One thing that strikes me is the major shift that occurs during this chapter. It begins with "Gollum in front and the hobbits now side by side," but finishes with Sam running after him having...

I had heard that recording of Tolkien before. It really is interesting to hear him speak it. I wish I could have heard that Finnish choir. He does speak rather fast, but it make it more...

I agree, Sharkû. All the igneous activity, landslides, and whatever else might logically have been going on in the area would make the landscape almost constantly change. Why spend time constantly...

That's all similar to what I was thinking about the hobbits. There's also the fact that after Morgoth was defeated, everyone thought that the great evil was mostly disposed of. Then a new power...

There also weren't many actual records of hobbits because most people just thought of them as a fairy tale. If you recall, the Gondorians were surprised to see a halfling in person. They thought...
