Mythic lore and forgotten legends are unveiled in stories of the three ages of Middle-earth unearthed by Christopher Tolkien from his father's archives.

THE FIRST AGE
Young lord Turin fled from Morgoth's forces, wandering in disguise as an outlaw until he could avenge his people against the evil that had razed his home. But Turin lived under the curse of a hateful dragon - and the lord's secret identity hid more than he knew.

THE SECOND AGE
Prince Aldarion's heart belonged to Erendis, but his passion lay with the ocean, and the great ships that sailed beyond the sight of the land. But no man could serve two mistresses - and no mortal's love could withstand the lure of the sea.

THE THIRD AGE
The great warrior Isildur escaped with the One Ring, cut from the Dark Lord Sauron's hand, to hide it from Evil's grasp. But Isildur would learn the burden of a ringbearer - and of its temptation and despair.

This is the first work that showed us how Tolkien's obsessive perfectionism was a double-edged sword. On the one hand it gave us the wonderfully deep world and implied distances of [b:The Lord of the Rings|33|The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)|J.R.R.

4.0 Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-earth
I can only recommend this to rabid fans and completists. But I certainly enjoyed reading it again. There's lots of LotR background here, and fleshing out of certain stories (the death of Theodred for one, and the backstory of Galadriel & Celeborn). I liked how Christopher Tolkien presented numerous ...

2.5 A book for die hard Middle Earth fans
I have noticed that the further one drifts from an author's masterpiece the less impressive the writings become, and for Tolkien this is very evident. While I consider his masterpiece to be The Silmarilion (even though it was not actually completed by him) may others look to The Lord of the Rings. G...
