Great insights into the characters from this chapter, and wonderful illustrations of some appropriate NZ geography.

Gandalf's comforting (ha!) words at the end of the chapter are priceless. This is the Gandalf I love most, lightheartedly informing everyone that their chances of survival are awfully slim, but to carry on anyway.

About this blog

  • Actor Richard Armitage has been cast as Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit Movies. This blog aims to explore the stories about Tolkien's dwarves and any other material that may be related to The Hobbit. I have been a long time follower of Richard Armitage's work and have also developed a great love and appreciation of Tolkien's writings. I was captivated by Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies and will wait with great anticipation to see how he can bring "The Hobbit" to life for audiences.
