Tolkien's world of hobbits and fantasy won't suit everyone. Tolkien isn't necessarily the best, but his depictions, imagery and lore are certainly one of the most broad and consistent. The Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings are great, but now outdated concept. His books drag hopelessly, requiring patience. A classic, but not a book that will grab the evolved imagination of today's youths. Grammatically, Tolkien is fine, with structured and flawless sentencing, expression and paragraphing. I recommend a look if detached fantasy enthralls.
