    I just got The Silmarillion! :):)

    I am so happy! :D:D:D

    It was either this or Beren and Luthien, which as hardcover is in American $30.00!! :eek::eek::eek:

    Time for the most heroic yet depressing reading of my life!

    Namarie!

    Good luck!! It is much denser than its size suggests! o_O
    It's definitely sad at parts, but it's so beautiful that I find it to be uplifting overall instead of depressing:)

    Even though it's hard to decide because of how interwoven it is with the rest of Tolkien's mythology, The Silmarillion is my favorite book ever still! I read it in highschool and was not super impressed but OH MY has it grown on me. It's SO COOL to read it and be familiar with it and then read things like Children of Hurin and the complete stories in Unfinished Tales! I find myself being continually amazed at how detailed and exact Tolkien's world is.

    It is truly a lovely read. It's such a rich and vibrant mythology that it almost feels real! You get sucked in and never let out! (I don't want to be!)

    I KNOW! I am so glad I have been able to experience all these earth-shattering events in Arda with every character!

    I am too! Too bad in America, it's $30.00! It's hardback though, so, when I have enough dough, I'll bite.

    I am currently on Chapter 14: Of Beleriand and its Realms in the Quenta Silmarillion.

    It's all so exciting!

    The first time I read the Silmarillion, I kept a book mark at the back where all the family trees were printed.

    The Silmarillion is my favorite and I'm not able to explain why. It's really something special.
