The main theme is the battle between good and evil and about good in the end always succeeds nothing near to the complexity of things in the book itself but its only the big line The battle is no imagenary battle but takes really place In the end The Battle of Five Armies is fought The story takes place in Middle-Earth in the Third Age of its history Its a land and time of Elves Dwarves and Dragons The story contains the elements of a fantasy story but in comparison with The Lord of the Rings is much like a fairy tale not as complex and thorough The narrator is omniscient but mainly follows Bilbo like a sort of shoulder-camera Bilbos thoughts are sometimes quite clearly expressed by his behaviour You also get a rather good peek inside the head of Bilbo especially when hes alone somewhere The symbolism is that good wants to save the world and destroy the oppressors but meanwhile evil wants to turn the furtile landscapes into smouldering heaps of ash and to enslave all the people to blacken the sky and annihilate all living green things that crawl or breath or perhaps just stand upon the very soil The genre is alternative realism its a fantasy novel and the author creates a whole new world to be experienced by the reader The reader needs a good imagination to really see the world in hisher mind and thus understand the story The title refers to the main character and our hero Bilbo He is the hobbit and the book s about a hobbit so why dont call it The Hobbit The book is written in an easy readable way with a mysterious and old but not a complex form In Dutch its even rather a child-bedtime-story-book than a fantasy novel So dont read it in Dutch or any other language but English The climax is in the end
