Following Gandalf

Author: Matthew Dickerson

Genre: It’s a companion for Lord of the Rings and Hobbit. 

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9

Type: Non-fiction about a fiction book (?)

Number of pages: 234

My overall opinion: Overall, I really enjoyed it! Dickerson did a good job of not reading into the book too much – pet peeve of mine. :P This book included a lot of quotes from Lord of the Rings and Hobbit, which I enjoyed. One or two chapters got a little too theological about things, IMHO, but that was only a bit. For the most part, this book is great and will answer some of your questions about Gandalf, Ilúvatar, Aragorn, and others. Very good overall, and I recommend it for any Tolkien fan!
