Review: Silmarillion

Author: J.R.R Tolkien 

Series:   Silmarillion

Publication Date: 1999 

Rating: Recomended

Summary: Before the rings,  the silmarils and trees of light were there. Before Sauron, Melkor twisted the elves. The Silmarillion reveals all that was before the rings of power. It shows what happened in the very beginning. The Silmarillion tells all from the Valar's origins, to the tale of Luthien and Beren, to the start of Sauron.

What I liked: This book was great. It explains everything that a reader would want to know after reading Tolkien's Lord of The Rings. The collection of tales residing under the cover are truly magical. The only thing I did not like, were the tales that overlapped some-what. Otherwise, it was amazing!
