We know them, and we love them. They're there for everything, from comic relief to life-saving feats of bravery. They're the sidekicks. Do they get the credit they're due? Probably not, but we love them anyway.
Here at The Reading Addict, I'll be shining a weekly spotlight on secondary characters I love (like Ron Weasley, obviously).
Origin: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien
Quirky Traits Include: Hobbit, gardener, lover of po-tay-toes
Why I Love Him: Has there really ever been a better sidekick than Sam? I THINK NOT. He sticks with Frodo through the worst of times, from evil black riders to giant spiders, all the while staying positive.
A Quote from Sam: “Come, Mr. Frodo!' he cried. 'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you.”
