Story Writing Helper There are lots of people in the story, so it is sort of hard to follow. In the beginning there is an introduction where the author tells what a hobbit is. This introduction gives the general background, which makes the story easier to understand. The plot development in the middle isn’t complicated. The ending is expected since the author gives hints about it.
As in the introduction when he says that the hobbit would gain something, this means he doesn’t die. The last climax takes a long time to occur, the fight between good and evil. After the climax there is the long trip home. It is really boring since there is nothing to expect and the reader knows that the hobbit would get home safely. I think it should have been shorter. Character Development The dialogues, monologues, actions and notes of the author do the creation of the characters.
An example for dialogue: “Also I should like to know about risks, out-of-pocket expenses..” (Bilbo, page 22), it shows that he is not ready to jump into things so quickly. A good example for action is when Thorin blocked the Gate in the mountain, that shows that the treasure is important to Thorin and he would rather die than give it away. An example for notes by the author: “You are familiar with Thorin’s style on important occasions..” (page 210) the author talks directly to the reader and helps him understand the text. The main character is Bilbo. He is the one that makes many things occur by his mistakes and luck. The author gives long descriptions of him and refers to him a lot, he also made him save his companions’ lives and without him the plot wouldn’t have been the same. The supporting cast is divided into the more important characters (such as the dwarves and Gandalf) and into less important ones (such as the elf guards that caught the party in the woods).
It is hard to believe that the characters can exist, since in reality, they can’t. Setting The story occurs in the imaginary world called Middle Earth, it was somewhat like the Chronicles of Narnia. Since the story happens in many places over Middle Earth, the author gives a good description where important things happen. In other places he gives a more general description. Most places give the reader a picture in their brain because the author uses words that give good descriptions.
The story happens within a year. It starts in the spring and ends about the same time a year later.
