*g* yes, sorry about that. I'd just been checking that site for a nice horse for my story.

I agree. He is not my ideal Beleg either, but he happened to be in my dream cast -- dunno why, my imagination played tricks on me apparently. He might be a good movie Turin, you're right Very Happy

But of course you'd rather not have him play Túrin since he's such a jerk, right? Wink

As to Beleg: someone really tall, strong, but slender, commanding, graceful and able to move with stealth, and probably with dark hair and grey eyes.

hmm, have no idea ... too bad, he sounds rather attractive. Very Happy

Oh, I'm glad I asked this!

I bought the book when it came out, and started it straightaway, but RL was so difficult at the time I simply couldn't finish it. It's only now that I've been able to take it up again.

But I, too, was thinking what a wonderful film it would make (though they might have to give it a happy ending, Very Happy ) I think Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian) would make the perfect Turin.

I feel that Turin is cursed more by Tolkien than by Morgoth. Every time the poor thing tries to pick himself up, Tolkien says, "No, you're my anti-hero," and sends him off on another spiral of disaster.

Then, kind of like Anne Tyler in that way ... Confused Rolling Eyes

Shocked Shocked Oh dear - I hope not! But you're probably right. It would completely ruin the story. Sad

Yes, it really is amazing how many wrong decisions one person can make.

Well, Turin's story was written with the Völsunga saga in mind, if I remember correctly, since there are so many similarities between the two. Both heroes meet tragic ends.

I personally hated the book, but enjoyed the lovely illustrations.Very Happy The only reason I bought it was to increase my collection of Tolkien books.
