I tried reading the Silmarillion, but I couldn't finish it.

I read it earlier this year ... It took me well over a month to get through the book, because some parts are more interesting than others...

... It is a complex read ...

... Right now it's my brother who's struggling through the book (I lent it to him) - the most challenging to get through are the descriptive parts, or the bits where you can't find the connection with the characters/story...


But Andy Serkis reading The Silmarillion sounds wonderful...

^^ I loved when he did the reading of "The Hobbit" on a YouTube live!

He is underrated

even though he's among the best, and as a voice actor he is superb.
*he even made Gollum/Smeagol into an almost likable character...

^^ That's what I loved about him. His take on Gollum kind of made you pity him rather than just seeing him as a villain.

That's impressive, that he directed as well...

... and yes, his performance was according to how Tolkien imagined Gollum to be, someone who could be pitied at times...
