    Definitely a book worth taking your time to read!

    When the author wrote this biography, she created a biography masterpiece. This biography is devastaing and intriguing and will steal your heart. The life of J.R.R Tolkien is a masterpiece of feelings and emotions. In 1982, J.R.R Tolkien was born in Bloefontein, South Africa which was once called the Orange free state. His father owned a piano buisness but didn't stay in buissness long because of going bankrupt. IN 1986 his father died leaving the family with many debts and doubts. Mabe Tolkien( J.R.R Tolkiens Mother) was determined to make a decent living for her and her family. She got some very little support from a tea club and a local church which she had joined near her husbands death. In 1904 his mother died of diabetes. J.R.R Tokien was only 12 when his mother had died. In 1904 as well as his mothers death, he won a scholarship to Oxford University and took an edvanced course in the English language. He married Edith Bratt who was very much in love with him. They were married in 1916. J.R.R Tokien began writing stories and getting them published in 1916 as well such as 'The Book of Last tales', 'Sir Gawain and the green Knight','The Hobbit','Farmer Giles of Ham,'The fellowship of of ring and the two towers','Return of the King','The adventures of Tom Bombaldi' and 'Tree and leaf and Smith of Wotton. Some people thought J.R.R Tolkien was a hero for for creating wonderful stories. In 1973 he dided while visiting one of his friends in South Africa. He suffered form an bleeding gastric ulcer. He was honored by many for his stories and all of his work. This book is distressing and rigid in certain points.The biography being based for the audience of people 7th grade or higher,even adults is definitely a book worth talking your time to read if you are interested in J.R.R Tolkien and how he lived his enticing and disheartening life.
