This site is under major construction, but
I intend for it to be the biggest of them all, within time!
Soon I'll be adding subpages to this page,
Mainly to try give new fans, or possible fans, an insight to the great
stories they're getting into.
All that is Gold does not Glitter...
those who Wander are lost...
that is strong does not Wither...

shall be blade that was Broken...
again shall be King...

Author of the Best Books of All Time
JRR Tolkien Is the author known
worldwide for writing the Epic histories of "Middle-Earth". A land that
wanted us to think of as our world before
recorded history began. Tolkien's 3 major books,"The Silmarillion". "The
And "The Lord of the Rings" are three of
the most enjoyable, interesting, well thought out, and overall incredible
books that I've read and I truly beleive
that JRR Tolkien wrote the best literature ever when he wrote these stories.
The Books of JRR Tolkien offer Us a new history
for the World as we know it. Tolkien stated once that "All the major groups
of Europe had elaborate and amazing myths and histories, but Britain had
none" so Tolkien did what noone had done for Thousands of years, and created
history from scratch. When He was injured in World War I and had to spend
months in a recovery clinic, Tolkien began to scribble down short stories,
it was these stories that Eventually became the Backstory of the Lord Of
the Rings, and The Silmarillion itself.
Later in Life, when Tolkien had Children.
He often told them bedtime stories, one of the stories began "There once
was a hobbit who lived in a hole in the ground", and that was the beginning
of The Hobbit, Tolkien first book, which was meant for children but ended
up being read mainly by adults. After the success of The Hobbit,
publishers asked Tolkien to write a sequel, So he began working on The
Lord of the Rings. It took many years to write, but it is truly an amazing
book. The first third of the the book (Called "The Fellowship of
the Ring") is alot like The Hobbit, more childish and not very serious,
But in the beginning of the second part (Called "The Two Towers") The book
becomes much more mature. Until finally (In the 3rd part, "The Return of
the King") The book really becomes an edge of your seat reader, I always
found that I would read "just one more page".
The Story has an amazing Climax in which
the 3 stories that are going on at once all converge into one amazing few
During the last years of His life, Tolkien
worked on converging all his backstories for the Hobbit and LOTR into one
Unfortunatly, before he could completely
finish this, JRR Tolkien Died, leaving his Son, Christopher, to complete
Editing the book that was later published as "The Silmarillion" two years
after Tolkien's death.
Christopher Tolkien has in the past 10 years
given us "The History of Middle Earth" series, including now 11 books I
think, that really elaborate on all the stories and issues of The Silmarillion
and The Lord of the Rings. and Also the book "Unfinished Tales".
Tolkien's histories are still alive and well, infact a new online game
called "Middle Earth" is being released soon, and the fact that you're
reading this just proves that fact that JRR Tolkien has given us one of
the best Histories of all time.
Story of time from the Music of the Ainur to the End of the First Age of
A book That I would compare to the Bible,
and my personal favorite book, one that i'm constantly reading. An example
of the scale of this book is the name of the first chapter, named "Of the
Beginning of Days". and Even before this is a short story called
"Ainulindale", the story of the creation
of the Universe by Eru "The one" and the Angelic beings called "The Ainur",
and how the most powerful of all the Ainur, Melkor, generally fell from
grace and became Tolkien's equivalent of Satan.
The Story Goes on to Eventually tell of the
Story of how Melkor Betrayed The king of the Noldor Elves, Finwe, and his
children and Grandchildren, and Stole the greatest treasures, 3 heavenly
gems called The Silmarils. Made by Finwe's first son Feanor. The Noldor
persue Melkor back to Middle-Earth, And the majority of the book deals
with the Struggle of Elves and Men against Melkor and his armies, and as
Tolkien himself puts it....
"Hopeless Dispite great Heroism, against
the greatest of Foes."
This book is so Incredibly amazing that it
is Impossible to summarize, If you enjoy reading or history, I would Really
recommend you buy This book.
