A nice little insight to the world that J.R.R Tolkien created and how it came to be. It's kinda making me want to read the lord of the rings.
An interesting visual aid for the creatively rich Tolkien's The Hobbit. Looking forward to see the movie. And then actually read the whole work. This small book describes how Tolkien draw the maps before and while writing the story. He argues that for such a complicated story like this, one should not wait to draw the map until after the story is completely written.
Nice, compact little book about Middle Earth. You get to kno wmore about Middle Earth and the voyage Bilbo undertakes in the Hobbit. THe map is a sweet visual aid. I'd recommend it to all Tolkien fans who want to have a better understanding and background knowledge of Middle Earth.
Slightly disappointing. A convoluted synopsis of The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings books interspersed with stories about how Tolkien made the maps of Middle Earth. The accompanying map could have saved it, but it didn't.
this was a small but sweet book about Middle earth
You get to know interesting things, you get a map over the road the dwarves and Bilbo are travelling as well.
