The Hobbit, part two

Book: The Hobbit (purchase on Amazon)
“Dawn take you all, and be stone to you!”
This scene with the three trolls is one of my all time favorites in literature. I love the trolls arguing about how to cook the thirteen dwarves, and their dimwitted back and forth with the unseen Gandalf. It’s the first real scene where Gandalf reveals some of his power, keeping the murderous trolls occupied until the sun rises and smites the three.
I’ll be posting a rather lengthy post on the process of this piece on my blog come Friday, which should make me look like a real idiot.
Next month I’m looking to do something a lot more simple; these extensive pieces are sometimes pretty nasty to deal with.
