My Brain was Hijacked by Lord of the Rings

So my Hobbit journey is complete, Bilbo is now safe at home wearing a lavish waistcoat, trunks of gold and silver hidden away.

The years have rolled past and I’ve begun the journey of The Lord of the Rings.

As I read the beginning, where Gandalf arrives, I could hear the opening music from the film, and my minds eye kept seeing those fireworks he set off for the children, despite the fact that it did not happen in the book.

My mind also tried to insert the part where Merry and Pippin set off the dragon, despite the fact that it did not happen in the book either.

I do wonder how much of the film is going to insert itself into my brain and overwrite the written version.

I hope not much more otherwise I’ll have to wait a few more years until the films have faded from memory.
