And they're off! Very pretty descriptions in this chapter, especially of the snow after the storm. I couldn't help but love this exchange about the sun. I was told Legolas had a sense of humor in the books that didn't make it into the movies. #fellowshipoftolkien #readalongs2020 #groupread

Although I enjoyed hearing about Tom again, hearing Gandalf threaten to roast Butterbur, Sam be chastised for sneaking into a secret council, and other happenings... this chapter was too long. So much “well how do we know ?is dangerous?" "Well let me tell you my experience" #fellowshipoftolkien #readalongs2020

A lot happened, or didn‘t, in these chapters. His father pushing him to get into the Salon, he didn‘t. Julie following him all over (do you thinkStone is right, that she didn‘t mind playing 2nd fiddle to his painting?) being disinherited. And always the name-dropping of other celebrities of the day. And how could anyone tell anything about a painting in a situation like the above Salon? #depthsofglory #readalongs2020 @Kdgordon88 @smilingshelves

smilingshelves I know they complained when their pictures were hung by the ceiling, but I didn't realize the ceiling was so tall. No wonder they complained! I felt so bad for Julie in this section. I think she minds a lot more than she lets on. On the other hand, her life could have been a lot worse if he didn't treat her as his wife and had abandoned her. So maybe she's grateful to have what she does. 2d
smilingshelves But to move all the time and always be a stranger, having to start over in a new neighborhood would be very hard. @Kdgordon88 2d

Lcsmcat @smilingshelves Yes! And in areas where you‘re an outsider unless your grandfather was born there. It must have been so difficult! 2d

I love all of the stories and legends told throughout these books. Very much an influence from Norse mythology, where it's not uncommon for characters to tell other myths and legends during a story. #fellowshipoftolkien #readalong #groupread #readalongs2020 #mythology #norsemythology

I'm a bit behind on the #fellowshipoftolkien #readalong right now. Just a chapter, though. There were quite a few delightful moments in this chapter, but this was one of the most satisfying! #readalongs2020 #groupread

Deifio I still think Fatty Bolger is a stupid name 😂 4d
Kenyazero @Deifio It is a stupid name! 4d

Suggested alternative version: And the hobbits considered trusting this dark stranger until he switched to referring to himself in the third person. #fellowshipoftolkien #groupread #readalong #readalongs2020

Blueberry 😆 6d
Deifio Yes, I found this very odd too! 6d
JazzFeathers 😂 @daifio But then you could say that Strider is only one of this man's personalities. 6d

This chapter did a great job of making everything and everyone feel threatening. #fellowshipoftolkien #fantasy #readalong #readalongs2020 #groupread

Deifio But it made Frodo and the gang look more suspicious, too. 6d
Kenyazero @Deifio fair point! Haha that point makes me think about the following chapter when Strider sniped about being sure Frodo had a perfectly honest reason for keeping his name secret and Frodo sniped that he was sure Strider had perfectly honest reasons for following them. 6d
Deifio @Kenyazero haha! 😁 See everyone is more suspicious when you won't tell them your name! And Frodo even has an undercover name, use it dummy! 6d
Kenyazero @Deifio right? They would have been so much less suspicious if they'd used the name Underhill right away. 6d
