J.R.R. Tolkien's writings on the Second Age of Middle-earth, collected for the first time in one volume complete with new illustrations in watercolor and pencil by renowned artist Alan Lee.

J.R.R. Tolkien famously described the Second Age of Middle-earth as a "dark age, and not very much of its history is (or need be) told." And for many years readers would need to be content with the tantalizing glimpses of it found within the pages of The Lord of the Rings and its appendices, including the forging of the Rings of Power, the building of the Barad-dûr and the rise of Sauron.

It was not until Christopher Tolkien published The Silmarillion after his father's death that a fuller story could be told. Although much of the book's content concerned the First Age of Middle-earth, there were at its close two key works that revealed the tumultuous events concerning the rise and fall of the island of Númenor. Raised out of the Great Sea and gifted to the Men of Middle-earth as a reward for aiding the angelic Valar and the Elves in the defeat and capture of the Dark Lord Morgoth, the kingdom became a seat of influence and wealth; but as the Númenóreans' power increased, the seed of their downfall would inevitably be sown, culminating in the Last Alliance of Elves and Men.

Even greater insight into the Second Age would be revealed in subsequent publications, first in Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth, then expanded upon in Christopher Tolkien's magisterial twelve-volume The History of Middle-earth, in which he presented and discussed a wealth of further tales written by his father, many in draft form.

Now, adhering to the timeline of "The Tale of Years" in the appendices to The Lord of the Rings, editor Brian Sibley has assembled into one comprehensive volume a new chronicle of the Second Age of Middle-earth, told substantially in the words of Tolkien from the various published texts, with new illustrations in watercolor and pencil by the doyen of Tolkien art, Al… (lisätietoja)

I read this book because I watched the Amazon Prime series "Rings of Power" and I wanted to know the "real" story behind the series. There is a lot to unpack here. Everything ever written by Tolkein about Numenor and its history is told here in sequential order.

Some of the passages were extremely beautifully written. I was especially moved by the scene were Tar-Miriel faces the waves as the island of Numenor is reclaimed by the sea. However, some of the passages can become a little boring.

Still, this was a lot easier to read than the "Lord of the Rings" series. And, the book is very beautifully illustrated. ( )

Come si sapeva, non contiene materiale nuovo: stratti dal Signore degli Anelli, dal Silmarillion, dai Raccconti Incompiuti, dalla Storia della Terra di Mezzo e dalla Nature of Middle-earth.

Ma per raggiungere le 250 pagine c'è dentro grossomodo tutta la storia di Aldarion e Earendis (dai Racconti Incompiuti), una parte del "riassunto" della Terza Era presente nel Silmarillion e i due capitoli su Numenor da "La strada smarrita"/"The Lost Road"

Di positivo ci sono le immagini di Lee e il fatto di avere tutto il materiale sulla Seconda Era raggruppato in maniera ordinata in un solo volume ( )

The Fall of Numenor includes many writings by J.R.R. Tolkien, regarding the rise and fall of Numenor without adding suppositions or theories and lists them in chronological order. These writings have come from a variety of sources and are cataloged in a way that reads like an historical text. Dates are included making a timeline of Middle-earth history based on Numenor's many rulers. The book ends where The Lord of the Rings begins. The read is enjoyable, but requires thought and contemplation as connections between events are revealed.

The book itself is of high quality with heavy duty paper used to create pages and an attached red ribbon as a bookmark. Print is in black and blue with black speech in red. Also the end papers feature a map of Middle-earth and a dramatic picture showing the fall of Numenor. In addition, several beautiful, full-color bookplates of Alan Lee's work are included throughout the book to supplement the text. Overall, The Fall of Numenor is an entertaining work chronicling an important event in the history of Middle-earth. ( )
