Time to reread the Silmarillion

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Inspired by this comment and the following discussion about what exactly the Ring of Power is for. One thing the movie version of The Lord of the Rings certainly didn't make clear was exactly what it was about the Ring that made it so addictive.

I read the Silmarillion over a decade ago and remember being advised to slog it through the first dry parts, and was glad I did, finding it better even than LOTR in many places. The names of most of the characters in such a book tend to vanish from one's memory after a while though and I had to look up the name of the character that I remember liking in particular - I think it was Fingolfin.
