...or should it be left to the reader's imagination?

The film version of the Hobbit has already been agreed to be made. Ian McKellen has agreed to be in it, but Ian Holm was replaced in favour of 'someone younger'.

The film version of the Hobbit is definitely going to be made. Ian McKellen has agreed to be in it, but Ian Holm was replaced in favour of 'someone younger'.
I forgot what the dragon was called 'smaug''??? I read it ages ago but, the scenes with the dragon would take a bit of special effects

The nonexistent originality in the plot maybe...

It hasn't been agreed yet whether it's going to be an actual film or a 'made-for-TV' production.

Yes, it may be a simple theme but the narrative is immense as it immerses the reader into the story....really there is a lot more going on than just that theme though

They should make it for cinema - lord of the Rings was perfect for it

The Hobbit would probably be more suited to telelvision. It's not as 'active' as LoTR is, and it's a lot lighter.

Well, that's your opinion, I respect it but I'm not agree at all.
I've read it and it's boring, it's childish literature.
But that's my opinion.

I do see what you mean but, it is more of a kiddie book and so you could draw on the Harry Potter parallel

Yes, there is that. It's a shame that Ian Holm isn't returning as Bilbo - he played it well in LoTR.
