Thoughts On the Silmarillion


Finally reading The Silmarillion through for the first time. I’ve tried to read it a few times but always gotten bogged down before, but somehow I’m finally ready for it. The Tolkien Professor has helped quite a bit, if nothing else just by helping me keep the threads in my mind.

So far, I have two observations:

1) Fëanor is a prick.

2) Man, Maedhros never gets a break, does he?

That’s all for now! More insightful commentary later as my readings of this deep and stirring work continue.

  1. I’ve heard of this. Is there a character in this book by the name of Tom Bombadil? There’s a band called Bombadil, you know.

    Also, um, where iz dat Short Story Geeks Podcast?? Are you guys on hiatus?

    Thanks for your time! 🙂

    1. We have an episode recorded and overdue, but every time I go to edit it, something else jumps out of a cupboard at me. Sorry for the wait!
