Including brand-new paintings, this is a fully illustrated new edition of the forerunner to The Lord of the Rings. The Silmarillion fills in the background which lies behind the more popular work, and gives the earlier history of Middle-earth, introducing some of the key characters.
I’m gonna try getting through The Silmarillion again, on audible. I didn’t retain very much info the first time around, so hopefully I can follow along better this time. It’s almost 15 hrs long but I think it’ll take me longer than that cause I’ll be rewinding in order to make sure I understand.
