The rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons Buddy re read with Shii I ve been contemplating whether or not to tackle the challenge of actually reviewing this masterpiece for quite some time now In the end, after having finished reading it for the second time, I realised that I should at least throw out my thoughts on it So here we go This is in my eyes the most impressive book ever written.
Notice how I did not say best That was completely intentional I do not believe it is the best book ever written, even though I know others think so, and I understand their opinions I also know people who have given up on reading this book, or been baffled by the thought of even attempting it And I understand them too This is not the most exciting fantasy book you ll find But I stand by it being the most impressive one.
After almost reluctantly publishing The Hobbit and very reluctantly writing and publishing its sequel The Oh woe begotten spirit, fall now into dark oblivion, and forget for a while the dreadful doom of life I must admit I struggled Though I love the Lord of the Rings and the Middle Earth Universe with all of my heart, tackling a large part of its history in this manner was tough going The world Tolkien created is absolutely extraordinary, without a doubt Unfortunately The Silmarillion is written as a long history or mythology of biblical proportions Name after name, battle after battle, son after son It was hard to follow I can respect how wonderfully intricate and detailed the world is but with that many characters and no straight story to follow through I m pleased to be able to say I ve done it, but I don t think it s one I ll be able to come back to time and again I ll stick to LOTR I think Though I Sauron was become now a sorceror of dreadful power, master of shadows and of phantoms, foul in wisdom, cruel in strength, misshaping what he touched, twisting what he ruled, lord of werewolves his dominion was torment.
Ah, Sauron, Maia of Aul beyond doubt the singularly most enthralling antagonist whom I encountered as a young reader, possessing all of the malevolence and dark charisma and naked power of Satan, but unhobbled by the multi aspectual morphology of Christian theology and popular culture that far too often rendered the Devil a ridiculous figure a wild eyed and beastly fornication ringmaster cavorting with naked acolytes a scarlet skinned, pitchfork wielding fashion model for forked tails and forehead horns or slyly smiling traveling salesman, pitching his gimcrack wares backed by loosely 3.
5 5 starsWith a new interest and determination, I have finally finished reading The Silmarillion.
I have failed this book twice and I was so sure that I won t attempt reading it again However, I have just finished re watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy extended editions and reading the Three Great Tales of Middle Earth that s edited by Christopher Tolkien I know this is not the recommended reading order but it s only because of doing these two activities that I found a new interest, knowledge, and motivation to actually persevere and finish this book.
Picture Fingolfin versus Morgoth by Art CalaveraFinishing The Silmarillion for the first time was one of the most difficult reads I ve ever attempted in my life It was so difficult that in my opinion, reading this book alone was harder than reading the entirety of Malazan Book of the Fallen.
