The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien

This was definitely not my favorite Tolkien book (I found it slow and hard to get through), but I'm glad I stuck with it. There is certainly some interesting history for the more popular Lord of the Rings books here. I was most impressed with how a single person created an entire mythology for the world of Middle Earth -- really amazing.
