As a fan of fantasy, especially The Hobbit, I am very excited about this weekend’s release of the first Hobbit movie. At first I was a little skeptical of the book, intended as a story for children, being broken up into three parts, but after doing a bit of reading as to why they chose to do this, I am even more excited te see the films! J.R.R. Tolkien had more material pertaining to the Hobbit and the story of the ring in Appendices in the Lord of the Rings. This material is to be added to the movies.
The Hobbit releases this Friday. Copies of the book are available here in the library and on Overdrive.
