USA Today's Book Buzz section had a great article today about the new Tolkien novel. Started in 1918 by J.R.R. Tolkien and abandoned before completion, The Children of Hurin was finished by his son Christopher and now boasts a staggering 900,000 copies in print world-wide! This prequel to the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy may also be optioned for film in the future if the reading audience is receptive to the novel.
