"The Silmarillion" a must have for Tolkien fans,
This review is from: The Silmarillion (Paperback)
I read The Silmarillion after watching the movie and reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The background to the epic tale is astounding. This book gives the reader more insight into the World of middle earth than any other written. Many people I know only know of the Hobbit, and the Lord of the Rings. which only glances at the total scenario of Tolkiens' world.Many things that were mysteries to me from the other books are explained vividly. This book is one of the best Ive ever read. It is truly mesmerizing and egulfs the reader into a world that is on a biblical scale. any true Tolkien fan should read this book and I assure you that your whole thought and being for the J.R.R.Tolkien saga will be dramatically changed.
