I have read the Hobbit three times in the past two years and I have a demanding life. THIS BOY IS NOT WORTHY TO GAISE UPON THE MOVIES WE HAVE BEEN GIFTED WITH!!! Why I oughtta.... *Grumble* *Grumble* *Grumble*
How would reading the book spoil the movies if anything its the other way around. And who the crap do you think you are interpretaing someone else's art being a true fan is whatever you want it to be other people saying they are true fans by reading the book is the same as you saying you are for just watching the movie get off your high horse and let people think what they want if anything you just make yourself look pathetic by thinking you can define what being a "fan" actually is
Frankly, all I see in this is a girl being a complete jerk to a boy who clearly loves something. Who the freak cares if he hasn't read an old book that maybe to hard for him to read. He loves the movie, he loves the story, and the characters. That is what a true fan is.
I adore the Hobbit, I seriously watch it every night now. And I am so excited to watch the second movie. I don't have to read the books to be a fan. I love books, and I will read them after I am done seeing all the movies. But, three movies are from one book. I don't want to spoil three movies by reading it, I don't want to know what happens.
This is kind of the opposite of me. Watching the movie and loving it made me want to read the book. I read the Lord of the Rings after seeing the first movie. After I found out how many books were actually in the middle earth group and how deep the mythology actually goes, I decided I wasn't going to read anymore because it was too much. Then the Hobbit came out and I read that book. Now I'm back in the same spot as before. Every time I get out he (peter Jackson) keeps pulling me back in. lol
Om my gosh this is sooo true! You have no idea how many kids I have met that say they are the biggest LOTR fans and I ask if they have read the book and guess what..... they haven't. I'm like (-.-"), '' Idiots.'' and they are like (^_^), '' Whaaaat?'' Anyways!, wondwerful parody!
I just finished the book of the Hobbit. I couldnt read the other LOTR books though because Tolkien's writing style is do old i couldnt hold my attention on the first one when i got up to the part where Frodo and Co were in the forest after being attacked by a tree.... I feel like a horrible LOTR Fan.....
