Mentioned it in another thread because I forgot about this one, but The Last Ringbearer, by Eskov, is an interesting read for someone who likes the Tolkien lore. From Wikipedia: "The novel is based on the premise that the Tolkien account is a "history written by the victors". In Eskov's version of the story, Mordor is described as a peaceful country on the verge of an industrial revolution, that is a threat to the war-mongering and imperialistic faction represented by Gandalf (whose attitude has been described by Saruman as "crafting the Final Solution to the Mordorian problem") and the elves. "

There is an English translation (official but non-commercial, because of Tolkien's lawyers) floating around on the internet.
