This book has a depressing air to it. OK, but not for you if you like epic stories with the triumph of Good over Evil.

It has a depressing air for me. Everything is a lot more bleak and dark as compared to the Lord of the Rings.
I'm not particularly fond of happily-ever-after endings but I do appreciate if the author doesn't have everyone (or almost everyone) die at the end of the story! And the way Morgoth's curse actually became a reality gave the book a sense of dread. OK read, but this is not for you if you like books that have Good triumph over Evil and that have a good amount of hope.
