Dominic Brabo5 Stars Out Of 5June 8, 2010Dominic BraboThe Children of Hurin is an engaging tale of Turin, son of Hurin, in his battle against the first Dark Lord, Morgoth. Turin's sister comes into play towards the end of the book. The only thing that I did not like (which is well overridden by the things that I do like), was that it is really a tragedy, Good wins agains the Orcs and the Dragon in the end, but Turin seems to always make the wrong choice, which causes troubles for his friends. Overall, this is a great book. There is a shorter version in one of the two Book of Lost Tales, but it is nice to have all the details.
Scott5 Stars Out Of 5July 4, 2008ScottThis is a great book. Though I've read the story in several forms (The Silmarilion, The Book of Lost Tales) this full version brings it to life. The tragic story of Turin unfolds in a real, dramatic, magical way. A must read for Tolkien fans.
