I would recommend this book for any Tolkien fan. It's a great read. The story was very tragic, no happy ending to this one. If you are looking for lighter read I would read the hobbit instead, this story is great but sad.....
Absolutely loved this story and the narration by the late Christopher Lee is amazing!! Sound quality is excellent, he does different voices for different characters and it's great. His narration allows the listener to easily immerse in the story and visualize the story in ones mind.
Lee makes Tolkien come alive in a masterful performance. His voice and dramatic delivery paints a tragic tapestry of the Epic of Turin Turambar, the Mormegil, and Nianor in the most vivid of colors. Mr. Lee will be sorely missed; although in the greatest classical sense his work and, therefore, his fame will ever endure.
I recommend this book to everyone. Christopher Lee did a fantastic job narrating it. He is an avid Tolkien fan and provided such a masterful rendition of this as only he could do!
great performance by Christopher Lee. he rather dark story but in keeping with the legends
