The Kindness of Strangers
Ch. 17: A Hopeless Fool
I can only echo what TariElfLady said about this chapter. It is an appalling but, sadly understandable journey that we share with Saruman in this chapter, as we see him careening between hope and despair, the possibility of redemption and the ultimate succumbing to darkness, the impulses of human warmth and the corruption of those same impulses.
Say what one may about Saruman, though, he shows some steely nerve at the end of this chapter, in his dealings with the Nazgûl. (Not to put too fine a point on it, I'd have been on the floor like a wuss.)
