  • Mood:

Books shouldn't be painful

Has anyone here read The Silmarillion? Has anyone read it and enjoyed it? Does it get better? I'm on Ch5 of the main story and I swear, it's like reading the Bible - 'and this name that sounds just like that name begat the other name, and they wandered in the desolation for ages.' Oh and thanks for giving every group of beings at least a couple of names, if not giving several names to the same characters.

Most tedious reading ever.

Does it get better? Is there any point? This book is currently >< that close to being only the second book ever that I wasn't willing to continue reading (and I've read all 10 Mission Earth books)
