    "After reading the Lord of the Rings series, I was very interested in this type of fantasy fiction. When I found The Silmarillion I immediately jumped on it because of it's relation to Lord of the Rings. I loved the book and was really into reading about the who the characters of from Lord of the Rings really are and where they come from."

    "Lord of the Rings fans will love Tolkien's The Silmarillion. These tales help set the stage for the author's beloved Lord of the Rings series. Inside you'll find a letter of introduction from Tolkien himself and beautiful illustrations from Ted Nasmith that many have never seen before. "

    "This is an amazing book. It is in every sense the equal of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien writes in such description that he pulls you right into his world, and such a beautiful world it is. I would recommend highly."

    "The Silmarillion is not as well-known as the Lord of the Rings trilogy or The Hobbit, and that's a shame. Wonderfully imaginative, this is well worth the read for any serious fan of the Middle-Earth saga. This book carries all the fantastic spirit and insight that Tolkien's other more famous works, and then some! I bought this while deep in a fantasy binge, and I never regretted a single page of it."

    "If you are familiar with the Lord of the Rings series, you are likely familiar with the concept of this book. It's very different from the other books by J.R.R. Tolkien, but adds a fantastic amount to the rich history of Tolkien's world. It does have an unfinished feel (because it was), but it will forever change your understanding of Middle Earth."

    "Love this book! If you like high fantasy or Lord of the Rings, definitely give this a read."
  • Maria Garrett
    Written on May 15, 2018
    "This book contains stories about the Silmars. They are elves who are imprisoned in the Land of Gods. The book also features small stories of other creatures and contains many stories that are familiar to us in some way."
  • Kyle Ellis
    Written on April 26, 2018
    "The Silmarillion is the beginning of the epic story connected to the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien. It sets up the storylines for all the characters you know from the main trilogy. A must read."
  • Amanda Carter

    "This is not an easy read for any time of reader. The volume of character and place names the reader needs to keep track of is enough to turn many readers away."
