Rand, Mat and Perrin are such hobbits. Without the excessive eating.

Especially Mat. He's Pippin.

My "okay, the boys are hobbits" reaction wasn't so strong as my "...okay, they LIVE in the SHIRE" reaction, but then, that's not so different.

(Possibly I failed to compare them to hobbits because when I read what I read of Eye of the World, I was still looking for DT parallels everywhere and promptly mapped them as having the Roland-Bert-Alain dynamic (leader, ka-mai, and strong quiet one), and gunslingers kind of cancel out hobbits in my brain.)

The first book...

is a very deliberate homage to the LOTR.

After that, he goes off and does his own thing.

Man, I really wish he hadn't been eaten by the brain-eater.

Ha! They do start out as such hobbity characters, I agree. It changes (believe me).

Wheel of Time is the one book series that I actually buy the day it comes out because I want to read it that much (I buy Harry Potter so that I can read it before I can spoiled). I love the series and the characters and... I'm really interested in how you like them.
