“Sorry! I do not want any adventures, thank you.”- Bilbo Baggins (Chapter 1, page 7) I believe that Bilbo Baggins is the most affected by this adventure. At the beginning he was an ordinary hobbit sitting on his lawn, by the end he has killed Spiders, escaped from goblins and most impressive of all, stole the Arkenstone from Smaug. This journey has changed Bilbo as a mold would shape clay. Imagine Bilbo as white play dough, he has been put into the molds (the molds of the tasks he has done.
In both stories the authors put an obstacle in the way of the villain to stop them from gaining the power, in Beowulf the King’s throne/King can’t be touched because it’s protected by God, then in the Harry Potter series, Harry is protected by his scar and he keeps Voldemort from gaining the ultimate power that he craves. Both Grendel and Voldemort do whatever it takes to make their way to the top, to get the power, and they don’t care who they have to take out in the process. Grendel every night for 12 years would come up into Herot, the mead hall, and kill the same amount of people, whereas Voldemort kills sporadically, whoever threatens his power or he doesn’t like, there’s no real routine or coincidence to Voldemort’s killings. Though Voldemort and Grendel may seem very similar, they’re actually more different than they are

In Ingolstadt, she almostly discovered Victor’s secrets. During the incident(movie), where the monster have escaped from Ingolstadt and was brought to a farm in which he hides in a pig coop, he learns the sounds of instruments from the blind man playing a flute and languages from the teaching of the mom to her child of how to read. This was correctly portrayed because when the monster have helped the blind man from the landlord following he was beaten with a walking step causing him to be hatred to his creator where he promise to revenge against Victor. The grade “D-” is suited with the movie which I consider due too many flaws in the movie where scenes were untrue based on the novel. With the flow of the movie, it would still be a must-watch movie, even though, there’s excessive flaws.
Perry Smith grew up in a malformed family in which his mother had “‘soured her soul’, honed her tongue to the wickedest point” and his father cruelty left them and later took out of his anger on Perry. I have heard of tons of sweet little stories to praise the selflessness of the love from parents. Nevertheless, for Perry, his father threatens him by saying that “Perry, I’m the last thing living you’re ever gonna see’, which was just caused by a biscuit. As what Perry said about his father that he was “like a child”, Perry’s father had never truly realized his responsibility for the whole family and his life. When Perry described his helplessness after walk: “the lodge was dark, and all the doors were locked.

Dr. Reiner would instead think to do the unimaginable, use a false memory charm in place of electroconvulsive therapy. He considered this course of action seriously. It would break several laws the Ministry of Magic passed in regards to using magic on muggles, but it was also possible that his patient might not be muggle. How peculiar it would be if Arabella Black of Yorkshire Dales was actually a Pure-blooded witch. (While she certainly resembled the family, he would hope she was otherwise unrelated.)
Because if he did he wouldn’t be a hero. If he ran away every time the Professors told him too he wouldn’t be able to save people. What hero doesn’t break rules? All these banners of Harry Potter need to remember that this is not a real story. Harry, Hermione, Ron, Hogwarts none of it exists.
