Reviewed in Australia on 1 January 2019
This collection of stories covers the mythos and history of Middle-Earth. The central theme of the book is the fall of Elvin kind. Full of loss, revenge, betrayal, grief and a constant strain of heroism. Not as easy to read as the main sequence novels but worth the read for those of us who want to know the history and backstory. JRRT spent over 50 years developing and refining events of his made up world and characters including languages, family trees and historical events. I salute Christopher for picking up his father's work and completing it. Truly an amazing feat of creativity.
