    Ãœbung macht den Meister.

    Hope you enjoy it. It is my favorite book. I've read it cover to cover 100s of times, and practically have it memorized.

    It's a great story. Hope you'll be able to follow it up with Lord of the Rings.

    Oh well. Look at it as a prequel, then.

    Me too. Nothing wrong with reading LotR first. It's just that The Hobbit gives some background to the later book. My bad. I made an assumption that you were taking them in order.

    I saw it at the theatre. I wasn't overly impressed. It could easily have been called "1001 ways to nearly kill a hobbit".

    The LotR movies were great, although for my money, they injected a deal too much humor. The books managed to convey the misery and terror of the almost hopeless task facing the Fellowship. I found that lacking in the movies.

    I really liked the movie. I thought it followed the book well.

    That's how I read them too. I'd never heard of them and someone gave me Fellowship which I devoured once I started it. I read the other two and it was almost 4 years later I found the Hobbit.

    Yes, the books immerse you into another world and the Hobbit isn't necessary, but it is very good and explains a few things. I really enjoyed them all.

    Edit: in fact I am reading a book about Tolkien's art for The Hobbit.
