Dude, I know. Wait until you meet
Tom Bombadil the Green Man.
You know it's true.
*dies* they so are.
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.)
*giggles* Well, that too, now you mention it.

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.
Hmm. Never thought of it like that.
they start of as hobbits. then...well...hrm. then they become psycho hobbits.
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.
