Had to chuckle a bit when I read this
over at Pompous Ponderings.

Just finished the Silmarillion. I'll never think of elves the same way again.

Yes, The Silmarillion gives you a lot more insight into the Elven character than you get in The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien's Elves are beautiful, and have amazing abilities, but they are not all sweetness and light ! Of course, as someone who has a bit of a Fëanor fixation, I'm more aware of this than most....
