Copied from "People of Middle Earth": Honestly, I learned so much about writing and understanding the world around me by reading these books from Tolkien. Getting this break down of how the world of Middle Earth ran made things so interesting. As I started to get more and more into history, so much of his world building, and the wars going on between Sauron and the free people of Middle Earth, or the wars between the Elves and Morgoth, or (I could continue) were such clear parallels to what was happening in Tolkien's world.... and they are still such clear parallels to what is happening in today's world. We always talk about how Dystopian novels are a way of warning us about the path we're following, and how our future might turn out, but we forget that a lot of Fantasy novels are also reflections of people today, and how we need to get our acts together. **Side thought with this book** Honestly, after reading this, I think it spurred my need to get into genealogy....

Terrible and confusing and boring. My brother loves and has read all the LOR and related books like the Hobbit, etc. He said it wasn't good.

This is a tragic story about the fate of the Children of Hurin. It was not my favorite of Tolkien's works (the Hobbit holds that distinction) but it is an interesting story about the earlier days of Middle Earth.

The story is kind of disjointed and a little creepy in spots, but having Christopher Lee read it makes it quite good.

Need to be a fan of middle earth (I think) to enjoy this.
