Witherington on The Children of Hurin

| | Comments (0)
Ben Witherington had a good review a while back of Tolkien's The Children of Hurin. For those who are completely out of the loop, this is an unfinished novel of J.R.R. Tolkien, parts of which appeared in The Silmarillion. Christopher Tolkien, who edited the last volume, turned what existed of the bulk of this novel into a real story. Apparently it's much easier to read than most of the posthumous publications of Tolkien that Christopher Tolkien has edited, but it's not all that much like the more widely-read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
