I was just thinking that I don’t really know what to write because my opinions are much the same as they were for the first book. One thing I had forgotten is how minor women are in the books. By the end of this book I think Galadriel is the only one who has spoken more than a sentence and she was actually in the first book. The most major female character in this book is Shelob, quite the contrast. I love his detail and I think that is part of what makes it hard to look at the books separately because they are all so cohesive even when you switch from the rest of the fellowship to Frodo and Sam you don’t feel jolted back and forth. Anyway onto the third.
Edit: Almost every other book has the cover that I own but honestly I own the movie covers of these which I hate so here is something pretty for you.
