Comment seen on Facebook: “in terms of the movies, does this book cover the main three or all six?”

Imagine how long the book would need to be to describe in excruciating detail all the interminable physics-defying action scenes in the Hobbit movies.

Alternatively:

Titles.
9 hours of interminable excrement which cannot be described in words.
The End.

A £100+ second impression, no thanks. Outside of Tolkien land there just isn't any real justification for the £150 RRP. I don't understand how/why HC can't use their massive financial leverage to deliver a far better value product. It feels (to borrow a Stu phrase) like a real money-grap.

I'm waiting for someone to tell me it's lovely & a great addition to their collection...

It's lovely & a great addition to my collection.

I respect your honesty.

When a book is faster to read than the movie is to watch you know there will be trouble

Reminds me of the following exchange i had with a young co-worker:

"That guy looks like Ben Kingsley"
"Ben Kingsley?"
"Yeah he played Gandhi"
"Gandhi?"

But yes the discord of Jackson spreads.
