Now that you’ve read to page 200, you know what really happened at Long Lake, and what Long Lake really looks like. Quote passages from the book that describe Long Lake, and tell what events really happened there and what kinds of characters Bilbo and the dwarves encountered there.

  1. One of the quotes that was used to explain Lonely Lake was… “At the sounthern end the doubled waters poured out again over high waterfalls and ran away hurriedly to unknown lands. In the still evening air the noise of the falls could be heard like a distant roar.” I love this quote its uniquely worded… I thought that Lone Lake was going to be a dreadful place, where unknowns happen… but it was far from it. There were people there called wood elves that gave the dwarves food and water, they were pamperd in the kindliest ways. They had a town and houses were built on the rim of the lake. I thought for sure that there was going to be another fearful adeventure lurking them…(:

  2. well the book tells us that the lake shores are so far apart that they had no clue how to tell the difference between the northern and the southern shores.

    and i thought that there he would find smaug but no i did think they were going to have some trouble and that i was right because they cant tell if they are going south or north.

  3. well i know now that is has the forest-river rushing into long lake, it gad a wide mouth with stoney cliffside gates on both sides its is bigger than bilbo thought there was also a water fall

  4. Some quotes about the Long Lake were:

    “It was so wide that the opposite shores looked s
    mall and far, but it was so long that its northerly end, which pointed toward the Mountain, could not be seen at all.”

    “At the sounthern end the doubled waters puored out again over high waterfalls and ran away hurriedly to unknown lands. In the still evening air the noise of the falls could be heard like a distant roar.”

    Some of the creatures that the dwarves ran into while at the Long Lake were:

    *The Wood-elves, and their king, who was guarding the river.

    Comparing and contrasting my foreshadowing:

    I thought that it would be a place where evil, fears, and nightmares exist. And it is not that. I thought that it was a large, deserted place, however, it is small, and there are elves there.

  5. “Bilbo had never imagined that any water that was not the sea could look so big.. It was so wide that the opposite shores looked small and far, but it was so long that its northerly end which pointed twards the mountain could not be seen at all.”
    The dwarves and Bilbo Baggins encountered wood land elves when they arrived at Long Lake, and saw some men also.
    I was wrong about the city being in the middle of the lake. Instead, the city is along the edge of the lake, and kind of runs down into the water. I said Bilbo wouldn’t be the hero this time, but I haven’t found that out yet.

  6. long lake is a city built on the surface of a lake. there was tonz of houses and towns people…infact these towns people are wood elves….thorin and everyone was given horses,ponies, and boats when they arrived

    i didnt know what to expect knowing how weird and starange this book is…i just thought it would be a normal lake with a bunch of mystical creatures and such in that catergory

  7. Bilbo have never imagined that any water that was not a sea could look so big.it was so wide that the opposite sides looked small and far, but it was so far that the northerly shore end, wiched pointed towards the mountains, could not be seenat all. they encountered men there.
    i was right that they would have another adventure there. also the lake was big.

  8. Long Lake is a town that is built on the surface of a lake. There were many great houses and a great hall that made many lights. The people who lived it the town of Long Lake were elves, wood elves to be exact. Thorin and his company was given boats and horses and ponies.

  9. In the real Lake-town there is a Master who rules. He has a great hall that was filled with lights and voices. Long Lake was so wide that the opposite shores looked small and far, but it was so long that its northerly end, which pointed towards the Mountain, could not be ssen at all. At the southern end the doubled waters poured out agin from the high waterfalls and ran away hurriedly to unknown lands.
    My prediction of Long Lake was different from the real Long Lake by:
    1.There are still poeple living there, they were not chased of by giants.
    2. All there buildings are still standing and not rubble.
    My Long Lake is the same as the real Long Lake by:
    1.Both have or had live living there.
    2. Both have or had buildings standing.

  10. Bilbo could never have imagined a water that wasn’t a sea could look so big.Long Lake was wide that opposite shores look small and far.I did’nt imagine it a big lake because on the map it did’nt look very big.I did’nt think there was going to be a city either.

  11. “There it had a wide mouth with stony clifflike gates at either side whose feet were piled with shingles.”
    “It was so wide that the opposite shores looked small and far, but it was so long that its northerly end, which pointed towards the Mountain, could not be seen at all.”
    “Not far from the mouth of the Forest River was the strange town he heard the elves speak of in the king’s cellars. It was not built on the shore, though there were a few huts and buildings there, but right out on the surface of the lake, protected from the swirl of the entering river by a promontory of rock which formed a calm bay.”
    When Bilbo had gotten everyone out of the barrels Thorin, Bilbo, Fili, and Kili went to the bridge and demanded to go to the master of the town. When they got their Thorin said that he is the lost king’s grandson and the people welcomed him and his party in, to join the feast.
    Compare: My prediction and the real account are similar because the area around the lake is relatively flat.
    Contrast: My prediction is different from the real account because I said that the town was on an island, and I also said the Gandalf would meet them there.

  12. 1. “Bilbo had never imagined that any water that was not the sea could look so big.”
    2. “It was so wide that the opposite shores looked small and far, but it was so long that its northerly end, which pointed towards the Mountain, could not been seen at all.”
    3. “At the southern end the doubled waters poured out again over high waterfalls and ran away hurriedly to unknown lands.”
    A creature that they encountered with there were wood-elves.
    My preiction about Long Lake was that Bilbo wouldn’t like it, and in the book he dosen’t so that prediction was correct.
    One of my predictions that was wrong about Long Lake is I said it was once a happy place then someone ruined it but, it seems that book make it look like it was never a happy place.

  13. “Biblo had never imagined that any water that was not the sea could look so big”.

    Long Lake was different than what I expected. The lake was so long that it appeared endless. And there were a LOT of mountains and there was a gateway and all that funky stuff. And the residents of Long Lake thought there was a dragon living close by.

  14. “Bilbo had never imagined that any water that was not the see could look so big.”
    “It was so wide that the oppisite shores looked so wide and small, but it was so long that its northerly end, which pointed towards the Mountain, could not be seen at all.”

    I thought Long Lake would be a happy place but it was not a happy place nor an island but there was a city.

  15. “Bilbo had never imagined that any water that was not the see could look so big.”
    “It was so wide that the oppisite shores looked so wide and small, but it was so long that its northerly end, which pointed towards the Mountain, could not be seen at all.”
    In journal #17 I said that the hobbit and dwarves would meet a creature or person which they did. What I didn’t think would happen is that Long Lake would be so big… I expected it to be small.

  16. A large house ws given up to Thorin and his company; boats and rowers were put at their service; and crowds sat down outside and sang songs all day, or cheered if any dwarf showed so much as his nose.
    Not far from theh mouth fo teh forest river was a strange town, it was not built on the shore, but right out on the surface of the lake.
    At the southern end the doubled waters poured out again over hogh waterfalls and ran hurriedly to unknown lands.

    Compare: My prediction was alike to what really was there because it was a happy looking place.

    Contrast: My prediction was wrong because it isn’t creppy inside. Also they haven’t encountered many different creatures they the have never seen or heard before.

  17. Bilbo could never have imagined that a water that was not an sea could look so big,it was so wide that the opposite shores looked small and far but it was so long that its northerly end could not be seen at all, the running river came into the lake from Dale, it was filled with deep waters which must have must been a rocky valley, in the Southern end there were waterfalls. Close to the forest river there was a town that was not built on the shore, but right on the surface of the lake.
    Bilbo and the dwarves were pampered and fed and recovered from the long trip there also.
    I was right about it being small, but I was wrong about it being deserted.

  18. The book says that the shores of Long Lake are very far apart and it was so long you could not see the northern shore from the southern. And also there was a strange town on Long Lake.

    I didnt know what to expect when I first had heard about Long Lake I knew that it was a lake of coarse but that is about all. I had just figured that they would encounter some more adeventure.

  19. It was so wide that opposite shores looked small and far, but it was so long that its northerly end could not be sen at all. Not far from the mouth of the Forest River was a strange town, it was not built on the shore, but right out on the surface of the lake.

    I thought that there would be an island with a city, but instead
    there was no island but there was still a city
