LOTR Chapter by Chapter: Three is Company

This is a continuation of a series where I look at The Lord of the Rings one chapter at a time, and also look at the corresponding parts of the Jackson, Bakshi, and Rankin/Bass films. Some of this will be written by me (J.W.) and some by Drew L. So with that introduction out of the way, here we go:

The Fellowship of the Ring Book 1, Chapter 3: Three is Company

Chapter synopsis:

To avoid his leaving the Shire from being widely known, Frodo sells Bag End to the Sackville-Bagginses and purchases a house in Buckland, east of the Shire, where he had spent his youth. On his fiftieth birthday he leaves Bag End and sets out with his friend Peregrin Took (Pippin) and Sam Gamgee; Gandalf has left him for a short time to gather news from the world outside but has not returned yet, which greatly concerns Frodo. The next day the three hobbits notice that they are being followed by the mysterious Black Riders, yet they do not know exactly who they are, and being careful Frodo decides not to let the Riders see them. They meet a wandering group of High Elves lead by Gildor Inglorion in the evening; Frodo talks with Gildor for a long time, and Gildor advises him to try to reach Rivendell in spite of Gandalf’s absence, and tells him that the Black Riders are dangerous servants of the Enemy.
