      ...If you want a book about Tolkien that's well-written, entertaining, fully
      engages with its subject, and makes points of high brilliance and dead-on
      accuracy, I recommend Tom Shippey's forthcoming _J.R.R. Tolkien: Author
      of the Century_ (Houghton Mifflin, April; already available from
      HarperCollins in the UK).

      so I was hoping that before I plunk down the cash (or pull out my credit
      card) someone(s) can tell me if they've read it and consider it
      worthwhile.
