Concerning Book 1 Chapter 2 of The Fellowship of the Ring, “The Shadow of the Past”...

On this episode of the Tolkien Road, we continue our discussion of The Lord of the Rings with Chapter 2 of Fellowship, "The Shadow of the Past." While consisting mostly in dialogue, I consider this to be one of the prime examples of why I love Tolkien’s style so much. Along the way we discuss our love of Sam Gamgee and how anyone could possibly not love him, as well as engage in a brief though heated discussion of the literary merits of The Hunger Games. I hope you enjoy our conversation.

Please leave us a rating and feedback on iTunes. We’d love to know what you think of The Tolkien Road.
