    Much the same with me, and you're right about his books being far more bulkier than the movies, so not all is spoiled. The movies being as magnificent as they are, is what made me think, "Hold on, if they're this amazing, what about the books? Surely they're even better..." and so I ended up reading them after. Even now after seeing the movies countless times over, I'm still discovering new things in connection to the books, or what hasn't been included, what has, etc. The Hobbit trilogy is no different, but in this case they've actually included new material from appendices that the vast majority of people have not read, so in a sense it's new for everyone, regardless of whether you've read The Hobbit or not.

    Heh, glad you don't want to either xP. The first really was amazing though, it has to be said. Tolkien's and Peter Jackson's magic all the way <3.

    I don't understand why some people say they liked LOTR but hated The Hobbit

    Maybe... But that wouldn't make sense either because everyone liked Frodo
