In the novel The Return of the Shadow by JRR. Tolkien, it is an excellent history to The Lord of the Rings. It gives you the original ideas and thoughts of the author being a manuscript. It is a tough book to read with a lot of different things about it such as names and places. The book also gives you notes so you can reflect on the finished version of the books. It is a very detailed book with a lot of description and adventure. It revolves around the life of "Hobbits" which are little people about half the size of humans. They go on an adventure, which has a lot of scary parts where the characters are in peril. They are eager to go on the adventure and will not give up. The book also tells you a lot about the older family that have passed away and the relations between the characters.
This book is for people who have a lot of time and patience. It is a great book but is a little confusing in the beginning until you get the hang of the context. It has a lot of complicated and confusing ideas and concepts. I suggest this book to older kids and adults. People who like the other Tolkien books would like this book. Have fun reading.
In preparing this volume (and the others in the series) Christopher Tolkien has permitted us access to the inner workings of his father's thought, as the story which ultimately became "The Lord of the Rings" gradually evolved and took shape.
Any aficionado of "The Lord of the Rings" will delight at the early character portrayls of characters like Farmer Maggot and Treebeard (and not the least, Trotter the hobbit whose character ultimately morphs into that of Aragorn).
This book is also highly recommend for any student of language and literature and any budding novelist.
Thank you, Christopher, for your labor of love on behalf of your father.
