The Shaping of Samwise  by jodancingtree 4 Review(s)
CalimeReviewed Chapter: 9 on 1/26/2005
A charming and completely hobbitish story. :-) It was so Sam--and so Frodo. The disapproval of the hobbits for the fancy garden mechanism was believably characteristic, as well. Delightful, Jo!

I enjoyed this. I liked the way there was an ending that did not easily lead to Sam's "clearance" in the eyes of all Hobbiton, or the final come-uppance of Ted, because so often in life, those things never happen, while so often in fics they do. The ending that does happen -- the forming of the solid bond between the two -- feels very "right," and whole.

Lovely story! Thank you.

Author Reply: I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Gentle Hobbit. You're right - the nice tying up of all loose ends rarely happens in real life...

Thanks for reviewing!

Jo- Wonderfully done, as usual. I have always really enjoyed your stories and look forward to more in the future. A great fic, and Sam's point of view from the very beginning, you captured the pure essence of his innocence and fighting spirit. Thanks again, tree

Author Reply: Thank you so much, lovethosehobbits! I do love Samwise - Frodo is more compelling to me, but Sam is fresh air and sunshine and good fresh bread!

I've already told you that this is one of my favourites. Glad to see you posting it here!

Didn't have time to re-read tonight. Have you made any changes? I look forward to a more leisurely time when I can go through the whole story once more.

Author Reply: Thanks, Lindelea! No, really didn't make any changes, I just thought it was time I had the English version up here (I'm going to send the link to a friend, and wanted all my stories here, in case he actually decides to read...)
