Item Description...
Tales and legends chronicling the world's beginnings and the happenings of the First Age, focusing on the theft of the Simarils--the three jewels crafted by Feanor--by Morgoth, first Dark Lord of Middle-earth.

Publishers Description
A number-one New York Times bestseller when it was originally published, THE SILMARILLION is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before THE HOBBIT.
Tolkien considered THE SILMARILLION his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in THE LORD OF THE RINGS look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. THE SILMARILLION is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy.
This second edition features a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien describing his intentions for the book, which serves as a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages of Middle-earth.

A Writer's Masterpiece  Mar 30, 2007
Tolkien wasn't just a good fantasy writer, he was an amazing writer overall! For those who crave to know what went before the Lord of the Rings, this is your book. After you read this, it will be like the Lord of the Rings has changed from black-and-white into technicolor. Superb!
Very good Tolkien book  Mar 26, 2007
The Silmarillion is a great book and a must for any Tolkien fan. It provides a lot of background for the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the whole Middle Earth mythology in general. It's a tough read, especially for those expecting an adventure novel, since it's more like a history book than anything else. I'd highly recommend this to anyone interested in Tolkien's works.
neat!!!  Feb 9, 2007
i recently purchased this amazing boxed set of the silmarillion (sil). it's amazing i put it on my ipod and i listen to it while i work out, the ipod process took awhile since it's unabridged but that's the only way i and any real tolkien fan would want it....simply amazing
Audio book version finally got us hooked  Feb 2, 2007
My husband and I all are both Tolkien fans but neither of us had managed to really get into the Silmarillon. The book's length and somewhat stiff narrative slowed us up or put us off. Finally we heard that the audio book version was good and thought we'd give it a try.

While the beginning "creation myth" may still be a bit slow for some people the audio book version overcame many of the book's obstacles. The reader has a clear, sonorous, English-accented voice which is a perfect match with the tone of the story. His commanding narration bought to life the tragic tale and completely engrossed us in the story in a way that the book failed to do.
The absolute best of Tolkien  Jan 26, 2007
Have you ever wanted to know the stories BEHIND all the characters in LOTR? Ever wondered why the elves are immortal? Do you want more information on the wizdards?? Are you curious how Sauron forged the "One Ring"? GET THE SILMARILLION!! I started reading The Lord of the Rings when I was in 9th grade. I never finished it until I saw the movies. I became obsessed with the trilogy. After reading all 3 books, I wanted a clearer understanding of where all the cool characters came from. The Silmarillion is THE BOOK and THE KEY to understanding and enjoying LOTR. A MUST for any fan of Middle Earth!
