About the Author

J.R.R.Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 60 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

Reviews

`Never did [Tolkien] write a more sustained account of battle. With dragons and fiery balrogs galore, the attack on Gondolin makes Peter Jackson's souped-up cinema battles look like tabletop games.'
The Times

`The text is rife with references to characters and creatures that come to play a role in The Lord of the Rings... one passage in particular seems to set up one of the most famous scenes from the LOTR trilogy.'
Time

`It's a load-bearing pillar in the grander narrative that eventually came to encompass better-known works. Tolkien explicitly expressed his wish later in life that the three Great Tales of Middle-earth's early days - The Children of Hurin, Beren and Luthien, and The Fall of Gondolin - along with The Lord of the Rings and other writings, should be considered as "one long Saga of the Jewels and the Rings".'
