I really appreciate this graphic novel because, first, I love the story of the Hobbit, the book and the movie. After, I find that this graphic novel respect the book very well, more than the movie. I can recommend this book for the people who don't have the time to read the book because this is a graphic novel, so it is faster to read. Finally, I will speak about the pictures: I am divided because one side if you have seen the movie it is very disappointing because it doesn't correspond at all to what they did in the movie - and it is very disturbing! But, on an other side, the pictures are great and sometimes the decor is really impressive and the pictures buried us into the world of Tolkien.
