Unfinished Tales  Dec 27, 2007
Arrived quickly. Was rated too high for the condition of the book. Good price.
fast shipping, but damaged goods  Dec 19, 2007
i was very happy with the turnaround on shipping, considering i elected to have the book shipped with this site's free supersaver option. unfortunately, the (hardcover) book arrived with the upper right corners of both the front and back covers smooshed, as if someone dropped it from a considerable height. it is not bad enough to warrant all the hassle of trying to obtain a replacement, yet it is disappointing nonetheless.

therefore, the three start rating is for the condition in which the book arrived. as for the content--well, it's tolkien. and as much as I loved The Silmarillion (I daresay it is my favorite book of all time), I can't imagine that i will not thoroughly enjoy it as well.
Not Free SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
Unfinished tales is a hodge-podge of stuff. There are bits and pieces
of lots of things, and it is not all fiction. You get notes, backstory,
comments, the odd essay type piece of writing, and other stuff. You
really want to be a pretty hardcore Tolkien type to want to buy this,
rather than borrow to flip through. A lot of people will find it very

Simply breathtaking  Aug 14, 2007
...because breathtaking is the one word I would use to describe this work. People who have already read the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and most especially the Silmarillion will have great appreciation for the further insight and mythology offered in the Unfinished Tales.

My favourite part has to be the story of Numenor; this is also the only collection of stories that contains a map of Numenor. It's my favourite because it ties in very nicely with the ending of the main section in the Silmarillion. I get the impression that Tolkien was figuratively "singing" of this fabulous and blessed kingdom of men which is referenced very often in the Lord of the Rings. So from the backward-looking perspective, it is very interesting as it gives the reader a much deeper, complex understanding of Aragorn, Elrond and the kindgom of Gondor in the Lord of the Rings. From the forward-looking perspective, however, it tells the story of a middle earth that has only just recovered from the ravages of the first age and the great wars therein.

Like other reviewers have mentioned, the other stories also serve to augment a Tolkien reader's existing knowledge of middle earth and the forces which have played a part in its history. While a very good (albeit complex) book on its own, it transforms into a consummate masterpiece when read with Tolkien's other stories.
Best For Those Who Treasure the Silmarillion  Jun 24, 2007
If The Silmarillion bored you, you won't like Unfinished Tales. For those who are fascinated by the lore of Middle Earth, Unfinished Tales adds breadth and depth to one's understanding of both elves and men. Tolkien's brilliance shines like a silmaril in these tales, some of which could stand as individual works. Thanks to Christopher Tolkien for gathering these tales and making them available to the legions of his father's fans.
