I haven't read through all of it, but its basically a dummy's guide to the Silmarillion told rather funnily!

What I've read is pretty good and insightful.

I got half way thru & book marked it for later but, it actually allows the story to sink in !! The Sil is a meaty book, & anything that helps you digest it is ok with me but, Keep to the original.
