This is a brief but well written biography of Tolkien.   It shows how he was able to go from an obscure Oxford Professor to one of the best loved authors of all time.

I love the way this book allows us to get a glimpse into Tolkiens life and his work.  We learn The Hobbit may have been published by accident but it would become a happy accident for Fans of the Hobbit. 

I would recommend that if you are a fan of Tolkien you should read this book to learn more about how he got his start.

Five out of five Stars for a well written biography
