This review is from: The Silmarillion (Paperback)
I love the Hobbit.
I love Lord of the Rings (read twice)
I cannot read the Silmarillion - way too confusing/difficult to read.
Much as I love fantasy an immersing myself in a different world, this one is beyond me.I cannot believe this book would appeal to many as the poems and stories of ancient worlds are so disjointed I found myself totally lost with 10 pages.

I really urge you to press on with the S'ion if you're a true Tolkien fan; this piece really is his best work; go on, have a go; you've bought the book after all

Try reading it on the kindle where you have access to the internet and can highlight names, places and events to get instant knowledge about them. Surely you can't get lost that way! I tried it with LOTR and it was an excellent way to refresh your memory about the more obscure phrases, people and places....

Stick with it, just let the words flow over you, refer to the back of the book when necessary and soon it all becomes clear....
