The Silmarillion

 

This story takes place a long while before the events that led to the creation of the ring played out and is often considered out to be one among the first in the series. The book remains true to its earlier variants and describes the middle earth in rich vivid detail. Tolkien has managed to outdo himself with this book as he gets the characters to evolve with every edition of his book. Filled with enthralling descriptions, the book stands out for all the right reasons which are why it is also one of J.R. Tolkien Bestsellers
