Well, I'm not sure that I am [In reply to] Can't Post

Or to simply play devils advocate here, I think that one can say that the events of the Hobbit do take place in the same universe as Lotr. I don't find it that out of place. Sure, it is in the wild North of ME so things are often a bit different than those events described later in Lotr. It is possible that a pack of wild, later 3rd age Wrags could have killed Gandalf the Grey, the Wizards were of man form and could be slain after all. Some of the really silly things said might just be put down to a cantankerous Narrator telling the child to some kids. I can't think of any events in the Hobbit which really go against the grain of what happens later, I think it all fits together rather nicely Smile
