Review by stnylan
A series of interconnected essays giving possible real-world scientific explanations for some of the phenomena in Middle Earth. Also an exploration of how the science of Tolkien's own time might have influenced the world he created. Not to be taken entirely seriously I think, but neither is it to be scoffed at. A good read, and certainly a different perspective to the great man's work.
