The Hobbit was very good. I did not quite like it from the beginning because it was slow. Then it got fun, then it got slow again and it kept doing that. I kept reading because I wanted to read the Battle of the Five Armies in it.
The elves, dwarfs, the Lake People, and a Hobbit were the good guys. They were fighting bad wolves, bats and (I think) Ogres.
The funniest part of the story was wolves + pinecones + Gandolf (the magician) = fireworks!
The story is about Thorin (one of the dwarfs) being one of the kings under the mountains going to kill the dragon, Smug to get his kingdom back. He died. Bilbo (the Hobbit) went back home with Gandolf. The rest of the dwarfs stayed (minus two who died too).
Gullom (I don’t know what he is because I am so confused!) has a ring that makes people disappear. Bilbo finds it laying on the ground when he is in the cave where Gullom is.
The ring helps Bilbo sneak past a lot of people. It helps fight in a war with his knife he calls Sting. I think it is a good ring.
I would recommend the story, but it does get a little slow. I won’t tell you all the fun things, so that you can read it!
I think I will read it again… when I get older.
Right now I am reading The Legend of Anne Murphy. It is a lot easier to read!
