It is always worthwhile to compare ideas and perspectives with others about things that matter to us. This is the essential logic behind a book review. And all who visit this blog know of our fellow traveler, Ilverai, and have noted his contributions to our explorations of the Tolkien legendarium. But not everyone may be aware of his own interesting blog, Wandering Paths. Those Middle-earth wanderers who appreciate the insights of Owen Barfield and Verlyn Flieger will surely want to spend time reviewing Ilverai’s review of Splintered Light.
