|Tolkien uses 'if' as I remember correctly and this word is really important. |

|This is the second time I am reading this and was going to review at the end but I just wanted to pick up on something.|
"As financially possessive as he is rumored to be, Thranduil is NOT the greedy grasping miser some portray. "
Now I don't remember the Hobbit TOO well, but I thought Thranduil was "fond" of jewels? When has that become finaccially possesive? I like jewellery, a lot - but I will bop someone on the head if they call me stingy/miserly.
I think Thranduil would too. :)
I'm sure he has a soft spot for gems and things, but he is no stranger to charity. And I would not blame him for being something of a tightwad, but that certainly doesn't make him a Scrooge, as some seem to conclude.
I agree; being fond of jewels doesn't make one a dog-in-the-manger. :)
