Topic: The Hobbit- JRR Tolkien
The book started off by introducing a number of concepts that were necessary to understand the book. Such as explaining what a hobbit and a dwarf are. The author introduced the habits of these creatures and some of the history behind them. The protagonist in this story is a hobbit, by the name of "Bilbo Baggins." My guess is that the antagonist is a dragon by the name of Smaug. Bilbo had been expecting Gandalf to return to his "Hobbit hole" for some tea. However instead thirteen incredibly rude dwarfs arrived first. It becomes evident to the reader that Bilbo is an especially polite individual. He went out of his way to accommodate these thirteen surprise visitors, and even though he was very frustrated he made sure to always use his manners. This reminds me of a story, on Christmas Eve a lonely elderly couple was at their home when there came a knock on the door. It was a homeless man that was begging for food. The couple was so desperate for company that they allowed him to come inside for a meal. Not so long after, another man appeared at the door, this continued until there was 12 of them. Most people would have been angry and forced the men to leave, however, these two people were not miserable at all. Instead, they were overjoyed because they were no longer lonely.
