Hall of Fire concludes our Hobbit reading this weekend!

January 20, 2012 at 3:53 am by Demosthenes  - 

“It was on May the First that the two came back at last to the brink of the valley in Rivendell…”

At Hall of Fire, we’ve reached the end of our chapter-by-chapter read-through of the Hobbit. This weekend we’ll discuss the final chapter, touching on the return journey, the interlude in Rivendell, the final division of the troll hoard and the domestic chaos that Bilbo returns to.

But we’ll also be asking ourselves some wider questions. How has Bilbo changed? Has he matured? Might he have stayed in Rivendell? What does it mean that he returns to Bag End? And how does Bilbo’s fate compare with that of the dwarves, and especially The Master?

Join us on this Saturday, January 21, at 5pm EST when we’ll be examining all this and more as we wrap up our Hobbit read in Hall of Fire!
