Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

By JRR Tolkien

The final book of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Return of the King is a heart-wrenching tale of the battle against Sauron and Sarumon. Like books one and two, this book is in two parts: part one and part two. Both parts are extremely enjoyable and made me gasp as I read them.

Part one consists of the battle inside Gondor and outside it. We meet old characters once more such as Gandalf, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn and Faramir. We see feats of bravery never seen before and we see old friends and enemies fall. This part is a bit boring at first but once you get into it, you won’t be able to put the book down.

Part one ends with a nice cliffhanger and brings us into part two which is based mostly around Frodo, Sam, and Gollum (or Smeagol.) It answers some of our most urgent questions such as: “will Sam rescue Frodo” and “will they ever get back to bag end” yet by the end it leaves us with more questions than ever! It shows us sacrifices and leaves us crying during the last few pages because there we will never read it in the same way again.
