My four favorite quotes~
2."Sss, sss my preciouss,"he said. "Sun on the daises it means, it does."-Gollum
3." Maddened and angry they were leaping and howling round the trunks, and cursing the dwarves in their horrible language, with their tongues hanging out, and their eyes shining as red and fierce as the flames."
4."He fell upon their rear, and broke like a clap of thunder through the ring."
My two favorite characters are~
Gollum: Gollum is a small slimy creature. He was as dark as darkness, except for two big round pale eyes in his thin face, long fingernails, and he liked meat .He had a little boat, and he rowed about quite quietly on the lake.
Beorn: Beorn was a Skin-Changer/Great Black bear. He was a kind fellow if he liked you, and when the hobbit and dwarves came he believed their story and offered to help in any way that he could. Beorn gave them advice for Mirkwood.

Bilbo comes home to see that they thought he was dead but soon after he becomes the same as any other hobbit again. He was no longer quite respectable, but he was in fact held by all the hobbits of the neighborhood to be "queer"- except by his nephews and nieces on the Took's side. Bilbo has grown into a strong independent hobbit that can conquer anything he sets his mind to. I think in the future he will make better and improved choices journey or no journey.
