The Children of Hurin by J. R. R. Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien
The Children of Hurin

Nino, April 21, 2007

As far as capturing the voice of his father goes, Christopher Tolkien has done an excellent job of this in The Children of Hurin. The book reads like any classic Tolkien novel down to the way the characters talk to one another and the detailed descriptions of lore and history of Middle-earth. It should be noted to those who liked the lighter-hearted ending of the Lord of the Rings - no such ending occurs here. This a tragic tale from start to finish that makes for a solid read and will have you flipping pages in a non-stop reading marathon.
