An Ogre & a Hobbit
Finally did what I wanted do for sometime. Namely watch Shrek & buy "The Hobbit". I had watched Shrek 2 & wanted to find the first one, but has been unlucky until last Friday. Finally it came to my favorite DVD shop in a collection including Toy Story Series. It was as expected. Which is pretty damn good.
And then on Saturday I found The Hobbit which has been eluding me since I finished reading the LOTR trilogy. I was looking for Judas Unchanged by Peter F Hamilton ( Having read the first one of the commonwealth series Pandora’s Star ) but instead found Hobbit. Still I’m reading it so I can’t say much about it other than it is written in quite a different style to LOTR. Hobbit was initially intended for children & it follows a story telling theme. LOTR was written more in line with conventional methods while Hobbit tends to be funny quite often. It is proving to be an enjoyable read & I’m only halfway through. Can’t wait to go back home & finish it!
