7345

DESCRIPTION:

Here is the comprehensive reference guide for the millions of fans of the Hobbit and the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. All of the imaginary beasts, monsters, fauna, and flora of J.R.R. Tolkien’s lush fantasy worlds of the Middle-Earth and the Undying Lands are presented in more that 100 black-and-white illustrations and 36 full color paintings. A Chronology of all the historical ages, a general index, genealogies of the races of men, maps, and a special index referring to Tolkien’s original works are also included.

MY THOUGHTS:

Love this book! It breaks things down and explains them in great detail to better help in understanding Tolkien’s thought processes, character development and plot structures of his work. By reading this book, I was able to glimpse into areas of his work that normally I would have missed or misunderstood. It’s a brilliant compilation of information for writers, readers and educators alike. The vivid colors and illustrations are an added bonus.

There’s timelines, maps and charts to help with explanations. Very thorough!

I highly recommend adding this book to your resource shelves. I’m going to be looking into his other work too.

Excellent book! Highly recommended.

I gave this book:

5-star
