The Road To Middle Earth by Tom Shippey

by stephenpalmersf

Thorough, fascinating and readable investigation of the themes, background and the personal challenges of Tolkien writing The Lord Of The Rings. Shippey often appears on Tolkien documentaries, and this book supports that – he knows his stuff and is never less than articulate, opinionated and interesting. Really enjoyed this one.
