Book Review: The Return of the King by JRR Tolkien

Just as every great story has a beginning, every great story also has a great ending. The difficulty with the last book in a series or in the season finale of a television show is that you don’t want the story to end just yet; and you hope beyond hope that the writers will be able to wrap everything up and give you a satisfying … Continue reading Book Review: The Return of the King by JRR Tolkien

Book Review: The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien

Just like with films, creating and reading the second book in a series can be a little bit difficult.

Audio Drama: Big Finish’s Jago & Litefoot Series 5 (Spoilers!)

Big Finish really did good when they allowed Spotify to have some of their audio dramas for Whovians to enjoy, as it does allow Whovians who want more “Doctor Who” to whet their appetites with what they have to offer so that they can go and purchase the rest of a particular range or series from Big Finish themselves. As for me, it’s definitely working, … Continue reading Audio Drama: Big Finish’s Jago & Litefoot Series 5 (Spoilers!)
