Bea | 2052 comments Thanks Angela! :)

@Sha: Hm, the Silmarillion is not for everbody I guess. I'll be reading it for the third time and I absolutely love it but I know quite a few people can't get into it.
I hope you will like it this time! :)

Sha | 1522 comments Last time I tried I got till the point where Feanor (view spoiler) I was really starting to get into it, and only stopped because it takes a while for me to get through the MANY NAMES and I thought the lack of countable reading points (started it in 2017) would be a deterrent. I fully intend to get farther this time around.

This is a really good resource to refer to while reading the book. I found it helpful last time.

Haha, I love the titles of the articles :)

Also: you don't have to remember all the names! Most of the more important characters can be found in the family trees. If a character isn't in there, he usually isn't that important. (Except Melkor, of course ;) )
