Ray Bradbury/The Hobbit
Favorite arthur is def. Bradbury... and favorite book i read not to long ago is the hobbit...o darnit baby's crying
I'm a huge Lord of the Rings nerd, the Hobbit was the first book I read and that was after I was obsessed with the movies.
Yea the movies were great...i heard that they might make the hobbit into a movie...there is a 1960s or 70s cartoon movie based on the hobbit and they also did the lord of the rings its amazing way better than the live action movies in my opinion...you can probably see them on youtube...
I read the Hobbit when I was a senior in high school and really enjoyed it. Of course I saw all the LOTR movies when they came out and enjoyed those as well but I never got around to reading the books. They are on the top of my list of books to read next simply because a couple of months ago I watched the 5 hours of bonus material that each of the Extended addition dvds have while sewing and there were a few parts of the books that they brought up that interested me a lot.
As for Bradbury- the only book of his I have ever read was obviously Fahrenheit 451. And while I think the concept of the book was great, I didn't really enjoy the writing so it wasn't a top favorite for me. I'm a critical reader though so it can be difficult to please me.
i havent read fahrenhiet 451 but my husband just told me that thats the degrees of heat it takes to burn a book and i thought that was a creative title...i dont really like reading novels...i have only read a few that my husband suggested cause he knows me so well...but i have read alot of bradbury short stories and loved them...there is a book called "the best of bradbury" its filled with a bunch of his short stories there is another book called "The Martians Chronicle" that are short stories that are all link together and its based on life on mars...you should try those PINKWEEDS and give bradbury another shot cause believe me i hate reading but he tends to keep my interested...
I'll put them on my book list (its very long so it may take a while before I get around to them).
on a slightly off-topic but still related note, did you know that the man who wrote the script to the 1970s movie The Hobbit, Peter Beagle, was never paid for the job? He's been tied up legal courts over this for years.
really...that sucks cause its a really good movie
I tried to watch the cartoon movies but I couldn't really get into them. My mom hated that I would always watch the Fellowship (that was the only one I had) and we only had one dvd player at the time so we'd always be fighting over it. Then for christmas she bought me the two towers, I put it in one night and my mom was like "Gollum? That sounds so familiar..." Turns out she read the Hobbit in high school and watched the cartoon movies but didnt really piece it all together until that night. Then she jumped all on the bandwagon.
