel distanced somehow, even though I like some of the characters, like Gaal and Salvor. There’s a vagueness and a lack of depth.
I don’t think I will feel the same about the Amazon series. Even though Tolkien wrote comparatively little about Numenor, the world is still more fleshed out and there will, I think, be depth. There will be choices I would not have made of course, and certainly things I will dislike, and things I will think are dead wrong, but I’m really happy they’re making this series, so yeah, I don’t want to be nitpicky at this point when almost everything is vague.
