its amazing to get these streaming videos from the other side of the world. I am a fan of J.R.R. Tolkiens books and the world he created. I have also read nearly all of the secondary literature like the biographies and the works about Tolkiens linguistic background. The newest book I bought in Cambridge (England) was "Tolkien and the Great War" from John Garth. Very interesting about his emotional background when he was a young man.
The movies from Peter Jackson I like very much. But I allays fear that Hollywood interfere too much in the story. So as it happens in Peters work "The Lord of the Rings". I hope that this time "The Hobbit" will be nearer to the Book. If the films will tell more of the history of Middle Earth I will have no problems with that. Even when Peter and his team invent new plots around the theme. But it should go after the story Tolkien has written. I am looking forward and the tense is high when the movie will come to Germany in December.
