Has anyone ever read the Silmarillion? I was thinking about ordering it,but wanted some opinions before doing so. TIA
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Can't tell you anything personally but I asked the same thing to some people a whole back and they recommended it. I bought it a few months back but I'm still trying to finish the "Odd Thomas" series by Dean Koontz. It's the next on my list once I finish it. I still have about four more books to get through.
i tried when I was 13... I couldn't read back then so I failed.
Thanks for the input man, I think I am gonna order it. +1
Think i got through the whole thing, know i tried. Read like a history book.
I enjoyed it but you have to be a pretty big Tolkien fan otherwise it may be a tad dull
I am planning on reading it over break.
My roommate told me it was pretty heavy on strange elf names and reads kind of like a history book. I think I'll enjoy it though
I read it some years ago. It reads almost like a "bible" if someone living in middle earth found it. Talks about the creation of their world with mythological stories.

To me, the Silmarillion is the best of Tolkien's stories. It is a tough read, lots of names and the chapters tend to jump around from story line to story line. Well worth the effort in my opinion.
This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Thanks everyone, +1 to all
Take quite a bit of time with development of the timeline and characters, but is a good read.
