It seems to me the question then becomes would the forces of Isengard, Rohan, and Gondor be equal, to or superior to, the ancient armies of Gil-Galad and Elendil. It's my impression, and it's only an...

Sorry, I seem to have gotten us off of Chapter 7. But I didn't say that Middle Earth should be made "blissful". I said that the Valar's "...[summoning] the Quendi to Valinor, there to be gathered at...

I think perhaps the marring of Aman is in the Valar themselves. It seems to me that they reached a perceived perfection and crouched there. When the Children of Ilúvatar awoke did the Valar try to...

It's true he didn't listen to them directly but he did listen to them when they came in a round-about way through his own people. He wasn't proof against the lies, he just didn't like or trust...

At the moment it's when the three companions are about to enter Fangorn forest. Gimli is very troubled and nervous about it. Legolas speaks of the forest's age and says something like, "I could have...

You know, I just had a flash memory of the galaxy in "Men in Black". I suppose the Silmarils could have an appearance something like that, small in appearance but when looked into encompassing a lot...

I'm reading the Noble Dead series by Barb & J.C. Hendee. I've read the first three and enjoyed them. The fourth is out in paperback but I've not been able to get it yet. And I'm not sure the Keeper...

I meant to ask in my last post but forgot: does anyone have a real idea of the size of the Silmarils? I originally thought they were something along the size of a palantír because of the references...

This, and some things in subsequent chapters, made me think of Thorin Oakenshield. There seems to be a reoccurring warning in the tales about the danger and harm that can come from an inappropriate...

I always find Gandalf's shout to the hobbits when the wolves attack on the hilltop to be funny. I can hardly say, "Fling fuel on the fire" when I'm *not* under attack.

Aragorn had spent a bit of time with Gandalf hunting for Gollum and watching the borders of the Shire. So he would know of Gandalf's suspicions and probably learned that Gandalf had confirmed them...

Believe it or not but I think my favorite scene, or at least my favorite view, was seeing the Argonath. That was just awesome.

I don't know. Anguirel may have a point. After all, why did Sam attend a secret meeting of VIPs in Rivendell to which he wasn't invited? Elrond assumes he knows the reason but it could just as easily...

My apologies. I did not read far enough or closely enough in the article you linked to before my last post. The creation of the stars are given there.
