    Story
    (8928)

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    What did you like best about The Hobbit? What did you like least?

    The performance is all that kept me listening. The story couldn't have been more predictable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Truly amazing! Well over a dozen believable characters by one man.
