  8. I forgot one more thing. So much for reading directions. Good thing Ricky corrects my mistakes.

    Anyways, the last thing I know about J.R.R Tolkien is that he has great structure to his written works. He has a very mystical mind in which he creates beings,creatures and places in his stories. The chapters in his books are very a very strong part of the story for they don’t ever give away the happenings of the chapter.

  9. I know that this autor loves to write books, or he would not have written so many. Common sense also tells me that he loves fantasy, which is proven by the way his books are set up and what they are based on.

  10. I believe he really likes magic, and he likes long books, and that he’s kinda strange but in a good way.

    I know that he must have a BIG immagination, because he wrote the “Lord of the Rings”, didn’t he? And that he is very creative with his stories. And that he’s in love with fantasy books.

  12. 1.He is a male in the real world.
    2.He is a fantastic writer and is in my opinion a pretty kool guy.
    3.I believe he had lived into the 19th century.

    1. He is male.
    2. He writes fantasy stories; things that could never really happen.
    3. He is sadly, no longer living.

  14. 1. I know that he is the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series.
    2. He died at the age of 81.
    3. The Lord of the Rings series became very populary during the hippie era.
