    The best Silmarillion stories

    If you have read Silmarillion, please take a moment to vote in the poll.

    Still, a lot of people have read and liked the book, and some have also read the books of unfinished tales and the like which the Tolkien estate have continued to publish. If we with a pinch of salt and tounge in cheek allow ourselves to take such more fleshed-out tales as Gondolin's fall as part of the Silmarillion's stories, which one is your favourite? If you feel like it, please explain why in this thread.


    For myself, that's the Darknening of Valinor and the flight of the Noldor, with Gondolin's fall right behind it. Even the ace story with mustering houses and battle desriptions on par with those in The Return of the King cannot beat FŽanor's rage and destructive thirst for vengeance, or his death at the hands of a whole squadron of Balrogs. Way to go.
