I couldn't get past about page 10 or so... I have decided that Frodo is an awful character in the books. Sam is amazing, but Frodo really drags the narrative down. He isn't quite as bad in the movie, but even Elijah Wood's pretty face can't stop me from wanting to smack him. I realize that we are supposed to take this as the ring just being so powerful that it corrupts everything about him, but he whines so much that I can't feel any sympathy.
