Nerdist Book Club: THE SILMARILLION

Nerdist Book Club: THE SILMARILLION « Nerdist.

Over on Nerdist.com Amy Ratcliffe is starting a book club. The first book she’s selected is J.R.R.Tolkien’s The Silmarillion which I read right before returning to college in 2012.

It starts off slow but by the end I really loved it and contains the most intense stories J.R.R. Tolkien has ever written.

The Silmarillion was intended to be the three-volume Translations from the Elvish Bilbo wrote in Rivendell and later left to Frodo. Christopher Tolkien later said he regretted not making this apparent in the published copy of the book.
