The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: Official Movie Guide
Author: Brian Sibley
Genre: Movie guide, companion
Series: A companion to HAUJ that came out in December
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9.5
Type: Non-fiction about a fictional movie…?
Number of pages: 168
My overall opinion: There have been a few movie guides over the years that have disappointed me, but this wasn’t one of them. It was PACKED with hundreds of full-color photos on glossy pages, and filled in with plenty of text to explain them all. There were interesting facts to be learned about everything. Each dwarf got a full spread to himself…and then there were sections about weapons and makeup and locations. Wizards and hobbits and dwarves. Clothes and casting and high definition. And, of course, Gollum and goblins and wargs. And SO much more! This is a must-have companion for any HAUJ fan. Worth buying!
