Children of Hurin

The Children of Húrin The Children of Húrin by J.R.R. Tolkien
My review
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It took a little while for me to get into this book, but once I got started, it moved along fairly quickly. I found it interesting the story elements that I recognized in this book. There’s a little bit of Oedipus, and some Romeo and Juliet, along with the usual Tolkien Middle-Earth stuff like Elves and dragons and good and evil. I still don’t think it is quite on par with his other work, but if you are a fan, it is a must read.
Next up is I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, “now a major motion picture starring Will Smith!” But we all know I don’t get to see movies very often, so I’ll just read the book.
