The Two Towers: Part Two

Well, as promised, it’s been a day and I’ve read a little bit. 🙂 Not as much as I would’ve liked, but I’ve been busy doing lights for a play at my school and rehearsals have been going from right after school until 7:00-8:00 at night. And by then I”m tired and crabby and I don’t want to read or do anything. So I only read half a chapter. But I did find a Two Towers book that stands by itself so I don’t have to lug around my whole trilogy! So the pages will be different then part one. Just ignore that. Anyway, let’s get started!

Pages read: 33-46

Pages left: 352

Chapter read: The last half of ‘Riders of Rohan’ the first part of ‘The Uruk-hai’

Books Left: The Hobbit

The Fellowship of the Ring

The Two Towers

The Return of the King

Favorite Quote: It may have been that the dancing shadows tricked their eyes, but certainly to each of the companions the boughs appeared to be bending this way and that so as to come above the flames, while the other branches were stooping down; the brown leaves now stood out stiff, and rubbed together like many cold cracked hands taking comfort in the warmth.

Why I liked it: It was a very pretty and vivid description. I always loved how Tolkien added a new life to the trees, and gave them almost a personality of their own. It’s a very cool concept.

Elvish:

… I reviewed?

Ok, truthfully, this is just a really bad time for me to be doing anything outside of homework and the play, but I’ll study this weekend and I’ll be sure to post more Elvish ASAP.
