I just finished reading The Lost Road, and am wondering how it would have ended, had Tolkien not abandoned it. Has anyone ever attempted to finish it? Despite the fact that I am not a great writer, I would like to attempt an end. However, I have not been able to figure out who Herendil is, in relation to Tolkien's other writings. If Elendil is the Elendil who came to ME, then is Herendil Isildur or Anarion (sp)? If anyone has any ideas about his, please post!
