Thanks for starting this, and in response to your response =)

Agreed on all your points above... and in response to your post here:

Same here. I don't even bother trying to read fast because I know if I do, I'll miss stuff. I've never been diagnosed as ADD, but my mind wanders a ridiculous amount and if there's noise of stuff going on around me, I can't focus on reading. Thus is why I get peeved with doctor's/dentists/other places who insist on having a TV or radio going constantly in the waiting room.Unsure Seriously, if I have to sit and wait somewhere for a long time, I'd rather make progress on a book I enjoy than be forced to watch soap operas or hear a never ending loop of medical factoids.Crazy

I guess I'm too used to reading fast. Tolkien has made me pause and try to slow down. I don't always succeed but I try.

ADD though is always a self-diagnose around these partsTongue... back in the day when I was a tot. I think I have the tendency to be distracted way too easily. But oh well. Things are supposed to be improved but I doubt ADD is treated as anything more than a newfangled "foreigner" concept that only the well-heeled would even acknowledge.

I doubt Thingol wanted to give he daughter to anyone, but short of a dwarf or orc, a lowly Man was probably one of the least desirable options.


Re Tauriel... yeah, agreed. It's just in the general sense of the concept of the foster-child plus harbinger of change. Tauriel's arc can never be as tragic as Turin's imo. Too dark and too complicating to the TH story arc as PJ and crew intended.

And oops! I thought the silm-readalong was further along so I plunged on and went all the way to chappie 23 before I realised I've overshot the scheduleTongue

Fan of both books and movies; I am a lurker by nature though it seems I have severely misnamed myself... for the moment.

Laugh Thrall Wars!: What business do Elves, Dwarves or Men(?) have with drooling thralls, yea, with smartphones in tow, unto the slopes of Erebor? ... oh, yes, the Hobbit's lingering in some shadows, ever ready to swoop to the hairy rescue. Take cover if you dare!. (A writing triangle with Avandel and Kerewyn)
