This is my second read of this. I enjoy it more this time around. I tabbed so many spots. Reading this made me excited to read ‘Children of Hurin’ and ‘Lays of Beleraind.’ It also has me super excited for the story of Beren and Luthien that is coming out this month. It written in a way that takes a while to read. This read took 2 months, especially since it wasn’t the only thing I was reading.
This is not a casual book to pick up. It is a book for more dedicated fans of Middle-Earth and Tolkien. There is a lot of history in there and its written in a slow going way.
