You get something wrong. Bilbo Baggins was 55 when he left Hobbiton, not Frodo. Frodo actually was that young when he started his adventure.

And when I say young, it is because Hobbits is legal adults at the age of 33. So. Good, I guess.

He had just turned 50 years old the day before. He was born September 22nd 1368 SR and left the Shire with the Ring on September 23rd 1418 SR. (SR as in Shire Reckoning.) Though, the rung made homage much slower and it was also described that a 50 year old hobbit has the mental age and physique of a 33 year old human.

Slat is right, Frodo was 33 when Bilbo left the Shire after his birthday. There was a 20 year wait before Gandalf came back to Frodo to send him on his journey. Making Frodo around the age of 53.

That... Is not the way I remember it.

Re-read it.

No. Read all three two times, too much work. The Hobbit is more like me.

It's in the first two chapters of Fellowship <_< that's really not that much work.

50 pages before the story actually begin to take form.

You know, just doing this funny thing that authors do "setting the stage" before just jumping in.

50. Pages. I don't find it bad or anything, I just want to be committed to these books if I aim to start reading them again.

Oh lordy, you may accidentally find yourself reading them again. That would be terrible lol
User avatar #82 to #81 - thewisedane (09/18/2013) [-]
It really would, when I'm not interrested in doing it.
User avatar #83 to #82 - gigglesthegreat (09/18/2013) [-]
It's the fearfulness that you'd "become" interested in reading them when you are not currently then? lol
User avatar #84 to #83 - thewisedane (09/18/2013) [-]
It is the fear of being invested when I am not actually wanting to read them. I read them from time to time if I feel like it, but then I read them through, and not just a small bit.

Well get your facts right before you start posting about lord of the rings. Tolkien created not just a story, but an entire world and history. Anything you can think of, there is an answer. For example, reversed is considered the oldest living thing in middle earth. Aside from Tom bombodle who is said to hAve watched the first trees grow.
