The story line from beginning to end was very interesting and kept my attention all along.
The stories here are much more poethic than in finnnished work, full of descriptive detail and wonderful imagery.
They reveal some very interesting early ideas which Tolkien did not include in "The Silmarillion".
covers basic beginning not really necessary for any other understanding of the stories except the trees and the lesser godsPublished 1 day ago by midas

Be forewarned that this is basically a pricey, glossy-bound paperback version of the book, not very well printed. My own fault for not checking the dimensions before ordering.Published 3 months ago by M. Richardson
