I like the idea of Gollum
and of course dear old Sam, but who cares about the ring?
I didn't as soon as I had came across Aragorn.
His fate interested me, then Éowyn, when she came in, imagine my confusion with the outcome
. Wasn't able to read the appendix about Aragorn and Arwen and get the explanation until three years later, so first I was just angry, but then I started to see all the signs in the book, Rivendell, conversations between Aragorn and Éowyn etc.

I do love Faramir, because he is the best man in LOTR, better than Aragorn probably (bad Estel
) but at the same time I think he is too good to accomplish anything.
Aragorn has ambition and a couple of driving forces to do good, like getting his girl
and finally being recognized, not being called ugly things by the likes of Denethor. He is just more interesting, more of a riddle and I've always loved tall, dark, mysterious men.
Besides, a hero should be conflicted, who is interested in "helyllegrabbar"?
Sorry, can't find a good expression in English.
"Helyllegrabbar" means "pure wool boys".
