The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien Book Summary

The #1 New York Times Bestseller

The Silmarillion is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before The Hobbit. This mythopoetic masterpiece is a must-read before you watch The Lord of the Rings on Amazon.

“Majestic! ... Readers of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings will find in The Silmarillion a cosmology to call their own, medieval romances, fierce fairy tales, and fiercer wars that ring with heraldic fury... It overwhelms the reader.”—Time

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 Fëanor, 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 Fëanor 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.

“A creation of singular beauty ... magnificent in its best moments.”—The Washington Post

“Heart-lifting ... a work of power, eloquence and noble vision... Superb!”—The Wall Street Journal

Amazing story!. Decided to buy the book after reading the review accusing Tolkien of being a racist. Thanks for the motivation!

I’m buying this. Buying this to read along with the audio book

Uncomfortably racist. Mentions of a superior race of elves. Then uncomfortably mentions that they’re fair skinned, with blonde hair and blue eyes. Two thumbs down. Do not buy!!!!

صلاح. كتاب رائع

Nice story. Great if you are a Tolkien fan and this book will help you understand the context of what is happening in later books. With that being said, the writing style is tedious and too many characters appear- this is part of creating a whole mythology
