The Silmarillion tells of the Elder Days, of the First Age of Tolkien's World, when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle Earth, and the High Elves made war upon them for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor.

Watch in amazement as I reduce the wordiest and densest novel of Tolkien's to just five words: It's all about that bling. :P Elves and their bling are nearly as bad as a certain dark lord and his bling. But seriously, one of the greatest things about LOTR, and to a lesser extent The Hobbit, i...

3.0 The Silmarillion
I have complicated feelings about this book. On one hand, I love getting so many of the stories behind the references in trilogy, and there are so many great snippets and character moments, like Heleth leading her people, and little interactions between family members. I haven't read it in fifteen y...
