Painstakingly restored from Tolkien's manuscripts, this is the first complete, standalone Middle-earth book by J.R.R.

Against them Morgoth sends his most formidable servant, Glaurung, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire, in an attempt to fulfil the curse of Morgoth, and destroy the children of Hurin.Begun by J.R.R.

Tolkien at the end of the First World War, The Children of Hurin became the dominant story in his later work on Middle-earth. But he could not bring it to a final and finished form. In this book Christopher Tolkien has constructed, after long study of the manuscripts, a coherent narrative without any editorial invention.

Medlemsvurdering:
Taking place in the distant past of the Middle Earth most people know from the "Lord of the Rings," the "Children of Hurin" is a poignantly beautiful gem from JRR Tolkien's literary world. "The Children of Hurin" begins with the most disastrous defeat of Elves and Men in that war, and how Turin, son of the greatest warrior in the history of Men, tries to take up his father's responsibility and reverse the damage. "The Children of Hurin" is great all by itself, but will do a lot to help you understand the world of LOTR in general. Its not the same style as "The Hobbit" or the "LOTR" books, but it sure is just as good. And if youre a fan of Middle Earth then this is a must read!

Painstakingly restored from Tolkien's manuscripts, this is the first complete, standalone Middle-earth book by J.R.R. Tolkien since The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.


It is a legendary time long before The Lord of the Rings, and Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwells in the vast fortress of Angband in the North; and within the shadow of the fear of Angband, and the war waged by Morgoth against the Elves, the fates of Turin and his sister Nienor will be tragically entwined.


Their brief and passionate lives are dominated by the elemental hatred that Morgoth bears them as the children of Hurin, the man who dared to defy him to his face. Against them Morgoth sends his most formidable servant, Glaurung, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire, in an attempt to fulfil the curse of Morgoth, and destroy the children of Hurin.


Begun by J.R.R. Tolkien at the end of the First World War, The Children of Hurin became the dominant story in his later work on Middle-earth. But he could not bring it to a final and finished form.

– En perle. Samlingen til en Tolkien-fanatiker som meg MÅTTE bare inneholde denne boken. Children of Hurin tar deg tilbake til tiden før bøkene om Lord of the Rings. Vi får innblikk i Morgoth sitt herredømme. Han er den første Dark Lord, som kriger mot alvene og deres hemmelig byer. Vi blir også kjent med Turin og hans søster som vil bekjempe ondskapen som Morgoth øser utover verden. Morgoth har en skapning som kalles Glaurung, som hjelper sin herre i kampen for å gjøre verden mest mulig ond. Boken inneholder flotte beskrivelser av beste Tolkien stil, og boken holder deg fanget til du er ferdig. Anbefales!
