Thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

Will do! With my job, it should take me quite a while to get through it, seeing as I get about 30 minutes of pleasure reading per day (which stinks). Too bad I won't be able to take part in the discussion. I always seem to be late. I guess that means I arrive precisely when I mean to.

Thanks for the advice everyone. Enjoy your week!

To those who have read it: is it similar to the Silmarillion, or does it read more like a narrative?


Yes. It is similar to The Silmarillion, except that long parts of it read more like a narrative, by which I assume you mean a novel, rather than a history. It is also different from The Silmarillion, obviously, because it focuses on Turin. Even the tale of Hurin is incomplete; except for a brief epilogue, the story ends with Turin's death.

Please let us know what you think. Many of us had already read the version of the tale found in Unfinished Tales, and it sounds like you have not. I would love to know your impressions.
