Well this is a hard question, they all are endearing and wonderfull in their own right and loyal to the end. Munti and Pippin both had quite a progression in the story, of obtaining loyalty to Rohan and Gondor. Both died abbroad and as heroes. Sam is the loyal hero whom carries the burdon loyal to the bitter end. Frodo is the protagonist and is in the focus alot, And hes burden is felt in every P.o.V. he get some critique of being wainy, tiresome, which is an honest opinion. I also wore tiresome of the Frodo chapters yet they also was layered with sympathi and intence moments of pure horro.

a little correction: Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took, or shortly Merry and Pippin (where did you come up with "Munti"?), don't die abroad; they return home, taller than they left due to the waters of Fangorn, to clear the Shire and expel the human ruffians that overtook it

Hi,

Weird, while I enjoyed the films, A LOT (with some outstanding performances!), in many ways, I am not a fan of these books and they did not shake me as much as the films did, for example.

I, usually, live "inside" the story, and surprisingly enough for me, the weird part was that the film held more of my mind than any of the parts of the series ... I don't know that I can explain that properly at all, btw!

There aren't many "series" that I enjoy reading, though the Cornwell's series (the one that ended up having Sean Bean on 16 episodes in Spain and France around the time of Wellington and Napoleon), but I think that it may have been that its "history" is closer to my sentiments, since it is European by inclination ... and as much as I live within a dream world in my mind to write and such, something like Cornwell's stories are easier for my mind to believe, than the phantasmagoric vision in the Fellowship ... and this is the part that is a bit weird for me.

Another example, is the series of books by Carlos Castaneda, where the last 4 books (ending in The Art of Dreaming) are fantastic and have a lot of things I have experienced and can play with inside my mind ... and this is one of the reasons why those books are so special to me ... and many folks think its just crap ... and it's akin to reading THE BARDO ... where each stage is separated by a "door" that is guarded by a "dragon", and I know inside that it is just an image for ourselves when we are confronted with something that we don't know and are afraid to face ... this was the same thing with myself and a girlfriend in a supposed "haunted house with ghosts" ... and it didn't bother me ... and I had the feeling that it was not exactly clear and true, because its "movement" was not open ... it was "centralized"! Thus, its supposed fears disappeared in me, and I even laughed a few times which made my girlfriend get even more scared!

Now you kow why some films and literature make it with me and some don't.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

In the appendices is told that Meriadoc and Peregrin passed to their sons and they spent their last years in Rohan and Gondor.

My hobbit ranking: Frodo > Bilbo >= Samwise > Merry > Pippin

yes, they FINALLY died there. but the post made it sound as if they died there in the course of the events described in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, which they did not

The only character that I relate to in LOTR is Tom Bombadil, and sadly he was excluded in the movies.

As for the hobbits, hmm. Frodo, I guess.

I love Sam the best, for his loyalty and steadfastness.  He was every bit as important at Frodo in the tale, as took the burden when Frodo could not.  He gave the ring back to Frodo after carrying it's burden, because he didn't fall as easily to it's lure (although Frodo kind of had to, in order to battle Gollum in the end as he did).  He went back home afterwards, married the girl he loved and lived his life as a good Hobbit.

I just had remembered this one some days ago!  Good one!  Big smile  Clap

I'll go with Merry..  because I like the first part of 'The Fellowship..' the most out of the trilogy, in which Tolkien doesn't rush to go with the plot as in the movies, and at will relates the idiosyncracy of life in the Shire, the parental relations, customs, etc., and beautifully describes the outskirts when they are already traveling.

About the end of that part, when they plan to accompany Frodo on his trip, and they were leaving the outskirts of the Shire, they have to sort-of cross to an (enchanted) Forest and if I remember well is Merry who knows someone around there, or his family is from there, I don't remember, and he gets with the way around to get to the Forest..  through some door or something in a sort-of tunnel or wall.

Though Frodo gets points for his sheer bravery at the Barrows.. (that also doesn't show in the movie) when he overcomes his fear and saves them all, with Tom Bombadil's help maybe, don't remember exactly.

(I re-read the trilogy all-in-one for Kindle some 3 or 4 years ago, first time in english, and was greatly impressed by that extense first part; though the telling of Frodo and Sam's calvary through Mordor's landscape in 'The Return..' is a favorite too).  Thumbs Up
