The Hobbit and Pinterest

Wednesday, December 5, 2012
I just finished re-reading The Hobbit for the ... let's say 100th time because I don't really know. I'm not going to review it but you all need to know that it's one of my favourite books, like, ever.

I read it first when I was about 12 and from then, it became my go-to book whenever I was home sick. I borrowed my brother's old copy which had a page missing but I didn't care.

I've gone through a couple more copies since then and my latest is the one on the left, with illustrations by Alan Lee. I have the Lord of the Rings of this set, too.

The movie opens next week and as much as I love the book, I'm ambiguous about the movie. I was super-excited when the Lord of the Rings were being made, I tracked all the news, bought the extended DVDs ... I love it all is what I'm trying to say.

And, don't get me wrong, I think Martin Freeman is perfect to play Bilbo, I just ... *sigh*. I wish it wasn't three movies. One movie would have me dancing in the aisles. I was even excited about two movies. But. Three movies. Plus I can't watch 3D because it makes me vertigo-y ... lol look at my first world problems ...

Anyway .... I have pinterest and embarrassingly, I've JUST worked out how it works and decided that it's awesome so follow me there: http://pinterest.com/justaddbooks/

It took me forever to figure out how pinterest works, so don't be embarrassed - there are more of us out there than you know! :--)

I just found your blog and this post, and I have to admit I breathed I sigh of relief! I honestly thought I was the only LOTR/Hobbit/Tolkien fan who was feeling not so over-the-moon about the movie! I'm sure it'll be great, but I am really just not in the mood for another trilogy. As much as I love the LOTR movies, watching them is emotionally exhausting! I wish they would just make an awesome stand-alone movie and leave it at that.

Hi! Welcome! :D :D Yes, exactly. I think The Hobbit would have been fantastic as one, great movie, but a second trilogy out of such a small book ... (I saw it on Thursday. I liked it, but didn't love it.)
