Is it just me, or does everyone else hate books with movie-actor's faces on them?

The first time I read Fight Club it had Brad Pitt on it, and the whole time I was imagining Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden and it really couldn't get it out of my head. I want to imagine and read the characters the authors wrote, not the actors portraying them.

Plus it looks cheap and "Hey, I liked the movie so much that I bought the book."

ModernPrimitive01: I just wanted to drop by and say I'm a huge Tolkien nerd and I'm scared Jackson will ruin the Hobbit like he ruined the ending to LOTR (no uprising in the Shire? you leave that out really? the point was England couldn't stay unaffected by WWII. It's kind of important to the story)


Dude... You're wrong in that you're reading WAAYYY too much into it.

"I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history, true or feigned, with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of the reader. I think that many confuse 'applicability' with 'allegory'; but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author." - JRR Tolkien

The Lord of the Rings is not an allegory for World War II or Catholicism or your burnt oatmeal or whatever else people claim. It's a story in and of itself.

My copy.

If that was at all legible, you'd see I've owned this for 34 years. Ouch.

Hunt them down. Do not stop until they are found. You do not know pain, you do not know fear. You will taste man-flesh.

magneticmushroom: My Hobbit paperback is missing and my LotR books are starting to look pretty ratty. I might have to grab this new printing for X-Mas as it looks a lot better than my early 90's ones with the paintings of "Obese Jew-Fro Bilbo", "Surprise Buttsecks Legolas", and "Math Teacher Aragorn."

Even though it means going full nerd, I have to point out that Barad-Dur wasn't in The Hobbit.
