The original hobbit was named Bilbo Baggins. He makes a brief appearance in The Lord of the Rings. The book is titled The Hobbit, or There and Back Again by Bilbo Baggins.
Hobbits are small half sized humans that exist only in stories. Most of them have either think brown hair or thick red hair. They have no need for shoes because they have natural "leather padded" feet. They enjoy bright colors on their clothing, including yellow, and green. Eating is something that …is really important to the Hobbits. It is a regular routine. (MORE)

No, it will be different in many ways. Example, even though Frodo isn't born until 50 years after it, he will be in the movie.
Many consider it a good read. I personally find it well written anddetailed. Classic literature. [:
One of the best! It was published over 70 years ago and is still being purchased and enjoyed.
Biter is Thorin's sword Orcrist that killed a bunch of goblins years ago. Beater is Glamdring , the sword Gandalf carries for the rest of the stories. Both were blades made for Turgon of Gondolin.
Other than in the name of the Book, In the King James version, the word - acts - does not appear in the New Testament.
\nThis is a matter of opinion. I thought it was a good book because it was suspenseful, exciting, fun, had likeable characters, and was written well.
It is basically about Bilbo Baggins,(Frodos uncle) and how he foes on a quest to kill the dragon with the dwarves and how he ends up finding the " ring ". if you are going to read the lord of the rings you have to read the hobbit first.
there was already a film derived from the book of the hobbit but it is an animation only.
Too many times to count, and I doubt that anyone has ever tried. Unless they are dwarf-crazy, which I doubt...
Tolkien's hobbit characters can only be found in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Some discussion of them can be found in his History of Middle Earth books, basically they are notes about the writing and creation of Middle Earth.
A denouement is an afterwards, a final scene that occurs after the dramatic climax has been reached. They generally wrap up loose ends or let the reader know what happened after the resolution of most of the plot. In The Hobbit, after Bilbo has returned successfully from his quest and restored his l…ife to its old comfortable routines, the denouement occurs when he is visited by Gandalf and Balin and the three discuss what has happened at the Lonely Mountain since Bilbo's return home. It's about a page long in my edition and serves simply to establish that everyone is indeed living happily ever after. Bard's rebuilt Dale, Lake-town has been refounded, Bilbo is living a comfortable life at home, and there's peace between elf, man, and dwarf. (MORE)
The wolves are gathering to meet up with the goblins. They had been working together for some time. This night they were getting ready for a big raid down into the valley against the settlers there to kill and wipe them out.
The cave is the home to goblins of the mountain that attack Bilbo, Gandalf and the dwarves. Gollum also lives in the deepest part of the mountain, where he keeps the ring of power. Bilbo steals the ring and starts a riddle game with Gollum. He beats Gollum and escapes the caves and catches up with t…he dwarves. Gollum will later venture out of the cave to find Frodo and his precious. (MORE)
elvish letters designed for engraving in stone. However at the time of the hobbit and LOTR they are mostly used by dwarves.
Nori, Dori, Ori, Gloin, Oin, Dwalin, Balin, Bombur, Bifur, Bofur, Fili, Kili, and Thorin Oakenshield
Bilbo is the protagonist, a thief in their group, who is a hobbit, and unsure about venturing from his home.
Here usually. If not you could simply Google a website, to see if they had what you wanted.
There are a number of ways they are personified. One is that they are given voices and language. They get made or angry when they are taunted. And they are frustrated when the dwarves escape..
The answer to this question is an essay, not a paragraph. But a few things can be quickly said. Many purposes, they: - represent unfallen humans / angels - show the divine in creation - show the problem of pride and the redemptive value of humility - represent the "art" of magic, v.s. the "scienc…e" of magic (i.e. Saruman) - and that death, if chosen for reasons of love, can be a moral choice - etc. (MORE)
The main characters are: Bilbo Baggins Gandalf the Grey Smaug the dragon Gollum Thorin Oakenshield (and personally, I think if you need more than that,...) The Lord of the Eagles Beorn
No, The Hobbit is not classified as Science Fiction. It belongs in the fantasy genre. Anytime magic is involved, you can pretty much bet it is going to be fantasy..
The word "Reverence" is used only once in the Book of Mormon, in Alma 47:22.
In no particular order: . Istari (Maiar) - Wizards . Hobbits . Grey Elves (Noldor possibly) . Wood Elves (Sylvan) . Adanedhel - Half Elven . Men . Hill Trolls . Orcs . Goblins (as used to refer to the lesser breeds of Orc) . Corrupted Hobbit (since there is only one it is arguab…le if this counts as a race.) . Wargs (sentience unclear) . Great Eagles . Hot Drakes . Beornings (a possible sub-species of Men) . Dwarves . Giant Spiders (responding to specific words and concepts so probably sentient.) . Dragon (probably the last) (MORE)
That will depend on how you define series. The Hobbit is a single book. The Lord of the Rings has six books in it, most will say three, but each of the books has two books in it. There is also the Silmarillion which has Middle Earth and its origins. And there is a whole series called the… History of Middle Earth that has notes and small stories about the fictional land. (MORE)
The Silmarillion , most of the History of Middle Earth and The Children of HÃºrin fall before The Hobbit in the timeline of Middle Earth.
The 'commons' is a term used for areas in a town or city that are 'common' to all the people of the community. They were sort of like parks or gathering places. Most small communities have a large open area near the center of town, often just off the town hall or courthouse like this. In days gone p…ast, sheep were often grazed in the commons to keep the grass low. (MORE)
The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings : the Fellowship of the Ring, Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers, and Lord of the Rings: Return of the king.
The master of Rivendell has always been Elrond. He established Rivendell in the second age with some of the remnant of the Noldor and the Sindar.
The Battle of the Five Armies. . Nope, the "thunder-battle" is a great thunderstorm in the Misty Mountains while the Dwarves and Bilbo try to cross the pass. (Note: In the first edition the "thunder" is literally the crashing of great boulders against the mountains as Giants fight. This is edited… out as "too childish" and incompatible with the "Rings" plot in all later editions, but the "thunder-battle" is left in - just without Giants involved.) (MORE)
The word 'honest' is used twice in the Book of Mormon, once in Helaman 9:36 and once in Alma 27:27.
There are many reasons. It is a classic story and a greatadventure novel. It also has lots of fights.
The Silmarillion, perhaps? But many people find it unreadable. Also it was written first just not edited into publishable form until after JRRT's death.
Only one as a main character: Bilbo Baggins. Others are mentioned, but do not play a main part. Six others are mentioned by name: Belladonna Took and Bungo Baggins, mentioned as Bilbo's parents. The Old Took Mr. Grubb, Mr. Grubb, and Mr. Burrowes, who were responsible for selling off …Bilbo's estate after he had been presumed dead And there is also a mention of the Sackville-Bagginses, although none are mentioned by name.

Yes there was, Bilbo was fighting himself not to be takin over by the ring. I hope this helped! -Skeeter
The word 'obey' is used 15 times in the Book of Mormon. Similar words include 'obedient' (11 times), obeyeth (1 time), obedience (1 time), obeyed (1 time), obeying (1 time), and disobedience (2 times).
The atmosphere of the hobbit book would be "adventure, stepping out of your comfort zone, and living life to the fullest" It took place in the shire, in caves , along side of mountains, in the woods, in elf villages, and many other places.
There are parts of the book that are not possible. There are no dwarves or elves or dragons in the real world.
I think so. But that's just my opinion. It is one of my favorites. I have about a dozen copies in five languages as well as the primary books about the writing and history of The Hobbit.
no of course not its a classic that does not need to be even slightly duplicated. think big create your own ceatures or race of people.
A 1956 edition in excellent shape, with dustcover would be worth around $50 to $100 to a collector.
With all due respect might I ask that you ask a more intelligent question than this. Though your question deserves an answer it is unworhty of a person who desires more knowledhe in what the message of the Book of Mormon contains. Therefore the answer is 40 times which includes "delightsome and deli…ghful and delightethl" With respect (MORE)
Not really. There is mention of some of Bilbo's relatives, but none of them have any real role in the story. Though the movie version is going to play up on it and will actually have Frodo in the story, even though Frodo isn't born until 30 years after Bilbo returns from his adventure.
It is definitely a fantasy book. Most people would consider it classic in both the time it has been in existance and the format fitting the classic legend format.
The three main ones are swords, bows and axes. Biter and Beater are the two named swords that Gandalf and Thoran get from the trolls.
In the end, there is the Battle of Five Armies, in which Thorindies, and Kili and Fili die defending him, for he was their uncle.Bilbo had used his ring to become invisible and didn't really doany fighting. He was knocked out when he cried out "Eagles! TheEagles are coming!" and was hit on the head …with a rock. After theyall said their goodbyes, Gandalf and Bilbo head to Rivendell whereGandalf talks to Elrond about what happened. Then they returned tothe Shire where Bilbo finds an auction going on at Bag End. Hethinks that Lobelia stole all his spoons though. After a few years, Balin and Gandalf come to his house and visit.

The word 'witness' is used in 16 different verses in the book of John in the KVJ. In some of those verses the word 'witness' appears more than once. The word 'witness' only appears 4 times in the NIV so the count varies depending on which translation you use. Starting with John 1:7 The same c…ame for a witness , to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. . and ending with John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. . (MORE)
A burglar is a person who breaks into houses and steals things. In this case, the dwarves wanted someone to break into Smaug's house and steal his gold.
