Festival in a Shire far far away digital magazine

Subject: Festival in a Shire far far away digital magazine
by Trotter on 2012/10/29 12:16:09

Jason Fisher has posted a blog entry on the latest copy of the digital magazine (Festival somewhere remotely located to the Shire, Holland this time) including an interview with Tolkien's first and not very accurate English biographer Daniel Grotta, quote on Tolkien below

"I see Tolkien more as a storyteller and mythmaker than an author, because if truth be told, he wasn’t really a very good writer. Stylistically, The Lord of the Rings suffers from inconsistencies, digressions, plus unresolved story, plot and character lines. It desperately needed a good edit to clean up the language."

Has he even read any of Tolkien's books?
