Just putting it out there, there is a psycology term know as Sam Gamgee, I'm not sure 100% what it means, but i believe it has something to do with being obliviously loyal...
I think that the heros are Aragorn, Gandalf, and Frodam (frodo/sam) Frodo and Sam are one awesome mega hobbit that can't be separated. Gandalf had to make the plans for goodness sake! Without him, GOLLUM would still have the ring, or it would have been wrestled from the shire (in a not so pleasant way...) Gandalf is basically the plot maker of the story
Aragorn I admire most though. He's strong, yet weak. He's magnificent, but foul. He's super duper! He's basically a normal guy, or as he's so oftenly mentioned as "a mere ranger from the north" and he's the last of heir to the throne of Gondor; the last heir of the Dunedain. He has to deal with becoming king after centuries of their not being one, while also being caught in a romance that is possibly hoplessly tragic. He's very Jesus like (if not in appearance
) But I always admired his character out of all of them. I saw the movies before I read the books, and in FOTR, I just called him the sweaty guy
I didn't even swoon over Orlando!
And finally Frodam. They're the least likely to succeed, and lo and behold, they do against all odds. And their mutual love for each other (in the friendly way...) was so emphatic and touching that you automatically fall in love with the characters and pray they make it to their goal.
Such great character developement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
