Book Reviews some of those young people, loving Jackson's film so much, will read essays criticizing it, perceive Tolkien devotees as killjoys, and decide not to read the novel. In effect, what the anti-Jackson authors are saying to the fans is, "Stop loving those films that you love so much, and start instead loving these books that I love so much." They are trying to catch flies with vinegar. It might be more efficacious to say to Jackson's fans (gritting one's teeth if necessary), "All right, you love these films. Now if you read these wonderful books, you might also love them as much or even more." I'll bet many of them would. Many already have.
