Whiz and Bang. One will find both in the well-crafted and entertaining “Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Loses Tone of Book.” by “Rebecca Cusey. It’s a sophisticated celebration of words from The Cuse, but unfortunately R. C. doesn’t allow her fans to become fully immersed in Hobbit-land.

Rebecca Cusey has a way with words. The refined gentleman of prose and also Johnny and Jane from the block can enjoy Tone of Book, but there is something missing once again from Cusey’s work. It’s certainly not the visuals, which are all-star quality—so what it is it?

Tone of Book has a way of connecting with the audience. Cusey produces an original opening geared toward young Hobbit fans, and her concern for potential nerddom is both moving and inspring. Cusey is a modern craftswoman dedicated the the cause.

Time is the major downfall of Tone of Book. Cusey begins strong but struggles to remove herself from the the length of the sequel. That’s not to say the she doesn’t make intriguing points on desperation and elf-love, however she never finds a way to break through basic observations to deliver a truly deep and thought-provoking critique.

Rebecca Cusey’s Tone of Book is fine piece of writing. If she can manage to get Jack-Handey-like with analysis, well, then the sky is the limit.
