Why did I love this book?
It is a series that is altogether other-worldly. The lengths Tolkien went to imagine and create a world of this caliber speaks a mere shadow of what you actually read. I strive to bring these depths to reality in my own series. As a reader, I need to be fully transported, and this series does just that like no other work of fiction can. It is the original by which I rate all other works. Read it, and be transported. Soon, you will realize that your barista doesn’t speak Elvish.
