A "great" review is one with the name of the cigar before the review text
in the body of the post. :)


B-Day:

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892): Author and English scholar whose unparalleled
love of linguistics resulted in "his unique insight at once into the
language of poetry and the poetry of language." After completing his studies
at Oxford University, Tolkien served as Professor of Anglo-Saxon (Old
English) at his alma mater. When he was not in the classroom, Tolkien was
bringing the fantastical world of Middle-earth to life on the written page.
Middle-earth, which he gave an Old English name, was inhabited with
creatures like Elves, Dwarves, Trolls and Hobbits. The most famous of
Tolkien's tales include The Hobbit (1937) and The Lord of the Rings (1955).
The popularity of Tolkien's works have not waned with age as evidenced by
the overwhelming success of the screen adaptation of The Lord of the Rings.
