5.0 out of 5 stars 'In a hole in the ground lived a hobbit', 11 Jan. 2002
I just wish it was my blank page in my english exam that Tolkien wrote those infamous words. These have begun a journey which all Tolkien fans have followed. Tom Shippey has the ability to approach the Tolkien books differently and at the same time answer many of those ideological doubts. My view of Boromir is different now and of Gollom where upon I am more sympathetic. This book binds the writings together and gives an excellent understanding of Middle Earth.
