Synopsis

The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug - Visual Companion by Jude Fisher

The second epic instalment of Peter Jackson's trilogy The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will see The Company of Thorin Oakenshield encounter even greater perils in their quest to claim their long-forgotten gold. After setting out from the safety of Bag End, Bilbo Baggins has journeyed through Middle-earth with his fourteen companions, fighting through fire, Wargs, Goblins and even escaping the creature known simply as Gollum. Introduced by Richard Armitage, who plays Thorin Oakenshield, and with over 100 rich illustrations, the Visual Companion is the perfect guide to the Company's passage to Erebor and the Dragon that awaits them...

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.
