A re-read I had to do after watching the movies on blu-ray. Amazing how much Tolkien relied on passive sentence structures. The dialog is stilted, with the exception of that by Sam, sometimes. It's hard, though, reading this critically, since I've read it so many times before and enjoyed the movies (despite the stupid changes made).
