I think that [In reply to] Can't Post

"Read the book" is going to be the best answer you'll get around here.
It may not be the quickest: one of us telling you'd be much simpler for you. BUT... there's no way of comparing two different media on one story (e.g. book version vs. film version of The Hobbit) than by doing the comparing yourself. I've just round off a 7-week course called "Broadway to Hollywood" in which each week I had to read a different play before the lecture - or rather, a viewing of a Hollywood adaptation. Only after having made the respective assignments on the dfferences between text and film were we given more info on how both media compared and contrasted in a tutorial later the same week. This set-up worked well.

Maybe you could tell us your findings as to the Hobbit book versus the animated film version?
