I seen this Sil package at the bookstore the other day, and it had an audio cd of the Sil. I was wondering if it is any good or not? Does anyone hear have it? The package included a hardcover limited edition Silmarillion, postcards, maps, audio cd, and a guide.

I have an audio version of The Silmarillion (on tape). I can't remember who the narrator is, but he does a fantastic job. It's a straight reading of the book and runs something like 13 hours.

Ya, I'll probably buy it, I think it would be a lot easier if you could listen to someone read it while you yourself are reading.

I was going to buy it but was disappointed that it was just a reading. After listening to the BBC dramatization of LOTR, I think I would get bored by a plain reading. I would love for it to be acted out!

But most of it couldn't just be dramatised, because there is not enough dialogue in the book. The narrator would be the one talking for 80-90% of the whole cd.
