The beginning of days 3 - the conclusion Can't Post

Well, the remainder of this Chapter seems to have more description than action, in fact some might say that it belongs more in the first two books. Maybe someone is guilty of bad editing. I think I'm talking to you, Chirs Tolkien! Smile So, I think I'll let you all read it and I'll just make some general points.

1) Whatever was cruel or violent or deadly in those days was laid to Melkor's charge. A bit harsh? Now I know that Melkor wasn't very nice so giving him justice may seem a little silly, but surely there where more evil creatures than him! Sauron, Balrogs, Ungoliant, other demons. etc!

2) Aule had the chief part in the making of Valinor and was good at shaping wood metals and tiler. Whatever Tiler is! Thought occurs that he might be good with Computers as well if he was about now!

3) The fairest of all gems were the Silmarils and they are lost. Well why don't you tell me what's about to happen Mr Tolkien? Crazy Though I admit I did have an idea reading through this that this might take place!Smile

4) Spirits in the shape of hawks and eagles flew ever to and from Manwe's halls. So, these creatures where older than any of the Elves? Interesting!

5) The three of the Valar that where more concerned with events outside Valinor where Ulmo, Orome and Yavanna. Explains why I got Orome and Ulmo a bit confused earlier on. Orome pursued to the death the monsters of Melkor. Of what shape where these monsters?

6) To the Atani, Eru gave strange gifts. Strange indeed. Especially if one reads the ending of the tale of Arwen and Aragorn all that time later, it wasn't always gratefully received. Then again, would one really want to live forever throughout all of time. Especially if one could swear a terrible oath and damn yourself for all of it? Not sure!
