conflict/ compelling plot teaser

the conflict that drives our story is the mountain guarded by a terrible beast and how 13 dwarves and a hobbit get back what belongs to the dwarves by journeying through many dangers, through a dark forest full of spiders and wood elves and a mountain festering with goblins and how they made there way to the lonely mountain.

short passage

"You seem familiar with my name, but i don't seem to remember smelling you before. Who are you where do you come from, may i ask?"

"You may indeed! I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air. I am he that walks unseen."

"So i can well believe," said Smaug, "but that is hardly your usual name."

"I am the clue-finder, the web cutter, the stinging fly. I was chosen for the lucky number."

"Lovely titles!" sneered the dragon. "But lucky numbers don't always come off."

"I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me."

"These don't sound so creditable," scoffed Smaug.

"I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ringwinner and Luckwearer; and i am barrel-rider," went on Bilbo beginning to be pleased with his riddling.

"That's better!" said Smaug. "But don't let your imagination run away with you!"

the reason i chose this passage

This passage shows that how all Bilbo went through he is confident with himself now he can brag about all his adventures to the dragon and not be scared.

who would like this book?

Anyone who likes adventure and suspense would love this book and i am not on to read books if i don't have too but i though this book was great and i chose to read it. If your interested in fantasy you will enjoy this book very much.

I loved this book!

This book has been the best book i have read in a while i love most books that have to do with fantasy and magic and i am planning on starting the lord of the rings so the hobbit adventures i fell in love with don't end just now.
