The Children of Hurin

Mr. Lee has just finished his work on 'The Children of Hurin'. The book was started by JJR Tolkien in the 1920's and completed recently by hs granson Christopher Tolkien.  Mr. Lee spent 5 days narrating this audio book for Harper Collins.

The earliest versions of this story by J.R.R. Tolkien go back to the end of the First World War and the years that followed; but long afterwards, when The Lord of the Rings was finished, he wrote a new and greatly enlarged it in complexities of motive and character: it became the dominant story in his later work on Middle-earth. But he could not bring it to a final and finished form. In this book Christopher Tolkien has constructed, after long study of the manuscripts, a coherent narrative without any editorial invention.

The CD audio book is available for pre-order through Amazon (UK)
