Stunning 40th anniversary collector's edition of this collection of tales which takes readers further into stories told in The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, featuring 18 full-colour paintings, housed in a matching illustrated slipcase with two removable full-colour posters unique to this edition.



Unfinished Tales is a collection of narratives ranging in time from the Elder Days of Middle-earth to the end of the War of the Ring, and provides those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with a whole collection of background and new stories.


The book concentrates on the realm of Middle-earth and comprises such elements as The Quest of Erebor, Gandalf's lively account of how it was that he came to send the Dwarves to the celebrated party at Bag-End; the emergence of the sea-god Ulmo before the eyes of Tuor on the coast of Beleriand; and an exact description of the military organization of the Riders of Rohan.


Unfinished Tales also contains the only story about the long ages of Numenor before its downfall, and all that is known about such matters as the Five Wizards, the Palantiri and the legend of Amroth. The tales were edited by Christopher Tolkien, who provides a short commentary on each story, helping the reader to fill in the gaps and put each story into the context of the rest of his father's writings.


In celebration of its 40th anniversary, this new edition features 18 stunning paintings from critically acclaimed Tolkien artists, Alan Lee, John Howe & Ted Nasmith, which reveal the three Ages of Middle-earth like never before. This special collector's edition is printed on superior quality paper, features a unique special binding and ribbon marker and is housed in a custom-made, fully illustrated slipcase.

Kunders vurdering

T
Tarjei – 10.08.2005

– Dette er boken for den som enda ikke har fått nok etter 'Hobbiten', 'Ringenes Herre' og 'Silmarillion'. 'Unfished Tales' kan svare på en del spørsmål man har fått gjennom de tre foregående bøkene, men også denne etterlater seg en del spørsmål. Boken er delt opp på en god og ryddig måte; en del for hvert tideverv, samt en del om ting som er uavhengig av tideverv. Boken skildrer fortellingene om Turin og Tuor mye mer detaljert enn 'Silmarillion', så de som interesserer seg for dem vil finne noe bra allerede det første kapittelet. Videre handler den blant annet om forholdet mellom Rohan og Gondor, jakten på Ringen og Trollmennene. Hvert kapittel er kommentert grundig av Tolkiens sønn, Christopher, og det er med på å klarne opp i en del spørsmål og misforståelser. Så hvis du har lyst på enda mer er 'Unfinished Tales' et meget klokt valg. Ikke la deg skremme av at det er på engelsk, den er best på originalspråket.
