Description

Although LoftR is a "pagan" story (no religion) it is filled with Christian themes of mercy, free will, divine mission, and hope, individual worth, and salvation.

There are trolls and massive spiders and other scary creatures but they aren't dwelt upon and they are always quickly defeated. Yet unlike Satan, we do not get an explanation of what makes Strider superior, worthy, or--more importantly--righteous. Pain and suffering are inevitable, but can successfully exist side by side with hope, joy, and even earthly happiness.If they had copied merely the sense of wonder or magnificence, then they might have created perfectly serviceable stories of adventure, but they also copied those parts of Tolkien which do not fit a well-built, exciting story--like his work's sheer length. The vivid descriptions of the Shire, Rivendell, and other mesmerizing landscapes, coupled with the charming and eccentric characters, transported me to a world brimming with wonder. I have read and absolutely relished these books a number of times, but haven't really put any effort behind understanding rather than just enjoyment.

Many corrections and edits are made to our favourite hobbits’ narrations, but as the years go by, copies of the Red Book of Westmarch start disappearing or getting destroyed. Tolkien, this epic collection instantly became a treasure trove of adventure, magic, and profound wisdom. The Eddas were long and convoluted because they drew from many different stories and accounts, combined over time by numerous story-tellers and eventually compiled by scribes. I was also very unsatisfied that John chose to stell the stories of the individual character(groups) in sets and not according to the timeline, alternating between the different POVs.R. TOLKIEN (1892–1973) is the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic and extraordinary works of fiction as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. I also think it's interesting, that he's equally good at writing these big epic-scope sequences as he as at writing really quiet ones. Most of the time, I just thought he meant "light colored" but it makes sense with all the different races of elves, not all of them have to even be white. R. Tolkien's three volume masterpiece is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale--a story of high and heroic adventure set in the unforgettable landscape of Middle-earth.
