The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

My name is Anna. I go to Hadley Jr. High and I reviewed The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkein.

I liked The Hobbit because there were many magical creatures and events that I felt like I was experiencing, too. Bilbo goes on a special journey with the dwarves and Gandalf that no Hobbit has gone on before. Bilbo learns who to trust and who his enemies are, and I liked seeing how people helped him or hurt him throughout the way.

Bilbo nearly dies after trying to steal from the giants and barely escapes the fast-running Orcs who are after him and the dwarf Thorin (who was king under the mountain after his father died, though a certain dragon disagreed). I liked seeing how Bilbo cunningly escaped and got his friends out of messes, but I wondered if he’d be able to save all his friends in the final battle. I felt like I was going through all the hard times Bilbo faced with the dwarves and Gandalf and understood how, only being a Hobbit, there were many times Bilbo longingly wished to be back in his comfy chair at home.

But at the end of this long, terrifying journey, Bilbo is no longer a little old Hobbit who sits around all day and gossips. He is now a burglar with great skills who will never be forgotten by dwarves, hobbits, and a great wizard.

If you love Harry Potter, you should try this book. Check out The Hobbit.
