An Unexpectedly Good Journey!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hobbit (Kindle Edition)
After watching the first film, I immediately purchased the book, hoping the old rule of the book being better than the film would stand true and to be truly blown away! I was sadly dissapointed. The first third of the book (which the film covers) is a total bore! Each event seems to be forced through, with long sections devoted to the travels between, leaving me craving more detail and drama rather than the complaints of poor old Bilbo. However, I persevered and I'm glad I did! After a rocky start the book really starts to pick up, submerging itself in action and adventure, making this feel like a true epic of a novel!
