I just read about the book
The Silmarillion and thought I'd like to buy it, but I'm a little confused about the different versions that I found.
On amazon I found foremost these two versions (I hope it's okay to include links here)
On the German site (where I'd like to buy), they are directly available from amazon, but at greatly different prices (26.10 Euro vs. 9.50 Euro).
I cannot see any difference whatsoever except of the Hardcover/Paperback thing.
Is it really the same book (only with a different cover) or are there differences? Is there any point of buying the expensive one or can I be scroogy?
