This is a fascinating review of Tolkien's background and gives great insight into his character. If you've ever read his writing and wondered what shaped his unique perspective, you'll find it here. I love Kate Reading and she's the perfect choice for this investigative-style performance. But be forewarned: her smooth, soothing tones can cause drowsiness. I don't recommend operating heavy machinery while listening. There's something very NPR-ish about the whole thing.
Loved everything about it. Found pdf of transcript off magazine's website! This was a grand slam: a great subject, writing, narrator, & Audible.com to bring them all home.
