Product Description

Painstakingly piecing together his father's numerous drafts, Christopher reconstructed this marvelous new addition to Tolkien's imaginary world. At a time when the mighty Sauron was a lieutenant to the evil Morgoth, only H<\#250>rin was brave enough to defy the Lord of Shadows. But his audacity came with a cost---and his children paid the price. 320 pages, softcover from Houghton Mifflin.

Publisher's Description

The Children of Húrin is the first complete book by J.R.R.Tolkien since the 1977 publication of The Silmarillion. Six thousand years before the One Ring is destroyed, Middle-earth lies under the shadow of the Dark Lord Morgoth. The greatest warriors among elves and men have perished, and all is in darkness and despair. But a deadly new leader rises, Túrin, son of Húrin, and with his grim band of outlaws begins to turn the tide in the war for Middle-earth -- awaiting the day he confronts his destiny and the deadly curse laid upon him.

The paperback edition of The Children of Húrin includes eight color paintings by Alan Lee and a black-and-white map.

    The 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.

    This review was written for The Children of Hurin, Hardcover.
    This 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.
