On another point, I read The Hobbit with a class of 12 year olds after I had read and fallen in love with LotR in my teens. I was disappointed and, as an English teacher, saw many, many flaws in Tolkien's work. After numerous readings and discussions with pupils, I have come to enjoy and appreciate it BUT only because I have made excuses for Tolkien, coming up with reasons as to why he did the things he did, in the same way as I have learned to love PJ's films after trying to understand the reasons behind his decisions. Neither writer nor film-maker is perfect and it does Tolkien no favours treating him as a god and PJ as a blight upon this impossible perfection.
