Gandalf the Grey


“Gandalf the Grey. That was my name.

(Now) I am Gandalf the White! I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide.”

  1. First read the books when I was in High School. I enjoyed them very much. My friend’s brother also read them but never read the final chapter. He loved the story so much that he didn’t want it to end. πŸ™‚
