#FellowshipOfTolkien #LotRChapterADay

Faramir is such a great character. He is so similar to Aragorn and still different. I like his loyalty, his courage and his honesty. I like his sense of duty and his sense of his place in the world.
He could be a leader, but he knows his is the place of a servant of his people and his king. And this knowledge, l think, gives him his strength.
In a way, he is very much like Sam.

LeeRHarry And you gotta love David Wenham! #Aussienationaltreasure 😆 10h

I adore Samwise and rereading this part made me love him even more. He is so brave and incredibly loyal. 💕💕💕
I love going through this journey again!

JazzFeathers I'm loving this part so much! With Sam coming into his own and Faramir striding into the story, this part is truly an himn to loyalty and the strength that comes from the will to serve. 13h
eanderson @JazzFeathers I agree! It‘s one of my favorites. 💕 13h
JazzFeathers @eanderson Yes. One of my favourite too. 11h

#FellowshipOfTolkien

"It was Sam's first view of a battle of Men against Man, and he did not like it much. He was glad that he could not see the dead face. He wondered what the man's name was and where he came from; and if he was really evil at heart, or what lies or thrests had led him on the long march from his home; and if he would not really rather have stayed there in peace."

I wonder whether Tolkien thought the same in the trenches.

Cathythoughts Lovely quote ✨. Lovely thought your wondering 💔 now

Other books claimed most of my reading time this weekend, but I managed to read a couple chapters tonight. These chapters with Frodo and Sam are not my favorites, but I do really like Faramir and appreciate the journey. I‘m caught up to here and calling it a night.

JazzFeathers Oh, l'm loving this part even more than last time. I'm not sure l'm able to say why. It just seem to be so full of meaning. 14h
Daisey @LazyOwl Thanks! 6h
Daisey @JazzFeathers I‘m enjoying it, although I would not say any more than the last time. However, I don‘t enjoy it as much as the other sections. 6h

I found so many great images for these, I made 1 for each book!

And I put a catch-up week in-between to “hopefully” make it easier to keep everybody on track.

How‘s it going #FellowshipOfTolkien #LOTRChapterADay readers?

Finishing up The Two Towers? Close.

We‘ll be continuing on with Return of the King in about 2 weeks, on March 7th. So take your time, get caught up if you need to, or catch up on something else if you‘ve already finished.

llwheeler I am still going, though very behind. I'm sure I'll catch up by March 7th, thanks for the buffer 🙂 2d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @llwheeler Yes, you are welcome! 2d
Deifio They still haven't met Gollum yet! I sooo need to catch up! 2d
Daisey This sounds great! I managed to do some catching up and am pretty sure I will finish by the weekend, but I have plenty of other reading for a week in between. 1d
JazzFeathers Should finish Faramir's episode tonight. Not too far from the end now 😊 14h

So much darkness in this volume as our Fellowship is split and each part travels a terrifying road through bitter hardships and battles to get just where they need to be for the next installment.

To my #FellowshipOfTolkien group...I appreciated this one so much more after reading the Silmarillion and Histories, so many events are referenced from those stories, and knowing them really enriched my reading of the story this time.

Daisey I agree! I feel like this is a much deeper read for me after reading all of the other things we‘ve read recently. I better understand so many more references and see foreshadowing more clearly. 3d
BookwormAHN Agreed 💚 3d
JazzFeathers True, eh. Having read so many of Tolkien's other work and especially his draft, this read is giving so much more than all the previous ones. I see lots and lots of foreshadowing and interconnections and hidden meaning. I'm loving it. 3d

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey @eanderson @BookwormAHN @wordslinger42 @jazzfeathers. Since I finished first does that mean I make the new schedule? 😂 and if so, do you think everyone will be caught up by March 1 or 7th to start the next book? 2d
BookwormAHN That's fine with me and the 1st or 7th is good. I'm done as well 😸 2d
Daisey I‘m a few chapters behind, but I should be caught up by next weekend. 2d
JazzFeathers May l ask for the 7th, if that's ok with everyone? My working schedule is totally unpredictable at the moment. I'd prefer to have some space for maneuvering 😅 2d
