Book title: The Hobbit

Author:J. J. R. Tolkien

Main character: Bilbo and Thorin

By:Kevin Xie

Bilbo : He is the main character of the story. He is a Hobbit which means he's a tiny creature. In the beginning he's not much of a hero, but by the end he's a big hero. Bilbo possesses a lot of hidden inner strength, and when the wizard Gandalf tells Bilbo to join a group of dwarves on a journey to get back their gold from a dragon, Bilbo ends up playing an important role as the group's thief. Bilbo's adventures awaken his courage and shows his relentless ability to do what needs to be done.

Thorin: The leader of the dwarves who go on the treasure, Thorin is in many ways a typical member of his race: brave, proud, and greedy for gold. Thorin's grandfather is the king under the Mountain.

Soon after Gandalf leaves the party, it becomes apparent that Thorin is not a good leader: he cannot make plans, makes hasty and poor decisions, and generally relies on Bilbo to see him through his adventures, all the while treating Bilbo like an insignificant underling. Once Thorin gets his hands on Smaug's treasure, he becomes even more. In general, Thorin works much worse than Bilbo.
