More on the Silmarillion
For those that listened to our first Middle Earth Saga podcast episode where we talked about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, you heard us talking about the Silmarillion and it's historical value with Middle Earth. The Silmarillion is the history of the Middle Earth and is a very complex creation by JRR Tolkien. If you haven't heard of this book or perhaps have heard of it, but don't know much about it - TOR.com has put out a good series of blog posts about what it is and provides some basic summaries of the stories included in the book.
So if you're wanting to know more, give it a read or if you want to go straight to the source, check out the links to buy the Silmarillion on Amazon.
