Upon watching Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey I couldn’t help but notice some differences between the character I had imagined from reading the book and the character portrayed by actor Martin Freeman. Bilbo Baggins is introduced to the reader in the very first chapter An Unexpected Party as a seemingly typical hobbit; he loves food, his pipe and the comforts of his home in Bag End. Bilbo is a Baggins who are considered “very…respectable, not only because most of them were rich, but also because they never had any adventures or did anything unexpected” (12). However, there is more to Bilbo than meets the eye as he is also part Took who are “not entirely hobbitlike” (13) due to their knack for adventure.

In Tolstoy’s “Ivan the Fool,” Ivan is a quiet and easy-going young man living in the Russian countryside during the 1800s. He always helps others even at his own expense. He also has two elder
"He had forgotten his first building, and the fear and doubt of its birth. He had learned that it was so simple. His clients would accept anything, so long as he gave them an imposing façade….impressed, and the guests did not care anyway." Part 1, Chapter 6, pg. 81.
