Spoilers galore in Hobbit movie tie-in books

An Unexpected Journey: The World of Hobbits

Ethan Gilsdorf from Wired reviews several of the tie-in books for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

I recently got my hands on the five movie tie-in books (published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the U.S. publisher of all of Tolkien’s works). The titles are The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: Official Movie Guide and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: Visual Companion (these two are for adults, mostly); and The Movie Storybook, The World of Hobbits, and Activity Book (for kids, mostly; their titles are also preceded by the unwieldy “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”).

All are full-color, super glossy, and chock with images from Peter Jackson’s first film (and sometimes, a little bit beyond the first film), and all five include some minor insights, sneak previews and/or spoilers, depending on your point of view.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicles

    I have to agree, we received the same books from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and they do indeed have a ton of spoilers. The Hobbit Official Movie Guide by Brian Sibley is especially chock full of spoilers, the more children oriented The Hobbit Movie Story Book was pretty clear, if its correct as printed, where An Unexpected Journey will end and the next film pick up,which I did not know because up until this point I was staying away from spoilers.
