Ooooh, y’know, I can’t…remember details from the films all that well WHOOPS that’s a bit condemning, right? So I’m gonna do the book.
1. Female characters, obvs
2. I would’ve liked a bit more of Bilbo’s inner thought process? I know we get some, but I just felt a bit more removed from him than I do from many protagonists, I would’ve liked to hear his reasoning and how he gradually grew/changed from “NO THANK YOU IT’S TEA TIME” to “RIGHT THAT’S IT I HAVE SAVED YOUR ASS 50 TIMES THORIN THIS ARKENSTONE IS MY DAMN FEE”
3. Riddles in the Dark should be three times as long it was amazing
4. More dialogue and characterisation of all the dwarves
5. …haha before the movies I absolutely would’ve said “Legolas cameo in the Mirkwood scenes!!” but now I’m scared that he wouldn’t go away again so actually I’m fine
