When I was a child I read the book and it instantly became my favorite novel of all time, it remains this way till today. However this movie does not do the book justice in the least, drifting far from the original story line this movie is a catastrophe. All I can say is I now sympathize with my friend who said she was disappointed after seeing The Lord of The Ring: The Fellowship of the Ring.
