Reviews of books traditionally from the Fantasy genre, not Romance, and some science fiction.

Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Children of Húrin - J.R.R. Tolkien, Alan Lee, J.R.R. Tolkien

This one is a little hard going. If you've read The Silmarillion, it is similar in tone and expands on Tolkien's mythology.

 

Personally I like this sort of thing, but it can be a little dry for some people. It's not what you would call fast action and Tolkien does have a way of dragging things out.

 

Still, if you're a real Fantasy freak, anything by Tolkien has to be read sooner or later.
