The Complete Guide to Middle-Earth cover The Complete Guide to Middle Earth by Robert Foster

Published by Ballantine Books

Reviewed by Leigh Kimmel

In the stories of Middle Earth, J.R.R. Tolkien created a complex and self-consistant world. With its fascinating layers of history, it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of all the details, especially across the different books.

This book is designed to help with that very problem. Arranged like an encyclopedia, it has entries on every person, place and thing in the Middle Earth books -- The Hobbit, the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. That makes it quick and easy to look up any topic related to Tolkien's grand epic.
