Question for Tolkien readers

I just finished reading Silmarillion, which is said to have described the First age/First era (I don't know the original term), and Lord of the rings is supposed to be about the Third age.

So...where is the Second age?

Hmm, I believe Tolkien wrote a bit about the Second Age at the beginning of Lord Of The Rings. However, my sister has been reading that book for more than a year now (and I'm at work at the moment) so I cannot check it.

I think Tolkien never managed to describe it as he took so long finishing Lord Of The Rings, etc. He was mortal, after all. It could have been quite interesting though (describing the first wars against Sauron and such).

C ya!

i'm reading Silmarillion at the moment... not the easiest book I've read. I'm having big problems separating all characters, and especially all the different 'groups' of elves. I have a feeling it will take quite some time to finish..
