it was ok

Although I absolutely LOVE the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, the Silmarillion was less than entertaining. It was fun to read in some parts concerning the battles between Morgoth and the Elves but otherwise it was like trying to read the Bible for fun. The language and the "this Elf beget that Elf" style of writing were just dull. About as exciting as pressing your face against an operating belt sander.
