's review

really liked it

I always love reading me some First Age Tolkien writing, but it always leaves me a little sad, as he was never able to finish this work off to his satisfaction during his lifetime. These older versions, and half completed versions give a window into his creative world, but I always want more...

But, perhaps that's the appeal of this, we can mold our own versions based on what is out there in the HOMA books, along with these shorter, more condensed works.

Read this, if for nothing else than for the description of the Fall of Gondolin in the oldest complete version of the tale. It's an amazing piece of writing, truly compelling.
