The Hobbit Book Review: Ch. 3

Since the last time we checked in on poor Bilbo and his friends, they had just barely escape from being turned into supper by those gruesome trolls.  Now they continued on with their journey, with very little to eat, very little cheer and with fear that something terrible was around every corner they turned. 

Gandalf saw the toll that the trolls had taken on the poor dwarfs spirit.  He then set his sights toward Rivendell the last homely house, the home of Elrond and the elves.  The elves were merry

folk and love singing, dancing and food, above everything.  They welcomed Gandalf, Bilbo, and all the dwarfs with a feast.  There Bilbo and company stayed for fourteen days, but would have stayed longer if Gandalf hadn’t pushed them to press on.

Before they left, Elrond looked over their map and discovered moon runes on it.  These runes spoke of a secret entrance that Thorin himself knew nothing of.  This would bring new hope to their potential treasure hunting and with this they departed the last homely house.
