The Hobbit

Now that Bilbo’s adventure is finally over I have a question for you. 

How has Bilbo been changed forever? Will he ever be the same? Explain using your own ideas and examples from the text.

    Bilbo has definitely been changed forever because he went from relaxing in a hobit hole saying “I don’t want to go on an adventure” to stabbing and killing spiders in the forest and rescuing 13 dwarfs from giant spiders. Then to make it even worse he went to stealing from right in front of a dragon; literally, he even back talked the dragon proving he has changed. If he was still same old Bilbo he would have not done that for sure.

    I don’t think Bilbo is ever is going to be the same. He left a grumpy old hobbit who doesn’t like adventures, and came back a hobbit who always wants to go on adventures. And now he’s good friends with all the races of creatures he met on his journey. Well, not the goblins though. I think Bilbo has changed a lot on his year worth journey. Even if I wanted Bibo to change back to the grumpy old hobbit he was, I don’t think J.R.R Tolkien would’ve allowed that.

    After the adventure the hobbit Bilbo has changed forever and here is why he has changed. Like when he was fighting the spiders he has never fought before and that is a big change. Also when Bilbo stole the Arkenstone. The most prized position of the dwarf, Thorin that is a big change for Bilbo.

    I think Bilbo changed forever by being braver because when he was at the hobbit, he didn’t want to go on any adventures. He was just relaxing living a normal life but when Gandalf told him he had to go on the adventure, which is when he changed, on his adventure. During his adventure, he defended the dwarfs from big spiders, he crept in the Elvin Palace to save a dwarf (forget his name) and he crept around and fought Smog (a dragon). He will probably never be the same by not declining an adventure because all what he has been through, will never change him.

    Bilbo has changed because it has been one year since he was at his hobbit hole and Bilbo did alot of exploring and stealing gold and giving the Arkenstone away from the dwarfs. Bilbo gave the Arkenstone away to the elf king and Bard. Bard is the person who killed Smog the dragon and sadly Thorin died. What I think changed Bilbo is that he left Hobbiton for a long time.

    Bilbo has changed because he knows how to fight and turn invisible later he will become like Gollum.

    I think Gandalf knew this whole thing would happen. Bilbo was like the chosen one for dwarves. I can see Bilbo has changed because he was afraid to do anything, but when the dwarves came he was a whole different person. Like when Bilbo went to see smaug, he wasn’t really scared. He also fault the trolls, but he wasn’t really good at sneaking, also he fault the giant spiders that’s how I think Bilbo change. 🙂

    I think that Bilbo changed because when Gandalf came to his door with all of the dwarves he didn’t want to go on an adventure, he wanted to stay in his hobbit hole. During the adventure he started to like this adventure because he meet new people and went places that he has never been before.

    After the adventure Bilbo has change. These are some of the ways he has changed wanting more adventures (in the lord of the rings). Being a thief, he would never steal before the adventure. Fighting, he would not fight before now he will. He was a stay at hobbit, not now he likes adventures. Fighting goblins, and spiders. Being friends of dwarfs, elves, and man.

    I think Bilbo changed alot from the Dwarvs and Gandof, and in the text it said Gandof said “Blibo you have changed alot.

    Bilbo will never be the same because Bilbo went for went for a long adventure that was much different from his life. Now that Bilbo stole the ring that he found on his side of the cave, where Gollum lives. Bilbo will not be the same because of his adventure, the war. and the gold

    I think that Bilbo is changed forever because he has faced a dragon, trolls, goblins, and hunger. Bilbo has traveled to the lonely mountain and back to hobbiton. Also he deified death himself. The adventure he went through was life changing.

    In the book, I think Bilbo changed a lot because in the beginning of the book Bilbo was not a type of adventure guy. He would only just stay home in his hobbit hole. The next day someone knock on the door he was so tall he have a long white beard and a kind of witch hat and his name was Gandalf he was not a hobbit like Bilbo. On there long period of there journey Bilbo was a very good theft he steeled the ring from Gollum. And after that Bilbo found a sword when the dwarves where trap in the woods with the giant the sword will light up and that means on of the giant are around. After when they where done with the giants Bilbo started to get use to being a theft and that’s when he realized he was starting to change a lot. And when he came back to his home town he didn’t feel the same there any more he felt different then the other hobbits.

    I think that Bilbo will change forever because before he never wanted to go on adventures but he has now faced a dragon, goblins, trolls, and hunger. When he went on the adventure he did not go alone he went with Gandalf, Thorne, Fili, Kili, Bifer, Bomber Bofer and Bilbo and after the adventure when he came back people said that he was dead but he wasn’t so I think that is why he changed.
