JRR Tolkien

JRR Tolkien is one of those rare writers that can completely transport you with his pen, a feeling I get every time I wander the Withywindle valley with Frodo and company, or breakfast upon bread and mead in the house of Beorn with Bilbo and the dwarves.

Tolkien creates out of the void a complete and fully-realized world. He weaves his spell around us, suspends all disbelief, and gives us our own modern-day adventure and discovery quest.
