The Hobbit

The Hobbit is a story of a hobbit who's life begins to change when he is asked to go on an adventure. The Hobbit is an old and well known book that has finally became a movie not to long ago and it came out on DVD not long after. Now many of  The Hobbit fans were disappointed in the movie and anyone who has read it can say that it does not follow the book. But what did you think? Did you enjoy The Hobbit or did you think it went way to far off from the book to really enjoy? Branching off of that do you get excited when your favorite books become movies?
