A review by nonabgo
The War of the Jewels by J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien


I found this book the hardest to read from the entire series. Most of it is just a list of changes to previous texts, so if you want to be really thorough you need to keep Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales open at the same time, otherwise you won't understand a thing. I ended up skipping most of that and focusing on content that hasn't been published before in any of the previous 10 books of the series.

The Grey Annals was a fun read, although having to always go to the notes/commentary section can be annoying. Hurin's story was great though and just for that I think this book is worth a read.
