This review is from: THE SCIENCE OF MIDDLE EARTH: Explaining The Science Behind The Greatest Fantasy Epic Ever Told (Kindle Edition)
A most intriguing and inspirational examination of Tolkien 's fictional world. Like the Science of Discworld books The Science of Middle Earth uses aspects of the stories as a rich seam of mysteries to be unraveled in the light of the latest scientific understanding. It is an enjoyable and insightful read that sent me scampering off to explore particle physics and evolutionary theory again - for much has changed since I was a student and Henry Gee clearly has his finger on the pulse of all that is current in modern science. This is a witty and thought provoking read and I commend it.
