This was the Salon reviewer's take on Celeborn asking (words probably aren't exact), "Eight there are here, but nine set out from Rivendell. Where is Gandalf? I very much want to talk with him."
Then Galadriel, taking over Aragorn's line from the book, and evidently reading someone's mind to get the information, says, "He has fallen into shadow."
Celeborn's demeanor is quite cold and I can see how someone could possibly call it demanding, although that would be stretching it.
How the reviewer got "know-it-all" from Galadriel's gentle reply, I don't know. (Unless she thought Galadriel was just showing off: "Ha, ha! I can read minds and you can't!")
