We have heard the the Silmarillion is a hard book to read and can be confusing. Also that it takes more than one time to truly grasp it. How many times did it take you to read it to truly understand it?
I'll admit, it took me twice. I think this is because the first ever Tolkien book I've read was the Silm. after reading the Trilogy and UT, and referring back to the Silm, I decided to pick it up and read it again and see if things cleared up any more. They truly did! I can read it and have such a clear prospective while reading it, I sometimes surprise myself that it ever confused me in the first place. Has this happened to any of you guys?

It took me two readings to fully grasp it and remember who was who. I mean, even the names can trip you up. There are so many and a lot of them are very similar. But it's an awesome book and a must for every Tolkien fan!
I am currently reading it and I was thinking about stopping but after I read chapter 19 it was a bit easier. I'm planning to read it again after because some of the book went over my head. Could some one summerize the book?
Silver flow the streams from Celos to Erui, In the green fields of Lebennin! Tall grows the grass there. In the wind from the Sea The white lilies sway, And the golden bells are shaken of mallos and alfirin In the green fields of Lebennin, In the wind from the Sea!
My parents gave me a copy of The Silmarillion late on Christmas Eve (10.10 pm) and I finished reading it the next morning (8.30 am). I was 13 at the time and just so hungry for more JRRT, as I had read The Hobbit and LOTR. For me, The Silmarillion was and is, a simple engaging tale that gives structure and understanding to the myths of Middle Earth. Yes, you can deconstruct it but its much easier to be swept up by it and to enjoy the experience. So, I guess the answer to your question is 1.
In my opinion the photographer is very important to find a fine connection between the client, whether it be wedding photography or a separate photo shoot, which will unite them throughout the work.
