Here are the top 3 reviews and comments that readers love about this fascinating book.
Review 1: Beren and Lúthien audiobook by Ms. Rhiannon
Snippets of JRR’s storytelling interrupted by Christopher’s long winded descriptions of what his father was thinking, and what was happening with the family and what color hat he was wearing when he wrote each passage (okay, that last part was exaggeration but not by much). This is not a book for anyone interested in the story, since the constant commentary made it impossible to follow the flow of JRR’s brilliance.
Review 2: Beren and Lúthien audiobook by Megan
Not a story, but a study of the evolution of one.
This book alternates between notes by Christopher Tolkien & the various manuscripts his father wrote about the title characters. I loved it, but it is a strange experience to listen to it.
Review 3: Beren and Lúthien audiobook by papa k
Beautifully written with Academic Narrative
I was hoping for a synthesis, a beautifully integrated story of these two characters. We get the academic considerations of Tolkien’s variations. While I appreciate the scholarship, my heart just wants a good tale told straight through. Both narrators make it work.
