So, I'm partially caught up, and just finished chapter 10 (Of The Sindar), and I've really liked it so far. I think that your analysis/summaries are spot on. I really enjoyed the stuff with Melkor and Ungoliant, and the Noldor stuff, especially from their interaction with the Teleri to the destruction of the ships. I completely agree, there are some great movies waiting to be made from The Simlarillion. Hopefully I'll get through chapter 15 this weekend.
