Reading The Silmarillion.. Good Lord (no pun intended) it is tough going.. Thank god (again, no pun intended) for the Dictionary feature on Kindle, without which i would be lost.. I always knew the work of a master of English & Linguistics was going to be tough.. But, seriously..??
I made a decent stab at this 20+ years ago. Cant recall if I made it to the end but it was incoherent (for me) a good chunk of the time.
The parts that filtered through were wonderful though. Good luck!
@Scottish Andy, copywriting for TV or Print? Or are they similar enough?
