look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
 
1.
A masterpiece written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published by his son Christopher Tolkien, less known than The Lord of the Rings. It tells you how the Middle-earth was created and expands the knowledge of the events that took place in the First and Second Age.
If you have seen or read The Lord of the Rings and you haven´t read The Silmarillion.... you don't know anything about the Middle-earth.
