5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight in the writing of The Lord of the Rings, 4 Jan 2001
This review is from: The End of the Third Age (History of the Lord of the Rings; The History of Middle-Eart) (Paperback)
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.
