The guys in my family LOVE The Lord of the Rings movies so I was interested in reading J.R.R. Tolkien: The Making of a Legend. However, as someone who isn’t overly interested in the movies, this book was way too detailed for me. It is very well written and VERY detailed so for those who want to know everything about Tolkien’s growing up and schooling years – this book is for you. It almost goes so far as to tell you the color of the sheets on his bed. LOL
For me, this book was very hard to read and stay interested in – there was just too much detail but if you are a fan of Tolkien, this may be the perfect book for you.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
