Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Silmarillion (Taschenbuch)
An initial word of warning: The Silmarillion is not the best place to start your Tolkien reading, nor is it a book that many younger or inexperienced readers will want to venture into reading. In many ways, one can consider it The Bible of Middle Earth...and it's written that way.
That said, the sheer scope and majesty of these tales is hard to ignore. Thousands of years of elven history are told, wrought with betrayal and sadness and battle and magic, all told in a skillful and poetic narrative. Tolkien's prose really shines in The Silmarillion, flowing and gorgeous.
What's even better, reading The Silmarillion puts the scope of The Lord of the Rings in context better, allowing one to see "the big picture," if you will. A facinating and enjoyable read that is recomended to all Tolkien lovers.
