"Is this a Spanish or English version? The decription of the product reads "El Silmarillion", but, the picture of the c.d. set reads "The Silmarillion"."
I tried reading the book, but it was difficult to follow. But with Martin Shaw reading, it takes on a whole new patina. Such a poetic, dreamy and heroic tale. I would think it should be on any English class's must-read list for great english-language literature. For those not familiar with the Simarillion, it's a prehistory to the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. It's odd that Overstock lists this as EL Simarillion, since it's not in Spanish. It came untarnished and on time, though. Get it, listen to it, and dream of heroic times....
The Silmarillion (CD-Audio)
ITEM#: 3035077The Silmarillion tells of the Elder Days, of the First Age of Tolkien's World, when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle Earth, and the High Elves made war upon them for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor. It is to this ancient drama that the characters in The Lord of the Rings so often look back to.
Sit at the feet of the most beloved storyteller of the 20th century and hear how the world came to be. The Silmarillion is told here in a brilliantly faceted audio production, with all the glory of the First Age itself. Dazzlingly performed by Martin Shaw, it sparkles with the magic of the dawn of time--when Elves and Men roamed a world set spinning through space by the haunting music of supernatural choirs. Slip through the shadows and you, too, may catch the whisper of harp-song on the winds of the high air above the mists of the world.
This exclusive audio boxed set of Tolkien's elegant masterpiece is one that will delight fans young and old. It is an extraordinary keepsake to be treasured and listened to again and again.
