← Fantasy's Spell on Pop Culture: When Will It Wear Off?

I read a fantasy book the other day. It started with a lone all powerful and eternal god who created the universe, including some angels to help him. One of the angels rebelled and turned to evil but he was cast down and later turned to spreading evil throughout creation.

The god then created the world with its forests, mountains, rivers and oceans. He created a great many wonderful beasts that swam, crawled and flew over the face of the earth. He then made people to dwell on the earth and called them his children.

The rest of the book is about these children and their fight against evil.

The name of this wonderful book? Well, if you haven't already guessed, it's called The Silmarillion.
