HASH(0x9c19fa38) out of 5 stars The First Age Was Never So Fun! Oct. 15 2004
By D. L. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
DR Lloyd has followed in the footsteps of the Harvard Lampoon's "Bored of the Rings" with a delightful, if dense, retelling of the Silmarillion. This book is really only for die-hard Tolkien fans, but if you are up for it you will not be disappointed.
The best part of Lloyd's work is in "re-imagining" (as Tim Burton might say) the endless parade of elf and mortal names, god and goddesses, rivers, lakes and streams... on and on with great results. Enter, if you dare, the evil world of Mostgoth and his minions, the irks... Join Cootiegerm and Curad as they struggle to regain the prized creation of their father, the Siliputi... and laugh all the way.
This parody isn't as good as Bored of the Rings, but it stands by itself as a loving tribute of a Tolkien nerd to the Professor (who undoubtedly would not approve!).

HASH(0x9c19fc84) out of 5 stars Silly Sillymarillion! Nov. 26 2006
By Julian P. Huff - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well, unlike "Bored of the Rings," this book is newly written. It doesn't suffer from the dated terms and humor of the former and the author is very creative with the jokes and twisted words he uses to make this an intelligent at times but generally silly parody of the original work. Again, if you don't mind a little fun being poked at a literary classic, this book will give you a few smiles and maybe even some full on laughter.

I rate this work as first rate for the type of work it is (parody). Can't think of much that could have been done better with it.
HASH(0x9c19fc48) out of 5 stars The Sillymarillion is a numbero uno Jan. 17 2014

This book is hilarious! I mean that...even in the first few lines, I literally cracked. Lloyd did it right with the shaping and homage to the Silmarillion (which I have read...) and I give this book 5 thumbs up!
HASH(0x9c19ff3c) out of 5 stars Silmarillion, but readable Jan. 22 2013
By civwarchick - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My first copy ran away and I haven't seen it in years, so I was thrilled to find this listing!

I have a very checkered past with the Silmarillion. I have tried to read it three times, and every time I failed to make it more than 1/3 through the book. I don't know why, but I cannot persevere over it.

The Sillymarillion is wonderful, though, because it gives me all the background knowledge that a lover of (almost) all things JRRT should have, while being funny and well-paced. If you can't get through the Silmarillion, read this first and then try again.

HASH(0x9c19ff9c) out of 5 stars Dangerous for people with recent abdominal surgery. Oct. 22 2008
By Archer, Servant of Lord Bob - Published on
Format: Paperback
Perhaps I should first explain the title of this review. Every time I open this book (to any random page) and allow myself to read, I nearly bust a gut from laughing. Now, I will admit to being one of the world's biggest fans of 'The Silmarillion', but I also have a huge sense of humor. I love a good parody. This book is SO silly (in a good way) that you'll derive hours of red-faced, tear-streaked enjoyment from it.

You must have read 'The Silmarillion' to get the impact(a parody is pretty meaningless if one has not read the original), and if you are a 'Tolkien Zealot' you will need to suspend your zeal for the moment and just enjoy this book for what it is: hilarious!

Highly recommended (except to people who have recently undergone abdominal surgery)
