I found this book, "The Silmarillion" The first thing that I noticed is
1. Its by J.R.R. Tolkien
2. It looks pretty fucking old, and the fact that I have never heard of it, makes me think it might be pretty old.

I open the front page and I look at what books the author wrote ( I knew it was LOTR) but what intrigued me is that It had listed the main LOTR series, which made me think it isn't as old as I thought(Maybe coming after the main series, I think.), but its pretty fucking beat up. Anyone ever heard of/read this book?

I have it.

I gave up trying to read it after the first page. It is almost undecipherable.

i read some of it

it about the origins of middle earth.

I felt like i was reading the bible in terms of how you can read 50 pages and nothing will have happened.

I've read it all the way through, nothing really happens. It's not even really by Tolkien, but his son.

Yeah, Tolkien's son went back to a lot of his father's notes and unpublished works and put them together after his death.

I liked it.

The thing you have to realize is that it isn't one story.

It's various stories that are kinda related because they're all going on in the same area (sometimes)

the beginning is boring since it's about the valor and stuff, but when the elves finally come back to middle-earth it's more interesting

I'm loving this book, I found a two dollar bill and a Canadian note (I don't know what they use) in the book. The begging pages are the only ones hard to understand but you get used to how the sentence structure and the flow of the words are, you get used to it fairly quickly. The Valar and the creation of arda and the other realms is very interesting. As I said before, ima liking this book Very Happy

Death, Canadians use dollars.

Also, I think that I tried to read it a couple of years ago, and hated it.
