The Silmarillion

The Silmarillion - J.R.R. Tolkien,  Christopher Tolkien I first tried to read this book in junior high school after finishing Lord of the Rings and it was so boring, so I put it down for something a little more exciting. I picked it up again now and I found that I loved it. Maybe I just wasn't ready for it then. It's true, there we're slow parts - the Valaquenta is particularly confusing and not the most action packed, but it's a myth cycle and they're weird - but I found myself really moved by all these epic deeds and great loves. I have a lot of feelings about elves. My favorite part was the Silmarillion proper, and the Sons of Fëanor.
