    i am a big a fan of Tolkiens works and one of my favourite books by him(his son did most of the editing and piecing together) is the Silmarillion. i was hoping that someone out there has read it as well and maybe discuss it.
    but i will throw in my thoughts after i see some response

    Its quite a good book, and I enjoyed it alot. It can be difficult to get through it at times, due to the style it has been put together in.

    Is there any specific part you want to discuss, or just in general?

    Don&#39;t mind.

    Maybe about Feanor&#39;s exploits, or any of the Five Great Battles, as I can&#39;t remember any of the events to clearly. I know that Feanor&#39;s sons were in one of them...

    one of the most interesting things is how Balrogs were many in force. however, elves battled these great demons one on one.
    this is a example of the might of the elves.

    Wow, now that&#39;s a book I haven&#39;t read in about 15 years&#33; Very good book. But then again there is very little about Tolkiens works that I found disagreeable.

    Yea i read it about five years ago. I loved it, thought it was better that the Lord of the Rings. It is written IMO to resemable a fairy tale or myth and it succeeds very well in getting this across.

    it is a sort of Mythology which makes it so apealing. Tolkein wanted something that was beyond his other stories. he wanted history. not only history of what happened in middle earth, but of the world and creation its self.
    Tolkien never did see the finish of it. his son did, which i think is still very good.
