The Tolkien Reader


It seems like I'm handing 5 stars out of 5 for all of Tolkien's works these days. In my defense, I think I'm just in "Tolkien Mode". Everything I'm reading by him seems magical and alive. The pieces in this diverse collection of his works simply feed into that. This book contains an essay, a play, a novella, a short story, and a collection of poems.

I have to say I didn't think I would enjoy this collection, as I wasn't sure I'd be interested in anything outside Middle-Earth. This book showed me that I really appreciate his writing in general. It's very warm and welcoming, even his essay.
