The Hobbit Aman Ibrahim Questions 4-7 Questions 8 & 9 Benefits from the Story Favorite Quote Movie Trailer Hobbit Culture Author's Purpose Book's Strengths Bilbo's Obstacles Why I choose the Hobbit Was Bilbo a Hero? Bilbo's Journey Questions 1-3 The reason why I choose The Hobbit as my
book of choice was because it is the prequal
to the Lord of the Rings and I really wanted to
get into Lord of the Rings series because of how popular it is on the internet. The protagonist, Bilbo Baggins, went through change throughout the whole entire journey. He had a physical journey with the wizards and the dwarfs. He also went through an emotional journey because his feelings about life had changed by the end of the story. He became a scared little man to a much more stronger and braver hobbit. Most people expect a hero to be some one in a costume and save a person who is falling off a skyscraper. To me it is someone who impacts someone's life in such a positive way that they could never be whoever they were afterward without that hero. I also believe a hero can also be someone who revolutionized an idea.

Bilbo is definitely an example of a hero because of the various times in the book he risks his life for others. In the end he was looked up to as a hero by everyone else except his fellow hobbits who thought of him as a disgrace for going on an adventure. Bilbo definitely went through difficult time during his story. He had to struggle in getting used to leaving his home for a journey that had involved cold, starving and scary nights. He became stronger though. He escaped the trolls and goblins, tricked the Gollumn and helped kill many giant spiders and a dragon. Why did the author have this book published? I think it was because of the author's interest in fantasy and his best way to express his ideas, especially back then (1930s), was through writing. The author also loved telling stories to his children as well. I believe The Hobbit was an excellent story especially the way it pulled me in, which is its greatest strength. Whenever you start a new chapter it starts where left off and by the end of the chapter some important event has happened and you want to read the next chapter because you must know how the characters react.
"A sudden understanding, a pity mixed with horror, welled up in Bilbo's heart: a glimpse of endless unmarked days without light or hope of betterment, hard stone, cold fish, sneaking and whispering."
(Tolkien 67)
I like this quote because it shows the creativity of the author and how he uses very descriptive words. Bilbo's society can be somewhat similar and very different to ours. Hobbits love to stay home and eat and never leave their homes (like some of us on the weekends if you know what I mean). Hobbits also hate people who do anything unordinary, unlike our society because we do unordinary things every day. Hobbits know their neighbors like family, unlike some of us who could not care less for one another. I have learned a few things while reading The Hobbit. One thing I have learned was to not underestimate yourself. When Bilbo was first asked to go on a journey he was not sure he would ever return home but instead he did come back more stronger and brave than before. "Do we really have to go through [Mirkwood] " groaned the hobbit. "Yes you do!" said the wizard, "If you want to get to the other side. You must either go through or give up. There are no safe paths in the world."
(Tolkien 110) Outside Reading Project- for Epic
Mrs Gaskins
English 1 Story written by: J. R. R. Tolkien I like this one because it really supports effort and perseverance. It tells you giving up is not an option if you want to succeed. It's always pain then glory. Thank You FOR YOUR ATTENTION Why should you read this book? I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the following:
Fantastic Stories
The Lord of the Ring series
The reason why this a 'must read' book because of how the story is told and how quickly you get attached to the book. By the time you are done reading it you will wish more books were like The Hobbit.
