Books made into Movies – The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien

14 Oct

Description

Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort. But the wizard Gandalf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse unknown dangers. Finally, it was Bilbo–alone and unaided–who had to confront the great dragon Smaug, the terror of an entire countryside . . .

This stirring adventure fantasy begins the tale of the hobbits that was continued by J.R.R. Tolkien in his bestselling epic The Lord of the Rings.

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

You can buy the book from Amazon or The Book Depository.

About the movie / Despre film

The Hobbit is an upcoming film series consisting of three epic fantasy-adventure films. The films are, by subtitle, An Unexpected Journey (2012), The Desolation of Smaug(2013) and There and Back Again (2014).

Synopsis for An Unexpected Journey
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths ofguile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

Sinopsis

Aventura urmăreşte călătoria personajului principal Bilbo Baggins, care ia parte la o expediţie de proporţii epice, pentru a redobândi de la fiorosul dragon Smaug regatul pierdut al gnomilor, Erebor. Abordat pe nepusă masă de vrăjitorul Gandalf cel Sur, Bilbo se alătură unui grup de treisprezece gnomi, conduşi de legendarul războinic Thorin Scut de Stejar. Călătoria lor îi va purta în Ţara Pustietăţii, pe tărâmuri înşelătoare, pline de goblini, wargi, orci, şi vrăjitori.

Deşi ţinta lor se află la răsărit, către Muntele Singuratic, ei trebuie mai întâi să treacă prin tunelurile goblinilor, unde Bilbo o întâlneşte pe creatura care îi va schimba viaţa pentru totdeauna… Gollum. Singur cu Gollum pe malurile unui lac subteran, neştiutorul Bilbo Baggins nu doar că descoperă în el însuşi un curaj şi o ingeniozitate care îl surprind şi pe el, dar intră şi în posesia “preţiosului” inel al lui Gollum, cu calităţi misterioase şi foarte folositoare. Un simplu inel de aur, de care se leagă soarta întregului Pământ de Mijloc într-un mod pe care Bilbo nici nu şi-l poate imagina încă.

Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.

Goblets they carved there for themselves,
And harps of gold, where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves.

The pines were roaring on the heights,
The winds were moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The bells were ringing in the dale,
And men looked up with faces pale.
The dragon’s ire, more fierce than fire,
Laid low their towers and houses frail.
