This blurb came from Goodreads.
What I came to realize is that in writing the Lord of the Rings, Tolkien was not trying to recreate what happened before Adam and since but that in the creation of his own fairytale, his faith and view of the world and why we are having this life experience, worked its way in.
As I mentioned earlier, I am a diehard fan and yet have never read any of Tolkien’s work although I have every book. I am now determined to read each and every last one, this books has shown me that I have missed out on a lot of good stuff by just watching the movies which by the way as you might know are sheer brilliance themselves.
