    Reason everyone should read this: it includes two versions of an unpublished Epilogue to LOTR that Tolkien wrote but was tragically talked out of including in the published book. It features Sam recounting things to his adorable Hobbit children, and answers lots of questions, and somehow makes the ending WAY LESS BITTERSWEET. <3 Seriously, just read this epilogue thing, even if you don't read the rest of this History of Middle-earth book.

    I really loved this book. It retold the ending of the Lord of the Rings series as well as added some bonus epilogues not in the original story. Once again Christopher Tolkien did a wonderful job of explaining how his father J.R.R. Tolkien came up with the story in the notes following each chapter.

    Petit livre pas désagréable à lire pour les fans inconditionnels de Seigneur des Anneaux. au cas où les trois pavés de 600 pages chacun ne seraient pas assez. On y apprends pléthores anecdotes non inclues dans les romans finaux.Cependant je me suis toujours posés certaines questions sur la santé mentale de Tolkien en parcourant ce livre. en effet beaucoup de passages sont présentés comme faisant partie de le chronique royale de telle dynastie du Gondor où de telles annales historiques [...]

    About a third or a fourth in size of the other three volumes in the History of the Lord of the Rings (probably due to the fact that the material of this book was originally the first third of Sauron Defeated, volume nine in the History of Middle-earth series), this book covers the story between Sam's rescue of Frodo at the tower of Cirith Ungol (originally Kirith Ungol) on the borders of Mordor, and takes the story through to its end, and beyond. Its most interesting chapter covers the writing o [...]

    très intéressant à lire en complément du Seigneur des anneaux et surtout du Silmarillon, à lire si on est fan de l'univers de tolkien et qu'on aime en savoir plus sur certaines choses et certaines personnes;

    Satisfying conclusion to my epic nerdy journey through the writing of the Lord of the Rings. Looking at the never-published epilogue was especially interesting. I love Tolkien!!

    Le fait que ce soit inachevée, ben ça gâche un peu le plaisir Pas le meilleur Tolkien que j' ai lu C'est vraiment parce que je suis fan

    Publicación de material no terminado y que se descartó en la composición de El Silmarillión y El señor de los Anillos. De interés para fanáticos de Tolkien (como yo).

    Recuerdo sobre todo lo sorprendente que fué leer sobre los istari y las palantiri
