literally kick started a genre that would eventually capture the hearts of thousands of people He changed the literary world He made fantasy real The best fantasy universe ever created Middle Earth is undoubtedly the best fantasy universe created It is the most original and richly devised It is very hard for fantasy authors not to borrow elements from Tolkien He set the definition with his wonderful world Tolkien s references to modern day are also very amusing and almost unnoticeable in the brilliant narrative but a perceptive reader will notice the whimsical contrasts he has drawn between his world and the real world The sheer depth of Tolkien s imagination is really unmeasurable I wonder what other ideas for books he may have had that he never got to write The road goes ever on and on Bilbo like the reader is blown away by the breath taking landscape of Middle Earth We must remember that he too is experiencing the majesty of Rivendell and the mightiness of Erabor for the first time His reaction reflects a reader who is also awestruck by a world that is as beautifully magical as it is corrupt and wicked it is a world in which both the benevolent and the malignant reside it is a world whose people are capable of both great kindness and eually as great cruelty The peoples are diverse and contrasting I think the differences between the elves and the dwarves are best captured in their music The music of the elves is full of mirth and is generally uite playful whereas the music of the dwarves is strong deep and full of resolve to match their stubborn nature The wonderful wonderful story This story belongs to Bilbo Baggins This is something I think Peter Jackson would do well to remember but that s beside the point The tale begins as Bilbo accidently

    Some books are almost impossible to review If a book is bad how easily can we dwell on its flaws But if the book is good how do you give any recommendation that is eual the book?
