I am also a huge fan of the movies, but reading the book is such a different experience that it changes your perception of the movie. I encourage any tolkien fan to READ THE BOOKS!
Tolkien manages to add a ton of detail and make it all contextually support the action without making the writing overly dense.
The movies do a pretty good job bringing a lot of the detail to life, but there are just some things that can't be expressed in a movie.
The adventures that Bilbo and the gang go through are very unique and are still unlike most modern adventure novels.
I highly recommend this to ages 10+.
