Anyone who read this chapter in one sitting I give unto thee the status of a god amongst men. That is not to say that I hate the information dumps that Tolkien gives for a straight fifty or so pages. No, I am thoroughly enjoying it. I got teary-eyed a few times, too. What can I say, I'm extremley sentimental when the names of old are mentioned I am only half way through it because, well, who can read that, as I say, in one sitting? I have reached the point where Gandalf is going to recount his entire journey and dealings with Saruman. One question, though it may sound foolish: Should I read it all in Gandalf's voice since it's all said by him? I figured that's what one should do... since I've never came across quotes inside quotes like that. At the start of the chapter when Gloin is retelling what the Mordor messenger said I read it in Gloin's voice, not the messenger's. Correct? Anyway, apart from that, I'd like to know what people thought of that chapter.
