The Wake takes place in and around 1066. The grammar can throw you off initially, but is still great, makes it better to hear Buckmaster of Holland. Simon Vance's work as narrator is what makes Buckmaster. Paul Kingsnorth work naturally comes to Simon Vance. If medieval history from a different perspective is what you're looking for, The Wake is amazing, if you'd like to hear it, this is the version to play.

Lee's voice is the voice of any Middle Earth work. He may not have wrote it, but Lee is the authoritative pronouncer. The story itself is a tragedy. It's less and less about Hurin and instead mostly follows Turin, his son. This is the way this story was to be enjoyed, the only other way would've been from Tolkien himself, or reading the book with Alan Lee's art.
