Title: The Hobbit
Author: J. R. R. Tolkein
Main Characters: Mr. Bilbo Baggins, Thorin, Balin, Dwalin, Ori, Nori, Dori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofor, Bombur, Fili, Kili, Gandalf, Bard, Beorn, Smaug, Elrond, Gollum and Bad Goblins.
Description of one of the main characters: Fili and Kili are the youngest dwarfs who went with Thorin. They are brave. They have sharp eyes. But unfortunately Fili and Kili die during the battle with the Bad Goblins.
Whom I like and Why: I like Thorin. He is the son of Thor, son of Tharain. He is really brave. He tries to get back the gold of his father, Thor from the great giant dragon, Smaug. At last, he too dies during the battle with the Goblins.
Whom I dislike and Why: I dislike Bilbo Baggins as he is such a coward. He is the reason for the war with the goblins and Thorin's death. But still he does not have the courage to accept his mistake.
Setting/Theme of the story: A cowardly Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, is called by the great wizard, Gandalf, to accompany Thorin and his company in an adventure. Twelve of them Thorin, Oin, Gloin, Kili, Fili, Bifur, Bofor, Bombur, Ori, Nori, Dori and Balin set on an adventure to capture the gold of Thor from the dragon Smaug. They have exciting thrills during their adventure and at last, they kill the dragon and get back the treasure. But Fili, Kili and Thorin die during the battle with the Bad Goblins. Bilbo Baggins is blamed for their death but Bilbo gets a fair share of the treasure for accompanying them in the adventure.
Part I enjoyed the most: I enjoyed the part when Bilbo Baggins answers all tricky riddles of Gollum and saves Thorin and company.
