    1. I agree completely that Sam is the true hero! I am Wench enough to admit that I've not read the books. I tried, honestly. I just couldn't do it. The movies rocked my world though. Every so often the line, "don't you leave him Samwise Gamgee. And I don't mean to" runs through my head, randomly. And it gives me chills every time. We should all strive to be half the Hobbit Sam was. And hope to have a friend like him.

    2. I love the books, but the movies were freaking amazing too. God. He makes me cry so hard when he starts crying in the movies. I LOVE HIM. I love the strong friendship theme in Tolkien's work... really.. that is what all his stories are about.
