Great metaphor. [In reply to] Can't Post

Though I'd be even more worried about the emotional jumbo-sized grand pianos...

Have to agree, though. The ending of TABA is going to be hard to stomach, especially since I'm guessing PJ will ratchet up the drama and heartbreak as much as possible. There is no happy ending here, not with *this* version of The Hobbit, where Thorin's story is (yes, I know it's a bit sacrilegious to say this) just as important as Bilbo's. There are too many characters who we're going to care deeply about who are going to either end up dead or griefstricken. I can't believe we're going to hate Thorin (as Richard Armitage suggests) enough to make the losses any easier to take.
