Gandalf, Fili, Kili, Bombur, Bofur, Bifur, Oin, Gloin, Balin, Dwalin, Dori, Nori, Ori, and Thorin Oakenshield.
in short, yes. he is a very hesitant hobbit, but with an irrepressible spirit for adventure.
The Took genes, huh? Well they created in Bilbo a certain sense of curiousity, and a love of adventure. It was that sense of adventure that finally got Bilbo to go along with the dwarves on their journey to Smaug's Mountain.
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit in The Hobbit, a sort of prequel to Tolkien's series The Lord of the Rings (consisting of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King), who lives in Bag End, a hobbit-hole in Hobbiton.In The Hobbit (or, There and Back Again), Bilbo goes on a quest with a bunch of dwarves and a wizard named Gandalf to defeat the dragon Smaug, and reclaim the treasure (some dwarvish) which, over the years, Smaug has collected.In the actual Lord of the Rings series, Bilbo is grandfather to the (orphaned) main character, Frodo Baggins.
Most certainly not! He is sedentary and set in his ways at home, but has a bit of a yearning for adventure. Afterwards, he is content with his adventures, but still has a wanderlust to go back and see the elves and dwarves.
For the Dwarves it was to reclaim their home and treasure. For Bilbo it was to go on an adventure For Gandalf it was to destroy Smaug so Sauron could not recruit him.
Bilbo went on an adventure with the thirteen dwarves, Fili, Kili, Balin, Dwalin, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and Thorin Oakenshield, and Gandalf the Wizard was with them some of the time, too.
At the end of the "the Hobbit" Bilbo leaves a note with the ring attached to it, saying that he plans to go traveling. At the beginning of "fellowship of the ring" Gandalf tells frodo to take the ring to Mordor and destroy it in the fires of the volcano. Bilbo does have a few minor parts in the later books but he is an old hobbit.
The main character is named Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit from The Shire, who is also in The Lord of the Rings books. There are the dwarves that go with him on his adventure. The leader is Gandalf the Wizard, but he later leaves the group and leaves Thorin, the most important dwarf, in charge. Then there is Balin, who is also mentioned in The Lord of the Rings, and is said to like Bilbo the most. Beorn, a "skin changer," who can take shape of a bear, also plays an important part in helping Bilbo, Gandalf, and the dwarves.
Gandalf gives him "My pardon. I give it you. In fact I will go so far as to send you on this adventure."
Hobbits don't actually exist, so the only thing we have to go on is what Tolkien said: The oldest recorded age for a hobbit prior to Bilbo Baggins was the Old Took, who lived to be 130 years old. Bilbo celebrated his 131st birthday before leaving for the Grey Havens. (Since Bilbo and Frodo (and eventually Sam) went to the Undying Lands, technically there's no upper limit, though Bilbo lived the longest of any hobbit in Middle-Earth.)
The narrator is really never fully identified, it is a voice that tells the story and interjects bits and pieces as you go along. The book was supposedly written by Bilbo Baggins and JRR Tolkien 'translated' it.
Bilbo Baggins is the real leader in The Hobbit because he does a veritety of things to make him hero like. For example: Bilbo saves the dwarves from the spiders; he goes partway down the tunnel to Smaug even though its Thorin's treasure; and he even brightens the mood when everyone is feeling down before the go after Smaug by telling them that they can do it. Bilbo is the most mature one and that's why I think he deserves the real hero and the actual leader of the quest in The Hobbit.
Bilbo Baggins boarded the white elven ship that took him to the Undying Lands at the port city of Mithlond, also known as the Grey Havens, which was under the rule of Cirdan the Shipwright.
He finally proved himself worthy to them, showing that Bilbo could actually get away from the goblins. Before they all thought he was incapable to go on an adventure and get all the gold ,therefore they have a good opinion on him.
Bilbo intended to go back into the horrible tunnels and look for his friends now that he had the ring.
The rising action of The Hobbit is when Bilbo and his band of dwarves come to the Lonely Mountain and go inside.
Bilbo was hired by Thorin and his party of dwarves. They went to the Lonely Mountain. There Bilbo helped them retrieve their treasure from the dragon Smaug.
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien became fluent in many languages (Greek, Latin,etc.)In 1937, he wrote The Hobbit.(now the movies are coming out in 2012 and 2013.) The Hobbit is about a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins who lived in Hobbiton (in The Shire). Bilbo was never really up for adventure, he would much rather have his morning tea than go on one. When 13 dwarves showed up at his home as did Gandalf the wizard; thus beginning talk about an amazing journey to the Mountians. The Misty Mountains and the Lonely Mountian. The journey continues till the end of the book. He also created The Lord Of The Rings series, The Hobbitbeing a prequel. The series includes The Fellowship Of The Ring which was published in 1954 and the movie came out in 2001, and then The Two Towers which was published in 1954 and the movie came out in 2002, and then The Return Of The King which was published in 1955 and the movie came out in 2003. The journey of Bilbo Baggins continues with his favorite nephew, Frodo Baggins, who he adopts as his son. The Bagginses misfourtunes (& fourtunes) with the Ring continue from The Hobbit til The Return Of The King.Those plus the book Silmarillion, are some of J.R.R. Tolkiens greatest accomplishments.
he wants to find his friend
They Went through Mirkwood
He sailed over the sea to the Undying Lands, with Gandalf, Bilbo, and the last of the elves.
Because he doesnt have a choice. He doesn't particularly want to :)
They asked them to go along and their adventure as their burglar.
Besides the chapter where the dwarves are captured by the Goblins.
As much as he dreaded it, his "Tookish side" kicked in and he wanted to go.
