Summary: Most hobbits are isolated from the rest of the races and they only know their own language. Bilbo knows how to speak with elves, but it’s a group of dwarves that come to his rescue. He can fight alongside Thorin without speaking, but not knowing the language when suddenly traveling with a group of strange dwarves becomes a bit of a problem. Especially when Bilbo doesn’t even know that Thorin has declared them bonded.
Recommendation: Well this was interesting, a different spin on Hobbits with them being even more insular. Although Thorin is just as high handed as he ever is, but he and Bilbo are just too cute together.
