In thisnovel Tolkien uses many smaller conflicts to add to the already heaping portionsof adventure and intrigue contained within the covers. Some are very thrillingsuch as the time all of the dwarves and the hobbit are captured and taken downto the goblin’s lair, or the time Bilbo comes in contact with that strangecreature Gollum.
