The Children of Hurin is a tragic tale of love and loss, of remorseful earth-shattering revelations; consequently, it is also one of the most moving stories Tolkien ever devised. The execution never fully delivered it though, only because Tolkien never finished editing it.

It just needs a little bit of polishing to remove a couple of tarnishes, and then it would be perfection.4/5. Mar 16,  · Children of Hurin definitely is a must read for JRR T fans and anyone who likes Lord of the Rings.

Although the story itself is rather dark, the tale involves dragons, dwarves, elves, kings, and a group of misfits lead by the lead character. The book is probably suited for an older audience/5(6).
