tough? they're quite light and easy. Silmarillion's a bit tough the first time around, so is The Lost Tales, but they're much easier second time around.Originally posted by: JellyBaby
They're fair tough books to read. The writing style of the 50s is much different than today. Working on the third book in that series now.

Ahhhhh!! I don't want to know how to "do" a Harry Potter....
Skoorb i am disappointed in you. The Simarillion tells some wonderful stories and I don't find it THAT hard to read. Sure it's harder to get through than LOTR, but I've seen more challenging books.Originally posted by: Skoorb
Silmarillion is a nearly unreadable book. Including myself I know 3-4 other people who have tried reading it and not a one of us could make any headway at all. I'm sure that if I wrote down notes as I went and spent 15 minutes a page I could but I think this is a poor book. It's so complex that I can't conclude anything but that it was badly written.
