Tolkien: Hobbits are fat, peace-loving individuals who enjoy eating, drinking and smoking excessively. They dislike machines too. They are also harder to kill than a cockroach. All the Hobbits in this story are toffs, except for Sam, who isn’t. If you want to know how Bilbo really got hold of the Ring, read The Hobbit.

p.s. All the toffs come back to the Shire and rule at the end of the book. Except for Sam, who doesn’t. Rule, that is.
