The Hobbit eBook ó õ First published over 50 years ago JRR Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' has become one of the best loved books of all time Now Tolkien's fantasy classic has been adapted into a fully painted graphic novel'The Hobbit' is the story of Bilbo Bagginsa uiet and contented hobbit whose life is turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and thirteenD dragon SmaugIllustrated in full colour throughout and accompanied by the carefully abridged text of the original novel this handsome authorised edition will introduce new generations to a magical masterpiece – and be treasured by Hobbit fans of all ages everywhere I picked this up on a Tolkien high interested in reading the graphic adaptation of the beloved novel it was based on It had been a while since I read The Hobbit and had uite forgotten a few things so I figured it was time to dive inThe biggest problem with this graphic novel is the amount of words per page Comics almost never have multiple text boxes spread across a page let alone a full novel's worth Some pages were littered with these boxes much to my annoyance And some of these were ridiculously long I don't think this would have bothered me as much if it were Tolkien's words but Dixon lacks the charm Tolkien hadOn the other hand the illustrations are beautiful Water colored works of art grace the reader's eyes always magnificent to look at Indeed David Wenzel did an amazing job of drawing the scenes and crafting the characters Gandalf is perfect as are the Dwarves and Bilbo Smaug is awesome when are dragons not? The Elves weren't how I imagined them but still fit the overall stylistic themes of the bookTaking these two together the graphic novel of The Hobbit in no way compares with Tolkien's masterpiece but it's definitely worth the read I wound up skipping large blocks of narration text letting the individual comic panes and character dialogue instead fill in the story It was nice going back to the beginning of the journey that inspires The Lord of the Rings and Charles Dixon's The Hobbit mostly met my expectations Recommended for those interested in Tolkien especially younger readers but I would first recommend reading the novel before this one

The HobbitLife is turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves on their uest to reclaim the dwarves' stolen treasure It is a journey fraught with danger – and in the end it is Bilbo alone who must face the guardian of this treasure the most dreade 25 okay the art in this is beautiful and very detailed itself deserves 5 stars for sureBut this just couldn't do the original story justice I get that you can't put all of the original text in a graphic novel but everything felt soooo rushed and I don't think I would get it all if I haven't read the Hobbit
