The Hobbit: Book Review

IntroductionThe book I read and analyzed was "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkein. I shall
discuss the plot and character development, setting, author's style and my opinions about
it.Plot DevelopmentThere are too many characters in the story and so it is hard to follow
and know each one of them. (There are many dwarves and it's confusing.)In the beginning
there is an introduction where the author tells a bit about what is a hobbit and the
hobbit's (Bilbo) family. It is not very complicated and the author makes it easy to
understand. This introduction gives the general background, which makes the story easier
to understand, for the plot and its development.The plot development in the middle is not
complicated and easy to follow. It can even be summarized in a few sentences.The ending is
expected since the author gives hints about it. As in the introduction when he says that
the hobbit would gain something, this means that he will not die. Then, the reader is not
kept in suspense and does not expect to see what happens at the end. The last climax (or
what is supposed to be the climax) takes a long time to occur (the last fight—good (men,
elves, dwarves & eagles) vs. evil (wargs & goblins)) and this reduces its
effectiveness.After the climax there is the long return home. It is quite boring since
there is nothing to expect to and the reader knows that the hobbit would get home safely.
In my opinion it should have been shorter.Character DevelopmentThe creation of the
characters is done by their dialogues and monologues, actions and things noted by the
narrator (the author in this case) himself. An example for dialogue: "All the same, I
should like it all plain and clear, also I should like to know about risks, out-of-pocket
expenses..." (by Bilbo, page 22, it shows that he is not ready to jump into things so
quickly). An example for a monologue: "Now is the time for our esteemed Mr. Baggins, who
has proved himself..." (by Thorin, page 210, it shows Thorin's style). A good example for
action is when Thorin blocked the Gate in the mountain that shows the reader that the
treasure is important to Thorin and he rather die than giving it away. An example for
notes by the author: "You are familiar with Thorin's style on important occasions..."
(page 210) the author talks directly to the reader and helps him understand the text.Each
character has a physical description. The length and content of the description increase
as the character importance to the plot increases (e.g., the hobbit has very long
descriptions in the story (especially in the introduction) and the Elvenking has fewer
descriptions). The more important characters get an emotional description too, but it is
not well seen, but it can be extracted from the text by analyzing it. The example I gave
before about Bilbo not rushing into things is a good example for this too.The central
figure is the hobbit, Bilbo. He is the one that makes many things occur by his mistakes
and luck. The author gives long descriptions of him and refers to him a lot, he also made
him save his companions' life and without him the plot would not have been the same.The
supporting cast is divided into the more important characters (such as the dwarves and
Gandalf) into less important and less described ones (such as the elf guards that caught
the party in the woods).It is hard to believe that the characters can exist in reality
since they cannot, and they are not supposed to since it is a fantasy book.SettingThe
story occurs in the imaginary world—Middle-earth—created by the author, it is
appropriate since creatures that are found in the book (e.g., goblins and dwarves) do not
exist in our world.Since the story happens in many places over Middle-earth the author

    The Hobbit5 The Hobbit Plot Many events and conflicts occurred in this story. In The Hobbit, I noticed conflicts such as Bilbo Baggins vs. himself, all the hobbits vs. Smaug, and Bilbo vs. the other hobbits. Bilbo was not readily accepted by the hobbits he was traveling with. The only reason he was allowed to go was because Gandolf, the wondering wizard, assures the others that Bilbos presence would be useful. The event that I would place, as the climax, is when Bilbo goes in Smaugs cave. He f
