The Hobbit Book Report

Uploaded by Alejandro on Aug 21, 2002


The 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 gives a deep description only in places where important things to the plot happen but in other places he gives a more general description. Most places make the reader have a picture in his brain of them; the author uses the appropriate words and gives good descriptions.

It takes the story about a year to occur. It starts at the spring and ends in about the same time the year after. Parts of the story take place in every time of the day (and night). The mood is of fantasy world, where everything (like magic and huge treasures) can appear and happen.

He carries an old sword and he is heir to the throne established in Smaug's mountain. Unfortunately, Thorin's negative tendencies reveal themselves in his power-hungry maneuvers at the novel's end. Smaug: is the major villain of the story. He is a dragon that has terrorized several towns and, within his mountain, he guards a massive horde...
