Am sure many people have heard of Lord of the Rings (LOTR) trilogy, movie made famous by Peter Jackson. But before the movie came the book, by J.R.R Tolkien. Who is this author? How did he come out with ‘middle earth and its inhabitants’?
Autobiography of J.R.R Tokien by Mark Horne tries to summaries his life and where the influence for middle earth came about.
It is also Tokien’s Christian faith that made him one of the greatest writers of his generation. Tokien’s life was not easy and he came out from the school of hard knocks. His writings only became famous when he was already/almost retired. Probably due to his young life, he was more private then the likes of C.S.Lewis.
I would recommend this book to budding writers and fans of LOTR. Perseverance and never give up attitude will get us some where.
In my opinion I give this book a rating 5 out of 5.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze bloggers program. I was not asked to write a positive review and thus, the book review is 100% my own opinion.
