Get the fabulous book, but don’t bother with the film

Have your say

My older brother summed up The Hobbit thus: ‘I can’t believe I wasted my money watching a bunch of ****s walk along hilltops and then go into holes – again.’

I agree with him, but we appear to be very much in the minority for thinking what a pile of pants the whole thing is.

And, what’s worse is that The Hobbit (a fabulous and much-loved book) has been split into three parts.

You could read it in less time than it takes to watch the first instalment on the big screen.

I recommend that you do read it.

Then save the money you would have spent on tickets and preserve your sanity by ignoring director Peter Jackson’s latest cinematic offering.
