I thought his was good but I have a question. Earlier in the film, Eomer was imprisoned by Wormtongue was he not? If so then how did he and the entire army of the Rohirrim escape?

I can't recall the specific name of the book but one of Frank Herbert's Dune books could be a fierce contender. One of them is practically all focused on the philosophical and less on plot. Although...

Eol - Well, have you read any books by Terry Brooks? For me his descriptions of internal character deliberations (while good) seems to scoop away wonder and become character rants.

Eol, yes that is true but when an author describes the character so much at the first encounter that the joy of discovery is destroyed it kills some of the wonder. I'd say this has become a pet peeve...
