My Review

The Fall of Gondolin Audiobook, narrated by Timothy West and Samuel West, is a captivating listen for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth lore. Although the novel may read more like a synopsis than a fully developed story, the majestic narrative and beautiful prose make it worth the listen.

One of the highlights of The Fall of Gondolin is seeing Tolkien’s progression as a storyteller. The epic tale of Gondolin is crafted with careful detail and showcases the depth of Tolkien’s imagination. However, it is important to note that this audiobook is not a continuous novel, but rather a collection of shorter and longer fragments woven together by Christopher Tolkien.

Christopher Tolkien retells the tale of Tuor, the protagonist, multiple times throughout the book. While some may find this repetition redundant, it offers different perspectives and sheds further light on the Elder Days and the End of Days. For fans of the Silmarillion, these nuggets of information are well worth the listen.

The narrators, Timothy West and Samuel West, do an excellent job of bringing the text to life. Their engaging performances make it easy to connect with the story and immerse oneself in the world of Middle Earth. Their alternating roles as narrator and editor’s voice add depth and richness to the audiobook.

One of the highlights of Christopher Tolkien’s editions is his ability to blend storytelling with editorial remarks. He seamlessly synthesizes difficult underlying materials and creates a coherent story with multiple strands. While this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it adds a unique touch to the audiobook.

It’s important to note that a significant portion of the audiobook is dedicated to the writing of the story, with previously unpublished versions, fragments, and explanations. Some listeners may find these extended sections detract from the overall enjoyment. However, the first chapter, which contains the Fall of Gondolin itself, is a beautiful and poignant tale that showcases Tolkien’s storytelling prowess.

Fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings will appreciate how these editions provide a complex backstory for the events and allusions in those beloved stories. Christopher Tolkien’s love for his father’s work is evident throughout, and the passion he poured into these editions is commendable.

Overall, The Fall of Gondolin Audiobook, narrated by Timothy West and Samuel West, offers a unique and engaging listening experience for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s mythology. While the book may have its shortcomings, the beauty of Tolkien’s words and the depth added to Middle Earth lore make it a worthwhile listen. So, dive into this majestic narrative and let yourself be transported to the enchanting world of Gondolin.
