I didn't like Bilbo at first. He was not a very adventurous and likeable character. It was as if he was dragged to go with the dwarves to claim their treasure back.But the story was very interesting and I liked how the plot developed. It was such a fun read!And although it was not a character-driven story and the dwarves had not that much depth, Bilbo still developed and was a changed Hobbit after this adventure. I haven't read any fantasy for a while and I wasn't a very big fan of this genre, but I wanted to read it for a long time now and now that the movie is out and I wanted to see it, the timing to read it was perfect. I am really excited now to read The Lord of the Rings trilogy!
