LMB Book Club: The Hobbit, Chapter 2 – Roast Mutton

The Lonely Mountain Band Book Club met last night at the Green Dragon Inn, where we enjoyed (using the term loosely) some Mint ‘n’ Mutton Muffins (that term may need to be used loosely too) in honor of chapter two of the book – Roast Mutton!

Sam (Renamedsa pending, er, rename), Deithrian, Fastjarfi, Gaiagil, Byrdie, Fuinador, and Lennidhren had a great discussion of this chapter, in which adventure shows its scary – but still funny – side and Bilbo, scouting out three very alarming trolls, first tries his hand at a bit of burglary. We talked of magic, landscape, dwarves vs. hobbits, and much more.

At the end we had a new treat, as Gaiagil organized us into a band to try our hands at playing “Troll Sat Alone” – many thanks to Keptwise for providing us with a link to abc files and lyrics for it! It was Lennidhren’s first time playing in a band like so (and I think the same was true for others in our group…) and so very exciting! We hope to reconvene the book club group and play the song for Ales and Tales tonight, in fact. *tweetles on the clarinet she borrowed from Gaiagil…*

We finished with readalouds; Gaiagil read a passage from Bilbo’s encounter with the trolls, I read the part where he arrives at the Green Dragon Inn without his money, walking stick, or hat; and Sam read the ending passage with Gandalf being, as Pippin would put it years later, “close.” Sam does great voices; we should’ve had him read the trolls too… 😉
