    Inhaltsangabe

    The complete unabridged audiobook of J.R.R Tolkien's The Silmarillion.

    The Silmarillion is an account of the Elder Days, of the First Age of Tolkien’s world. It is the ancient drama to which the characters in The Lord of the Rings look back, and in whose events some of them such as Elrond and Galadriel took part. The tales of The Silmarillion are set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor.

    Included in the book are several shorter works. 'The Ainulindale' is a myth of the Creation and in the Valaquenta the nature and powers of each of the gods is described. 'The Akallabeth' recounts the downfall of the great island kingdom of Númenor at the end of the Second Age and 'Of the Rings of Power' tells of the great events at the end of the Third Age, as narrated in The Lord of the Rings.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "How, given little over half a century of work, did one man become the creative equivalent of a people?" ( The Guardian)
    "Demanding to be compared with English mythologies...at times rises to the greatness of true myth." ( Financial Times)
    "A creation of singular beauty...magnificent in its best moments." ( Washington Post)
    "A grim, tragic, brooding and beautiful book, shot through with heroism and hope... its power is almost that of mysticism." ( Toronto Globe & Mail)

    Beautiful language

    Very easy to understand the speaker and the language used was simply beautiful! 10/10 would recommend it and perhaps hear it again :)

    Beautifully told story, that itself is marvelous

    I've started to read the Silmarillion as a book and stopped after a while since it got too confusing.

    But listening to this reader, who also modulates his voice for better differentiation of the characters, finally got me hooked and through this wonderful epic by Mr. Tolkien.

    And I most certainly recommend it to everyone else, who is also interested in the epic history of the World of Middle Earth/Arda and how it came to be.

    Furchtbares Buch

    Ähnlicher Schreibstil wie die Offenbarung des Johannes. Ich hab die Herr der Ringe Bücher echt geliebt aber das hier ist schlichtweg Müll im Vergleich.

    Boring

    I love Tolkien's The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings however this was very monotonous. I could not get past the 3hour mark. It is possibly the most monotone audio book I have listened to. I do not recommend it.

    Brilliant but long (very long)

    I am a huge fan of all of Tolkien's work, but Silmarillion is so packed with names, sometimes it was hard to focus. Nevertheless, I could not stop listening to it.
    Still, looking back now, I don't remember 70% of the people and places mentioned. It would be the best to takes notes and make sketches to follow the connections between the characters.

    I should say it is NOT an easy task to listen to this book.

    Kudos to Martin Shaw! Great performance.

    Good book but unnecessary music outros

    story can be a bit hard to follow with all the names of people and places but otherwise quite enjoyable. I really like the voice of this audiobook but the overlaid music at the end of some chapters is extremely distracting to me.

    Buch gefällt mir nicht

    Ich finde das Buch zu abstrakt, vieles wird endlos ausgetreten. Nicht mein Fall, gefällt mir nicht.

    boring and not making much sense...

    boring and not making much sense... nothing compared to the Lord of the ring or the hobbit
