Teaser Tuesday - The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien (Part 2)

Like I guessed last week, I'm still reading The Hobbit (I'm savouring every single page). So, I don't know if it's "cheating" but my teaser this week is going to be from The Hobbit too! So, my teaser is:

"Then he asked his second:
Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters, 
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters." 
(page 88)

I suppose all you Tolkien fans will remember the answer. Personally, the first time I saw this was in a Literature textbook in Secondary School. Back then, I just loved the riddle, but I didn't know where it came from. Tolkien FTW!

Teaser Tuesdays is a meme brought to you by MizB of ShouldBeReading. Just share your two-sentence teaser and the name of the book you're reading(:

So, what's your teaser?


  1. Are you reading this again to prepare for the movie? Yes, Tolkien is priceless. Continue to savor it. Here's Mine

  2. I LOVE The Hobbit! Can't wait for the movie! Here's ours: http://refractedlightreviews.com/?p=11615

    1. I'm ashamed to say, I haven't read it before. :/


  4. Love the hobbit and will probably re-read before the movie comes out haha.

  5. Oh, it's some time ago now that I read The Hobbit. I loved it then and reread it several times (poor paperback ;) ), but I can't remember the answer to the riddle.
