‘Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.’

Reader: The Silmarillion. Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age

Reader deep thought: The wrap-up! The end of the First Age saw the beginning of the Elven exodus, the Second marked the Downfall of Númenór. And here unveiled are the aftermath the Downfall, interwoven with the tale of how and why Sauron kept it up in Middle-earth after Morgoth’s done for, geology shakeup, and cliff-notes for the Third Age galore.

The Powers seemed to have swung too much the other way from interactive upbringing though, because what use are messages if the receiver can’t understand them? Still, no wonder the Atani felt such camaraderie with the Moriquendi.

  • Gandalf regaled the denizens of the house with the quest, and his own adventure – which Bilbo had not been privy to. More tales were told, but of course despite being in a premium seat, Bilbo nodded his way through it.

The Hobbit Book CoverSummary Points

  • The Eagles were truly wonderful to have on one’s side in a pinch, and they always delivered as promised.

Reader: The Hobbit. Chapter 4 “Over Hill And Under Hill”

The Hobbit Book CoverSummary Points

  • After Rivendell, the journey across the Misties to get to the Wilderland on the side was a difficult itinerary to handle unless one has a deeply experienced guide in tow. It was full of winding twists and and deceptive pathways.
