As an avid Tolkien fan, I have read this. Then re-read it, and will no doubt do so many more times. I've never gone as far as to say that a book is beautiful, however in the case of The Silmarillion it seems the only fitting way to describe this collection of stories. It's a tough read, but rewarding.

I'm reading this at the moment and to be honest,it's been tough going in parts.I find Tolkien's habit of naming a character or place in the languages of Men,Dwarves and Elves a bit unnecassary at times,but there's no doubt this sets the scene for other books in the series and gives a more complete history to familiar characters from other more well known works,such as Elrond and Galadriel for example.If you've not read Tolkien before,this is the starter from a chronological point of view and if you bear with it,it is a good read!!

  Such a hard read but worth it

Explains pretty much everything behind Middle earth, but if you arent a very strong reader and commited to reading it, i dont reccomend you try.
