I want to highlight this.

In parts Hobbit actually does emanate heart and emotion, more so than the book, but the source material just doesn't offer that much in that regard, at least not until the end.

I feel like sometimes people are seeing the book through rose colored glasses.

I am a great Tolkien devotee - but all those complaining that it is impossible to ciritisize PJ on this board should read up what some people have to listen to who dare to complain about the book or just question a detail of it.

No, one does not have to be a action-flick loving fankiddy who has no sense for true art to be critical of a lot in Tolkien's works. If some people would look beyond the borders of the Fan-Shire once in a while they would see that a lot of very intelligent people and critics have not that much love for Tolkien. And not all this criticism can be dismantled by saying "They did not get it" as it is often used on boards like this to react to criticism concerning the Professor.

ďAll good stories deserve embellishment."

Praise is subjective. And so is criticism.

"I am afraid it is only too likely to be true what you say about the critics and the public. I am dreading the publication for it will be impossible not to mind what is said. I have exposed my heart to be shot at."
