You always hope for good reviews for your books, but you never know. Glad to see this first one for Middle-earth Madness:
As a constant reader of TheOneRing.net, I was thrilled to see they had written a book. This incredibly detailed volume caters to the ultimate nerds among the so-called “Ringers.”
After some history on the background and difficulties leading up to Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, the book delves right into scene-by-scene analyses of the first two Hobbit films. The analyses include witty summaries, “geeky observations,” and also revelations of the films’ rare mistakes.
I thoroughly enjoyed all the tidbits and thoughts expressed in Middle-Earth Madness. As someone who went from knowing very little about hobbits in 2012 to a full-blown Tolkien geek at the DOS midnight premiere, I appreciate the opinions and observations from all these fellow fans of J.R.R. Tolkien—an incredible man who used his God-given gifts to challenge and inspire the world.
