Dreamflower's Dribs and Drabs  by Dreamflower 3 Review(s)

//Mama told him those stories, but when she told them they sounded like stories. When Gaffer Sam told them, they sounded just like things that happened. //

Ah, a very astute child!

Author Reply: He is quite astute! But listening to stories told by those who were there, and those told by those who've just heard about it is quite a different experience!

I love the distinction made between Rose and Sam's telling of the great Quest. That's just how it would have been. I did a little experiment some years ago and read part of Two Towers in the first person, as Frodo would have originally written it.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Yes, Sam was there. It *would* make a difference!

How lucky he was to be able to visit Bag End and stay for a good deal of time each visit. Love the difference between when his mother told the stories and when his grandpa did--and of course, for Sam, they were what happened!

And sad there must be such gaps betwixt and between. I'd certainly love being there with Elfstan!

Author Reply: Yes, quite a difference between being there and just having heard about it!

Well, the Westmarch was a goodly distance away-- much further than Buckland, for example! But, of course, it at least meant the visits were long ones!
