At the beginning of the novel, Bilbo is sitting outside his home in the Hill when he sees the wizard Gandalf walking by. Gandalf has a map showing a secret door in the side of the mountainand a key to unlock the door.
Although hesitant at first, Bilbo eventually agrees to join the dwarves on their quest. The party travels first to Rivendell, where the elf-lord Elrond discovers some secret words written on the map that can only be seen when the moon is in a certain phase. The next day, Bilbo and the dwarves set out to traverse the Misty Mountains, which they mustcross to get to the Lonely Mountain.
While seeking shelter from the rain in a cave, the party is captured by goblins. Although Gandalf shows up and helps the dwarves escape, Bilbo is separated from the party and wanders around the dark mountain tunnel by himself.
He finds a gold ring, which he puts in his pocket. At the underground lake at the end of the tunnel, he meets a small, slimy creature named Gollum who challenges Bilbo to a contest of riddles.
If Bilbo wins, Gollum will show him the way out of the tunnel; if Gollum wins, he gets to eat Bilbo.
At that moment, however, Bilbo slips on the ring and becomes invisible. He then tricks Gollum into leading him to the exit of the tunnel, where he jumps over him and escapes.
On the other side of the Misty Mountains, Bilbo meets up again with Gandalf and the dwarves. Soon after, however, the group is attacked by Wargs, evil wolves who dwell in the forest. The group escapes with the help of giant eagleswho fly them to Carrock, the home of a wise man named Beorn who can take the shape of a bear.
Next, the party sets out to journey through the dangerous forest of Mirkwood. Gandalf does not join them, but bids them luck and warns them to stay on the path.
They are taken prisoner first by giant spiders and then by wood-elves, who lock the dwarves in a dungeon. However, Bilbo uses his magic ring to help the dwarves escape, and packs them into wine barrels headed to Laketown.
After eating and resting in Laketown, the party finally arrives at the Lonely Mountain. At dusk on the last day of autumn, they see a thrush crack a snail shell against the secret side door leading into the mountain.
A keyhole then suddenly appears in the door, and Thorin uses his key to unlock the door.Because i really love book, i sometimes curious of what is the best seller book in the world right now.
At the bookstore, we often see books labeled with “best sellers” logo on it.
Sometimes the use of this “best-selling” term make us confused.
