The dynamic of Mim and Turin is so funny. He reminds me of the cantankerous old man that acts like he hates everyone and everything, yet has a soft spot somewhere in his heart that he dares not show anyone. I'm not sure that the Men living on Amon Rudh is really advantageoous. Besides food and shelter, they've pretty much isolated themselves to a mountain top without purpose other than survival. If Turin's goal is survival, he could've gone back to Doriath with Beleg. So is his purpose to defeat Morgoth? If so, then he's not exactly in the right place for that either. I just don't understand what his motivations are at this point.Beleg's return to Turin is remarkable and shows his love for Turin. He's willing to stay with Turin even though he absolutely disagrees with his choices. I'm sure Beleg's friendship and loyalty will prove extremely valuable to Turin at some point. I'm not sure if it's just a hunch, but I fear that Beleg's life may be cut short because of one of Turin's choices. Not to be all negative about it, but after all, there is a horrible curse upon our protagonist.
Uh oh! I just read the title of Chapter 9: "The Death of Beleg." That's the last time I open my big mouth about death predictions. Maaan!
That SO totally bummed me out. Beleg was cool.
Almost like a precursor Legolas, except Beleg is cooler.
