The delivery of the pdf was very fast (even during the weekend). The pdf looks gorgeous and it contains all the useful information for character creation with the newly introduced cultures. The new rules for Journey and Shadow are also particularly nice and in theme with the Tolkien setting. I am eagerly waiting for the Loremaster's Guide.
Overall, I am very pleased with it.
One minor technical criticism, it would be nice it the table of contents had hyperlinks to directly go the different sections.
