What the community says about The Silmarillion
- "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. "
- "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."
