Best J.R.R. Tolkien book ever written, 3 Sept. 2010
Best J.R.R. Tolkien book ever written
Why didnt it get released when J.R.R. Tolkien was alive. If you dont like the Silmarillion and want another
Middle Earth book before the time of the hobbit or Lord of the Rings i reccomend this with 5 stars.
The Children of Húrin is set in the days of the Morgoth, the
first Dark Lord and will reunite fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with
Elves, dragons, Dwarves and Orcs, and the rich landscape and characters unique to Tolkien.
Please be aware the The Children of Húrin is not a story about Hobbits and their adventures.
Gandalf is not even mentioned in The Children of Húrin.
