Summary: Pippin's desperate search for Merry in Minas Tirith, and what happened after, as seen by Pippin.


Reviewed by: Rabidsamfan -- Score: 3

This is a brilliant retelling of the passages in the book where Pippin searches for Merry and Merry's healing by Aragorn. Without losing anything which Tolkien gave to us, the story adds Pippin's inner thoughts in a way which feel right, as well as details of what happened at the Houses of Healing. I quite enjoyed it.

Reviewed by: Marigold -- Score: 2

I love the imperativeness of this story, and the hobbityness. Merry and Pippin are very well characterised here. Well done, and an entertaining read.

A sweet retelling of Pippin's search for Merry, and its aftermath, after the battle on the Pelennor. Very true to canon!

Reviewed by: Llinos -- Score: 1

The author conveys a very real imperativeness in her descriptions of Pippin’s search for Merry. A good gap-filler.
