Read in October, 2011

Pretty much the only reason this has 4 stars for me instead of 5 is because it is so much that it is just very hard to get through. It is hard to get into a story when you're constantly looking for the explanations of the footnotes, or remembering the references made of things in earlier stories. It is much to fathom, but if you're really, really just as much of a geek as I am... you'll absolutely love every second of it. I know so much more now of everything that has to do with Tolkien's mythology, world-building (for that is what Tolkien did, essentially) and the first sparks of those wonderful stories told in the Silmarillion. And the beauty of it all is, I still have 11 books to go!
