In the Tale of The Fall of Gondolin are two of the greatest powers in the world. There is Morgoth of the uttermost evil, unseen in this story but ruling over a vast military power from his fortress of Angband. Deeply opposed to Morgoth is Ulmo, second in might only to Manwë, chief of the Valar. Central to this enmity of the gods is the city of Gondolin, beautiful but undiscoverable. It was built and peopled by Noldorin Elves who, when they dwelt in Valinor, the land of the gods, rebelled against their rule and fled to Middle-earth. Turgon King of Gondolin is hated and feared above all his enemies by Morgoth, who seeks in vain to discover the marvellously hidden city, while the gods in Valinor in heated debate largely refuse to intervene in support of Ulmo's desires and designs. Into this world comes Tuor, cousin of Túrin, the instrument of Ulmo's designs. Guided unseen by him Tuor sets out from the land of his birth on the fearful journey to Gondolin, and in one of the most arresting moments in the history of Middle-earth the sea-god himself appears to him, rising out of the ocean in the midst of a storm. In Gondolin he becomes great; he is wedded to Idril, Turgon's daughter, and their son is Eärendel, whose birth and profound importance in days to come is foreseen by Ulmo. At last comes the terrible ending. Morgoth learns through an act of supreme treachery all that he needs to mount a devastating attack on the city, with Balrogs and dragons and numberless Orcs. After a minutely observed account of the fall of Gondolin, the tale ends with the escape of Tuor and Idril, with the child Eärendel, looking back from a cleft in the mountains as they flee southward, at the blazing wreckage of their city. They were journeying into a new story, the Tale of Eärendel, which Tolkien never wrote, but which is sketched out in this book from other sources. Following his presentation of Beren and Lúthien Christopher Tolkien has used the same 'history in sequence' mode in the writing of this edition of The Fall of Gondolin. In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, it was 'the first real story of this imaginary world' and, together with Beren and Lúthien and The Children of Húrin, he regarded it as one of the three 'Great Tales' of the Elder Days.… (més)

A lovely book. I enjoyed reading the fleshed out tale, even though it wasn't very long. I was a bit surprised that the book was as long as it is. Christopher has included the many versions of the tale and related tales that his father wrote as he formed the story of Middle Earth through the years. I believe it was helpful that I had just reread the Silmarillion before I began this. Some very helpful information at the end, including a map, genealogies, glossary of words which are of obscure meaning to some modern readers and definitions of place names. The illustrations, of course are lovely. All in all, I am very glad to have purchased this to sit beside my Lord of the Rings collection. ( )

Like with [b:Kullervo’nun Hikayesi|36480723|Kullervo’nun Hikayesi|J.R.R. Tolkien|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1509026553l/36480723._SY75_.jpg|43985572], I really just read the story part and skimmed the rest. While the prefaces and the explanations of all the different versions of the story were much more interesting that [i]Kullevro[/i], it wasn't really why I was reading the book. I love the stories, and I unfortunately found this one a bit dull. I think it's because I've already read variations of it in other works like [b:The Book of Lost Tales, Part Two|7346|The Book of Lost Tales, Part Two (The History of Middle-Earth, #2)|J.R.R. Tolkien|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1403191998l/7346._SY75_.jpg|6172120] and possibly [b:Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-Earth|7329|Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-Earth|J.R.R. Tolkien|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1165611104l/7329._SY75_.jpg|2961645]. It just wasn't as interesting the third time 'round. The art though was stellar, and part of why I love these and reminded me of [b:The Children of Húrin|597790|The Children of Húrin|J.R.R. Tolkien|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1390692771l/597790._SY75_.jpg|5725966], which I enjoyed very much. This just turned out to be a mediocre read in the end.

Love this stuff!!! really enjoyed the breakdown on the various versions of the story and how he shared it all in one place. Such an important part of the backdrop of Middle-Earth ( )

Classic J R R Tolkein. Although it was great to read all the versions that he wrote, I would have appreciated a more concise version. ( )

The story follows one of the Noldor, Tuor, who sets out to find Gondolin; during his journey, he experiences what the publisher described as "one of the most arresting moments in the history of Middle-earth": when Ulmo, the sea-god, rises out of the ocean during a storm.

When Tuor arrives in Gondolin, he becomes a great man and the father of Eärendel, an important character in Tolkien's The Silmarillion. But Morgoth attacks, with Balrogs, dragons and orcs, and as the city falls, Tuor, his wife Idril and the child Eärendel escape, "looking back from a cleft in the mountains as they flee southward, at the blazing wreckage of their city".

"They were journeying into a new story, the Tale of Eärendel, which Tolkien never wrote, but which is sketched out in this book from other sources," said HarperCollins.

[John] Garth said The Fall of Gondolin contains Tolkien's "biggest battle narrative outside of The Lord of the Rings", but he predicted the "capstone" of the book would be the "exquisite" piece of writing in which Tolkien attempted to tell the whole story again, in the novelistic style of The Lord of the Rings. "In the first (finished version) of the story, you feel like you’re reading The Iliad," he said. "This one (which is unfinished), is more naturalistic."

According to HarperCollins, Tolkien saw The Fall of Gondolin as one of his three "great tales" of the Elder Days, along with Beren and Lúthien and The Children of Húrin. The latter title was also a bestseller, after Christopher Tolkien completed the text left behind by his father and published it in 2007.

[Several below-the-line comments on the review point out that Tuor was not one of the Noldor, but a mortal man].

In my preface to Beren and Lúthien I remarked that 'in my ninety-third year this is (presumptively) the last book in the long series of editions of my father's writings'. [preface]

I will begin this book by returning to the quotation that I used to open Beren and Lúthien: a letter written by my father in 1964, in which he said that 'out of my head' he wrote The Fall of Gondolin 'during sick-leave from the army in 1917', and the original version of Beren and Lúthien in the same year.
