Description

The #1 New York Times Bestseller

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. This mythopoetic masterpiece is a must-read before you watch The Lord of the Rings on Amazon.

"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

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. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Fëanor, 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 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.

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

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

The Bible of the Middle Earth
By: Ulil Amri

Read this very book long time ago and get me confused, still I managed to finish it. The book is not the typical Tolkienæs book. It's like a Bible with lots and lots of detail related to the Middle Earth. The think I like about this version of the book is the cover. It's simple and strong. The one I had before is different yet this one is unique and powerful (what am I sayin').
