Tolkien works his magic and takes you to the ancient times of his marvelous world and lets you witness this heart aching and beautiful legend
Does not matter if you have read The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings..this is a different style though equally entertaining, if not more so.
If you like this, you have to read The Silmarillion, and vice versa.

Strictly for the Tolkien fan this version of the story, written after The Lord of the Rings. It has appeared earlier in other versions. As usual good and informative comments by Christopher Tolkien.
A cruel and sad story which obviously fascinated Tolkien. Completely lacking in the humour which makes Lord of the Rings so enjoyable

This only gets a four as it is a rather dark tale for my taste. Though I admit the book is as well written as everything written by the genius that was J.R.R. Tolkien.

If you loved The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit but you're left wondering about the elder days and how it all came to be, The children of Hurin is one of the books you need to add to your future need to read books alongside The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.

The book came almost brand new. Very happy with it. As for the book I think it's my favourite Tolkien book outside The Lord of the Rings. The story is much easier to read than The Simarillion, but it still goes into a lot of detail. It has a helpful character sheet after the appendix, that tells you who they are and what they are, for exa,ple Thingol would be the ruler of Dor-Lómin. Overall a fantastic book. Would recommend to any Tolkien fan, especially if they couldn't get into The Simarillion.

This dark tale is one of my favourite Tolkien stories. Brilliant. Tolkien doesn't seem to write fantasy but a sort of secret history!

If you enjoyed The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings you should give this a go but be advised it is heavier going. If you are an ardent Tolkein fan then this is a must. This book shows that there is a lot more history to Middle Earth than we know in Tolkeins better known works, and this book only scratches the surface. I would highly recommend this book as long as you know what you are getting.

This book is outstanding . I do not recommend newcomers to the fantastic world of J.R.R TOLKIEN'S MIDDLE EARTH to read it untill you read the hobbit and the mighty LORD OF THE RINGS. on a whole the book is outstand as all of his book and is a must read.

Brilliant book. Still reading through this and am enjoying every minute of it. What makes it even better is I'm listening to the audible version while reading along with it and the narrator is Christopher Lee himself. As for delivery and all other things 5/5
