every bit as good as 'rings' Can't Post

There has been weeks of debate now about whether the hobbit is as good as its illustrious predesessor,some saying yes others saying no.I love it and think in time it will be seen as an equal....BUT,what I also think is that when PJ made the rings trilogy the stars did actually align for him and the whole project in general,much the same as when a band or artist record a difinitive album,sure,they can write stuff just as good in the future but it won't be viewed as such by fans because of the magic etc that surrounded the earlier release isn't quite the same for obvious reasons.I think in fact that he has pulled off a minor miracle in creating something that in my view is equal to what came before and he should be applauded for that.I would be interested to know what other people think.Smile

Arrow....black arrow,I have saved you to the last.you have never failed me and always I have recovered you.I had you from my father and he from old.if ever you came from the forges of the true king under the mountain,go now and speed well
