Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release
Movies would be the only way I'd ever learn the stories of The Silmarillion. I am interested in what they're about, but I have no intention of ever reading them.
The Silmarillion is like the Old Testament. It's full of geneologies, who begat who, creation myths, many different characters with their own long tales, many locations, and it takes place over thousands of years. It really is several dozen books within a single book.
Sir Isaac Newton is the deadliest son-of-a-bitch in space.
