Author Research - J.R.R Tolkien
Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892 in South Africa. Four years later, in 1896, his father died and his family moved back to England. In 1904, his mother died because of diabetes. A priest took care of him and his brother. By that time, He had mastered Latin and greek and was already competent in other languages like Gothic and Finnish. Later, in 1916, he was enlisted to fight in the Western front. After the war ended, he went back to England and began writing stories and books.
I think he appeals to readers because he writes the usual adventure novel, but it is very unique and different from others.
In conclusion, he is a great author.
