Perfect narration by Christopher Lee, and yet another wonderful work of writing, that can draw ones mind and soul back to the lands of middle earth, for still another adventure.
I had trouble following along at first, I couldn't remember names and people, but when it focused on the life of Turin, I was able to understand what was happening. like all of Tolkien's work, the verbiage is very difficult to understand. I definitely enjoyed this book.
Sir Christopher Lee performs masterfully in this audio rendition of the Children of Hurin. His performance was full of emotion and with the story itself, almost brought me to tears several times. I will always remember this book, so beautiful and sad.
This is a LONG story and unlikely to be of much interest to those info d of the larger and grander book in which these tales are told in less detail. But for the true Tolkien addict - enjoy!
it was really awesome and epic, and well read! beautiful! The pauses and dialogs spoken by Sir Christopher Lee brough the magic to the real world.
This is a pre-curser to the Hobbit and Lord of the rings. Nothing to do with either story but has some back history. Very different from the Lord of the rings. Very slow at the first couple of chapters. Then it starts to get interesting.
I cannot emphasize enough this is a must for Middle Earth fans. Sir Christopher Lee was a wonderful choice to narrate! His talent adds to this incredible story. You will not be disappointed. Tolkien's writing is flawless as is the story and narration!
