Poveşti neterminate este o culegere de naraţiuni care se întind în timp de la zilele de odinioară ale Pământului de Mijloc până la sfârşitul Războiului Inelului şi cuprind istorii despre Gandalf şi întâlnirea gnomilor cu hobbiţii în fundătura, despre Ulmo, Domnul Mării şi apariţia sa în faţa lui Tuor, despre lungile evuri ale Numenorului înaintea scufundării în mare şi tot ce se ştie despre cei cinci vrăjitori. Volumul a fost editat de Christopher Tolkien, care a adăugat note şi comentarii ce plasează fiecare poveste în contextul operei tatălui său.

the first half i did not care for at all, but the rest was quite informative. ( )

Read it without really understanding how these individual tales really fit into the larger corpus. Now that I have read and re-read Tolkien's works, I appreciate these deeper tales that flesh out these mythological characters. I especially now like the back stories of the Third Age; in my earlier years, I wanted Lord of the Rings to remain LOTR with its lovely words and actions and no interference" from earlier notes.

I remember the first time I read it, on Christmas morning, hearing my inner voice speaking in the words of this book. Very powerful hold, it was.

I'm so very, very glad it was published, and I appreciate the work that Christopher Tolkien has given his life and privacy to ensure happens." ( )

enjoyable, in the way of Tolkien's works. the downfall to Unfinished Tales is that the stories are, well.... unfinished. :) ( )
