This review is from: J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography (Paperback)
Have been asked to review this book and am half way through...would love to book a whole weekend away from normal hustle and bustle, so that I could read this in one go! What an amazing life; lost count of how many times JRR Tolkien moved and have only reached his 33rd year! Fascinating and well written so far, am sure the next half of the book is just as good. Have discovered where he got his inspirations from but wouldn't spoil it for anyone...as a teaser, I now know how/where a Smeagle type character and other Hobbit/TLOTR type characters made their debut in JRR Tolkien's writings! Worth every penny for anyone interested in or studying author or his books, as details seem to come from reliable sources (family and diaries/notes).
