The Silmarillion - J.R.R. Tolkien - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of the book The Silmarillion:

The mythology of Middle Earth.

My favorite J.R.R. Tolkien quote from the book:

"For if joyful is the fountain that rises in the sun, its springs are in the wells of sorrow unfathomable at the foundations of the Earth."


Questions I pondered while reading The Silmarillion:


Is there creation in music?

Does knowing the mythology strengthen the story?

My Thoughts about The Silmarillion:


Spelunking into Middle Earth.

I have always wanted a Star Cake.

Can anyone get enough of J.R.R. Tolkien's world?
