Characters Ð The Silmarillion È PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free And kingdom of Numenor at the end of the Second Age and Of the Rings of Power tells of the great events at the end of the Third Age as narrated in The Lord of the Rings This pivotal work features the revised corrected text and includes by way of an introduction a fascinating letter written by Tolkien in 1951 in which he gives a full explanation of how he conceived the early Ages of Middle eart. Let s beginFirst I m not what people call a Tolkien purist or a Tolkien fanatic or whatever I read Lord Of The Rings only once liked it a lot The Hobbit only once liked it but less than Lord Of The Rings watched the movies and only now I stared The Silmarillion in the eyeAnd I loved it With all my heart The book is majestic breathtaking excting Let me get to some pointsa I completely understand those who not enjoy the writing style or the book itself even thoso who KNOW that this is not a novel but almost a history book of a fictional mythologyb There is violence A lot A lot of violence It s tragedy after tragedy after tragedy after betrayal etc But there is no gore There are no cheap George RR Martin moments herec The Glossary is amazing All one needs to do in order to rembember all the names that appear in the book is to consult the glossary at the end of the bookd I think one should understand the following about the writer s writing style for Tolkien EVERY WORD COUNTS There s no verborragia no filler He is set on a mission to tell a fable and he does so with economy of word but with deep impactThe negative aspect of reading this book is that day after day I enjoy LESS the movies

WARNING SOME SPOILERSI first read Lord of the Rings when I was ten years old Since then I ve been a passionate fan reading the books multiple times throughout the years When I was eighteen I tried to read the Silmarillion it took a few tries but I finally got past the rather heavy slow beginning and had reached the part where Morgoth and Ungoliant escape from Valinor with the Silmarils Then I lost the book and couldn t find it for a long time By the time I did find it I had forgotten a lot of what I d read and couldn t seem to get back into it So I put it aside and the book was lost during a moveI did purchase The Children of Hurin which I loved and have read several timesBut I finally read The Silmarillion last month and now I m like why in the WORLD did I wait so long This book is seriously epic Even the beginning slow as it is is pure poetic prose The names are magic And so much that I hardly noticed in LotR because I didn t understand it makes sense now Beren and Luthien it s so much than just a love story and there s a heroic dog too Earendil I always had a hard time reading through Bilbo s song about Earendil because it was so long and didn t seem to make a lot of sense Now that I know who he was and why he built the ship and journeyed through perilous waters I love the poem and the story behind itAnd elves By the time of LotR they are fading you only get glimpses of who they really are or were In The Silmarillion they are full on amazing Tragic stubborn bull headed valiant so many words to describe them The human characters are awesome too Hurin isn t just Turin s father he is a mighty warrior in his own right and faces Morgoth down and mocks him with tragic conseuences unfortunatelyThis stuff is epic in every sense of the wordWhen I finished reading I was reeling a bit from all the feelings it gave me It was almost like experiencing Lord of the Rings for the first time just this time I was older and able to appreciate it even This is absolute poetry from someone who knew just the right way to make every word sound like music It s also an amazing epic from a man who had some kind of crazy busy imaginationThe Akallabeth is epic too but it s much condensed and doesn t have the same weighty feeling of ancient history though it too takes place long before LotR It s valuable though because in it we learn about the Men of the West where Elendil and Isildur came from and also we see the first rise of Sauron after his own master s defeat The Akallabeth has basically no elves this is a story of men of the rise and then terrible fall of the Numenoreans I can t say that I enjoyed it as much as The Silmarillion but of course it would be hard to top thatIn conclusion I m so glad that I read this at last and though I sort of wish I d read it sooner the first time experience of reading it was so amazing that I m glad it was recent as it still lingers in my mind Go out and buy a copy of it if you enjoyed Lord of the Rings Persevere through those first chapters of set up and the payoff will be worth it I promise
