About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

Children of Húrin

I was reading through the news the other day when I read an article saying that another Lord Of The Rings book will be published next month. How, I thought? J.R.R Tolkien has been dead for many years now, and I don't think anyone else could capture the target audience as he did. But it appears Tolkien was writing a book when he died 90 years ago. His son Christopher Tolkien Junior decided to finish the uncompleted book, and has taken almost 3 decades to complete it. Early reviews say it is "an epic story of adventure, tragedy, fellowship and heroism" which bodes well, and is set around the time period of the Hobbit.

It will be interesting to see if Christopher can capture the spirit of the earlier books: he has used his father's considerable notes to tell the story as it was meant to be told, and it is already being considered for movie treatment. How this will fit in is to be seen, with Peter Jackson not directing the Hobbit. I myself will probably be purchasing a copy, when it comes out on April 16th.
