5.0 out of 5 stars Background information for all how love LOTR, 4 Jun 2001
I read tjhe Lord of the rings the first time almost 15 years ago, and since then I have read it over and over again. But there was always the question : "How did he write it ?" Christopher Tolkien gives a perfect explanation about how his father starts writing the Lord of the Rings - You can read a lot of different versions of the farewell party for Bilbo - seeing how the story evolves and how the names were invented and choosen. So for a real fan who wants to know how hard it is to write a book - to write this book - its a pleasure to walk with Tolkien on his journey from the Shire to Bree and Rivendell ...and the road goes ever on and on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight in the writing of The Lord of the Rings, 4 Jan 2001
I am a Tolkien fan for 15 years now. I have read the Lord of the rings both in english and german many times. It was always a pleasure to go through the book and think about the hard work Tolkien had for many years in writing it. So it was time to know more about this long hours of thinking, about the different ways his story develops. These books offer a unique opportunity to follow Tolkien on his journey from "The Shire" to "Rivendell" and to "Mordor". The fascinating point is, that it is possible to join him in developing the storyline, reading different versions of the same chapter and see how his world changes and evolves in this versions. Although some might say it is boring to read 5 different versions of Bilbos farewell party it gives you a marvellous insight in the mind of a brilliant author.
