Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is beautiful... an enchanting tale of tragedy and triumph... The Silmarillion is magical in teh grand old style." The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Majestic!... Readers of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings will find in The Silmarillion a cosmology to call their own, medieval romances, fierce fairy tales, and fiercer wars that ring with heraldic fury... It overwhelms the reader." Time Magazine

"Heart-lifting... a work of power, eloquence and noble vision... Superb!" The Wall Street Journal

"Essential reading for Tolkien lovers and an important book." The Baltimore Sun

"A creation of singular beauty... magnificent in its best moments." The Washington Post

Reviewed in India on December 2, 2018
Wanted to read this book for the past 12 years. Now finally I got this beautiful piece of work.

About the quality of the book:

This is one of the best quality books out there. Printed on glossy paper. Beautiful illustrations by Ted Nasmuth. Comfortable fonts. Good binding. Its a bit heavy though, so you cannot carry it around. You will need to put it down to read this. This edition is printed in England and imported.

About the story:

The Silmarillion is a collection of mythopoeic works by English writer J. R. R. Tolkien, it is the story of the creation of the world and of 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.

This is the history of the rebellion of Fëanor 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.

If you are a fan of Tolkien and liked the Lord of the brings and Hobbit definitely get this. You will understand so much more of the stories and third history in middle Earth.
