    A Great Listen

    I enjoyed listening to this audiobook very much. The Silmarillion is a collection of stories that detail the mythical history of Tolkien's Middle Earth in a similar fashion to the Bible: each chapter is like a separate story with recurring characters, which builds upon the history of the world as a whole. This may be off-putting to anyone looking for a fantasy story which follows a small group of heroes, but if you enjoy Lord of the Rings (even if you have only seen the movies) and want to know more about Tolkien's world, then I definitely recommend this book. Martin Shaw makes a great performance for the audiobook, sounding as if he were a character from the setting recounting an ancient tale. Between chapters, atmospheric music fades in and out to help set the mood. I did run into a sound issue during a few chapters where the sound would cut out on just one speaker, Martin Shaw would state the name of the chapter, then return to the narration (while the opposite speaker audio functions normally), but overall the quality of the writing and narration made it a small issue to overlook.

    The Silmarillion

    This was an epic and awesome story, and an amazing history of the ancient days of Middle-Earth and beyond.
