Tolkien considered The Silmarillion his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in The Lord of the Rings look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. The Silmarillion is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy.… (mais)

A very interesting and beautifully written history of Middle-Earth; required reading for those who want to understand Lord of the Rings' many references to its own mythology and cultures. Although, yes, some parts dragged a bit, overall it was an entertaining read. It is very much the official history book of Tolkien's fictional world. I can only imagine what it would read like had Tolkien actually finished it in his lifetime. ( )

As much as I like Tolkien, this book was an absolute struggle to read and enjoy. He may have an interesting basis for the mythology and history of Middle Earth, but the way that this book presents the stories of the Valar, the first elves, and the rise of men was worse than any mythology book I’ve ever read. Tolkien attempts to mimic the stylings of the Prose Edda, which undoubtedly is a classic in mythic literature, but this does not automatically make it in any way an enjoyable read; oral myths are told in poetic form for a reason, and without this rhythmic structure to keep the reader’s mind engaged the narrative quickly devolves into a dull listing of events. No wonder David Day created the Tolkien Bestiary - without this summary I’m sure that many readers would write Tolkien off completely. ( )

I, and the rest of the teenage nerd kingdom, went on a LOTR kick in the late 1990's - early 2000's, and in my case, this resulted in a mad attempt to read everything Tolkien had ever written -- the twelve volume history of Middle-Earth notwithstanding. I love the Sil as a body of work intricately and carefully written, but it is so dense and challenging that I don't go back to it often. ( )
  resoundingjoy | Jan 1, 2021 |
A little dense, but a great set of "backstory" to the [book Lord of the Rings] that an true fan should find delightful. ( )

I read The Silmarillion as a young teenager, after having read [b:The Lord of the Rings|34|The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, Part 1)|J.R.R. Tolkien|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1156043001s/34.jpg|3204327] through a few times, and recalled liking it, but did not recall very much of it--and, as I discovered listening to it this time around, the parts that I recalled were not quite accurate. I won't review the actual story here, but just the audio version of this work.

The narration is well done. It has the feel of a wise teacher relating history and lore to a throng of willing ears. Also, it allows one to focus on the stories rather than pondering the proper pronunciation of the names of characters and places mentioned in the text.

The hard part of listening to a book like The Silmarillion is that one can easily find one's mind wandering. Although mostly interesting, there are some parts that, while adding to the respect one must give to Tolkein for his craft and perniciousness, are quite dull. I listened to the bulk of this book in my car while driving on the highway at night, which worked well because I did not have much else to distract me. However, the times when I listened while performing another task that required even minimal attention, I found that I had to repeatedly go back to an earlier part because the story had moved in an unknown or unexpected direction. While this is somewhat true of other audiobooks, the complexity of the story and the similarity of the names of some of the characters made it even more difficult to follow at times.

This is a definite "must-listen" for anyone who has enjoyed Tolkein's more popular works and has a taste for more Middle Earth. ( )

At its best Tolkien's posthumous revelation of his private mythology is majestic, a work held so long and so power fully in the writer's imagination that it overwhelms the reader. Like Tolkien's other books, The Silmarillion presents a doomed but heroic view of creation that may be one of the reasons why a generation growing up on the thin gruel of television drama, and the beardless cynicism of Mad magazine, first found J.R.R. Tolkien so rich and wonderful.
adicionado por Shortride | editarTime, Timothy Foote (Oct 24, 1977)
 
If "The Hobbit" is a lesser work that the Ring trilogy because it lacks the trilogy's high seriousness, the collection that makes up "The Silmarillion" stands below the trilogy because much of it contains only high seriousness; that is, here Tolkien cares much more about the meaning and coherence of his myth than he does about these glories of the trilogy: rich characterization, imagistic brilliance, powerfully imagined and detailed sense of place, and thrilling adventure. Not that these qualities are entirely lacking here.

The Silmarillion, now published four years after the death of its author, is an account of the Elder Days, or the First Age of the World.
There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Ilúvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made.
Eru var, den Ene, i Arda kaldet Ilúvatar.

"And thou, Melkor, shalt see that no theme may be played that hath not its utternmost source in me, nor can any alter the music in my despite. For he that attempteth this shall prove but mine instrument in the devising of things more wonderful, which he himself hath not imagined."
Among the tales of sorrow and of ruin that come down to us from the darkness of those days there are yet some in which amid weeping there is joy and under the shadow of death life that endures.

This LT Work is for The Silmarillion, a posthumous publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's over-arching work on Middle-Earth, which includes episodes from its creation, through the First Age, and to the end of the Third Age. The Silmarillion is neither part of nor prequel to Tolkien's monumental The Lord of the Rings, which (together with The Hobbit; or, There and Back Again) tells in detail of events leading to the end of the Third Age. Please do not combine The Silmarillion with The Lord of the Rings, with any part(s) thereof, with any other Tolkien work, or with any separate part of a multi-volume edition of the complete Work. Thank you.
