really liked it
Read in July, 2009

Gosh, it took about 100 pages before I got into this book. Those first 100 pages read very much like Biblical creation stories, so it took a bit of time before the world was created and more interested conflicts in my opinion became part of the narrative. I did like the short story format and it was really interesting to see the entire vision Tolkien had, the foundation for his other books here in The Silmarillion.

If you enjoyed his other books, I recommend reading this one.
