Synopsis: Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.
Own opinion: As a Tolkien fan with the LOTR- movie trilogy as my entrance to the epic fantasy genre, I’ll enjoy seeing how the professor’s experiences forged the Middle-Earth lore.
Definately A MUST for a wider audience.
