Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Guide to Tolkien's World is a scholarly, definitive, and enchantingly beautiful reference to all the living creatures — both flora and fauna — that inhabit J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth and Undying Lands. It is complete with descriptive text, both black and white and color illustrations, maps, a chronology, and a special index referring readers back to Tolkien's original works. All 129 races identified are clearly explained in terms of their physical appearance, language, behavior, and culture.

Table of Contents

A map of Middle-Earth and the Undying Lands — A chronology of Middle-Earth and the Undying Lands — A chronology of the kingdoms on Middle-Earth in the Ages of Sun — A bestiary of the beasts, monsters, races, deities and flora — Genealogies of the races and kingdoms of elves and men — Index of principal sources — General index.

Day does an excellent job of explicating some of the intricacies of Tolkien's world, particularly the convoluted mythology of The Silmarillion. I'm not a big fan of the artwork in this book, though, which makes the whole thing only halfway successful for me.
