Bilbo and the dwarves stray from the path because they see a light in the distance. They stray even though they are told many times to keep to the path.
The dwarves were cheerful because they had finally taken their kingdom of the Lonely Mountain after the great dragon Smaug was defeated by the Lake men. Bilbo was unhappy because when he was back at the shire, he always wished to go back and see the dwarves of the Lonely Mountain and wander the paths of Mirkwood.
Bilbo can see that he and the dwarves are about to be overwhelmed by the spiders and decides he has to disappear in front of them. After they get away the dwarves are bewildered by his turning invisible and must have the story of his escape from Gollum again. Balin in particular feels he is owed an explanation because Bilbo made him look bad earlier when he snuck past Balin on guard.
He caught his first glimpse of "The Lonely Mountain", the dwarves' final destination.
It may have been the influence of the ring working on him.
The Hobbit is not a history telling book, as the Silmarillion is. The Hobbit is solely about the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, and his adventures. Probably the most important thing you learn of is the passing of the Ring to Bilbo, which is the whole problem in The Lord of the Rings. You also see how important the quest of the dwarves is, because if Smaug instead of the dwarves were there, he may have done terrible things under Sauron's dominion, just as Gandalf recollects.
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.
He appealed to the Tookish side of Bilbo's heart: Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.
Bilbo sneaks out of the dwarf camp to give the Arkenstone to the beseigers. He is surprised to see Gandalf there.
He threw rocks at them and called them names. Sometimes he wore the ring so they could see him, other times they could see him. His insults drew them away from the dwarves and he doubled back and rescued them.
Because he is their burglar and they think it's a good job for a burglar.
Bilbo knows that Thorin will never give into the demands of the Men and Elves. He also see that it makes sense that the Dwarves compensate the men of the lake for the trouble the dragon caused, and probably felt a bit responsible since he was the reason the dragon stirred in the first place.
Gandalf, because Bilbo left the Thorin's people back home. When Gandalf saw him he was the most puzzled of all because he actually thought he was serious this time.
To a large rock, where they clearly see the Lonely Mountain Or in the Original book, they are taken to a rock; (Beorn calls this his Carrock), but it is near Beorn's house, which is west of mirkwood
The Hobbit is a predecessor to the the well known Lord of the Rings trilogy.The story follows Bilbo Baggins, a rather plump hobbits, as he finds himself unwittingly drawn into an adventure by the wizard, Gandalf. Along with thirteen dwarves, he finds himself bound for Lonely Mountain, where a dragon named Smaug hordes stolen treasure. But the road is wrought with danger.A hobbit of the peaceful land of the Shire, is recruited by a wizard and 13 dwarves to help them retake their mountain Erebor from the clutches of an evil dragon. To journey there they face grave perils as they encounter Goblins and wolves and magic forest, giant spiders and elves. Using magic and quick thinking, with the help of giant eagles and man who can turn into a bear, they manage to complete their quest, only to realize that there are more important things in life.Bilbo Baggins lives a quiet, peaceful life in his comfortable hole at Bag End. Bilbo lives in a hole because he is a hobbit-one of a race of small, plump people about half the size of humans, with furry toes and a great love of good food and drink. Bilbo is quite content at Bag End, near the bustling hobbit village of Hobbiton, but one day his comfort is shattered by the arrival of the old wizard Gandalf, who persuades Bilbo to set out on an adventure with a group of thirteen militant dwarves. The dwarves are embarking on a great quest to reclaim their treasure from the marauding dragon Smaug, and Bilbo is to act as their "burglar." The dwarves are very skeptical about Gandalf's choice for a burglar, and Bilbo is terrified to leave his comfortable life to seek adventure. But Gandalf assures both Bilbo and the dwarves that there is more to the little hobbit than meets the eye. Shortly after the group sets out, three hungry trolls capture all of them except for Gandalf. Gandalf tricks the trolls into remaining outside when the sun comes up, and the sunlight turns the nocturnal trolls to stone. The group finds a great cache of weapons in the trolls' camp. Gandalf and the dwarf lord Thorin take magic swords, and Bilbo takes a small sword of his own. The group rests at the elfish stronghold of Rivendell, where they receive advice from the great elf lord Elrond, then sets out to cross the Misty Mountains. When they find shelter in a cave during a snowstorm, a group of goblins who live in the caverns beneath the mountain take them prisoner. Gandalf leads the dwarves to a passage out of the mountain, but they accidentally leave behind Bilbo. Wandering through the tunnels, Bilbo finds a strange golden ring lying on the ground. He takes the ring and puts it in his pocket. Soon he encounters Gollum, a hissing, whining creature who lives in a pool in the caverns and hunts fish and goblins. Gollum wants to eat Bilbo, and the two have a contest of riddles to determine Bilbo's fate. Bilbo wins by asking the dubious riddle, "What have I got in my pocket?" Gollum wants to eat Bilbo anyway, and he disappears to fetch his magic ring, which turns its wearer invisible. The ring, however, is the same one Bilbo has already found, and Bilbo uses it to escape from Gollum and flee the goblins. He finds a tunnel leading up out of the mountain and discovers that the dwarves and Gandalf have already escaped. Evil wolves known as Wargs pursue them, but Bilbo and his comrades are helped to safety by a group of great eagles and by Beorn, a creature who can change shape from a man into a bear. The company enters the dark forest of Mirkwood, and, making matters worse, Gandalf abandons them to see to some other urgent business. In the forest, the dwarves are caught in the webs of some giant spiders, and Bilbo must rescue them with his sword and magic ring. After slaying his first spider, Bilbo names his sword Sting. Shortly after escaping the spiders, the unlucky dwarves are captured by a group of wood elves who live near the river that runs through Mirkwood. Bilbo uses his ring to help the company escape and slips the dwarves away from the elves by hiding them inside barrels, which he then floats down the river. The dwarves arrive at Lake Town, a human settlement near the Lonely Mountain, under which the great dragon sleeps with Thorin's treasure. After sneaking into the mountain, Bilbo talks to the sly dragon Smaug, who unwittingly reveals that his armorlike scales have a weak spot near his heart. When Bilbo steals a golden cup from the dragon's hoard, Smaug is furious and flies out of the mountain to burn Lake Town in his rage. Bard, a heroic archer, has learned the secret about Smaug's weakness from a thrush, and he fires an arrow into the dragon's heart, killing him. Before Smaug dies, however, he burns Lake Town to the ground. The humans of Lake Town and the elves of Mirkwood march to the Lonely Mountain to seek a share of the treasure as compensation for their losses and aid, but Thorin greedily refuses, and the humans and elves besiege the mountain, trapping the dwarves and the hobbit inside. Bilbo sneaks out to join the humans in an attempt to bring peace. When Thorin learns what Bilbo has done, he is livid, but Gandalf suddenly reappears and saves Bilbo from the dwarf lord's wrath. At this moment, an army of goblins and Wargs marches on the mountain, and the humans, elves, and dwarves are forced to band together to defeat them. The goblins nearly win, but the arrival of Beorn and the eagles helps the good armies win the battle. After the battle, Bilbo and Gandalf return to Hobbiton, where Bilbo continues to live. He is no longer accepted by respectable hobbit society, but he does not care. Bilbo now prefers to talk to elves and wizards, and he is deeply content to be back among the familiar comforts of home after his grand and harrowing adventures.
He thought the dwarves had all left him for good, and did not see the letter they left him on the fireplace asking if he would meet them at the inn at a certain time. So he sat down to nice breakfast, and it was there that Gandalf found him when he hurried in. He informed Bilbo he had ten minutes to get to The Green Dragon, and so Bilbo ran (forgetting to bring anything but the clothes on his back). However, it cannot be said that he was late for the adventure, for he wasn't.
I would be surprised to see a cello.
Bilbo was able to see the monster around the fields and can sense how far or nearby he was.
There are two answers to this.In The Hobbit, Bilbo keeps the ring to himself because he knows it might give him an advantage. He understands that the Dwarves see him as a simple person, and that he is probably very naive by comparison. So he tries to be observant and use whatever he can to show himself to be useful and to honor his agreement with them. He sees the ring as an means to that end.In hindsight, taking The Lord of the Rings into account, we know that the Ring had a will of its own, and knew that while the Dwarves might be corruptible, it would likely end up in a treasure hoard where it might never be found. None of the Dwarven Rings are ever mentioned in the book, aside from it telling us that there were seven of them. There are no Dwarven ring-wraiths, so it must be assumed that they simply hoarded the rings away. The One Ring wanted to get back to Sauron, and so thought that staying with Bilbo would facilitate that.
The ring gave Bilbo the power of invisibility that's y Gollum couldn't see him
You should read it to really see what happens, as how you experience the book is just as important as what actually happens in it. However, here is the summary for chapter nine: Bilbo and the dwarves have just defeated the spiders, and they struggle to escape the wood. They pick a random direction, but that way leads to an ambush by the Wood-elves. They surrender immediately, too tired and hungry to put up a fight. However, Bilbo slips on his ring so that he can become invisible and follow them. Inside the cavern they are led to, there is a great hall where the Elvenking sits on his throne. He questions the dwarves, but gets no answers (the dwarves don't want to tell him of their plans to get Smaug's treasure, fearing that the elves will want a share). This makes the king angry, and he imprisons them. After a couple weeks of Bilbo sneaking around the elf palace, he finds out where the dwarves are kept--even Thorin, whom he learns is also being kept there. Bilbo tells them all not to tell the king anything. He discovers that a stream runs underneath the palace and flows into the forest. There are trap doors in the king's cellars to drop barrels in the river (to transport them to the Long Lake where men live). When a new shipment of wine comes in for the king's feast, the butler and guards leave their posts to try it, and fall asleep after getting drunk. Bilbo steals the cell keys and frees Thorin and the other dwarves. He has them climb into barrels into the room with the trap doors, and they wait for the guards to come in and push the barrels through the doors and into the river. Still invisible, Bilbo clings to the last barrel as it's pushed into the river. Eventually, the barrels float to a shore, where people tie the barrels together. Bilbo climbs on top of the barrel raft just as the raft elves push it down the river towards Laketown.
Because Thorin is the grandson of the King of below the Mountain (Thror). They are happy to see him and the other dwarves.
