What I love most about this book is the appendix section. Learn to write in runes!

Phenomenal! Exciting conclusion to the LOTR trilogy completes what was originally written as one enormous volume.

What can I say? If you've come this far with Frodo & his buddies, you can't stop now! this is the most amazingly well written story! I have read all of these books at least ten times since I first picked up The Hobbit in the fourth grade. A MUST READ!

Loved the last book of the trilogy. Good versus evil - a fight the finish. This book will keep you turning the pages.

The story ends...and the appendices are as richly detailed as the story itself. This trilogy is hard to break into pieces--I have never been able to read one volume and not pick up the next immediately after.

While the evil might of the Dark Lord Sauron swarmed out to conquer all Middle-Earth, Frodo and Sam struggled deep into Mordor, seat of Sauron's power. To defeat the Dark Lord, the accursed Ring of Power had to be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom. But the way was impossibly hard, and Frodo was weakening. Weighed down by the compulsion of the Ring, he began finally to despair.

It's difficult to write comments about such a wonderful read. I shall include only a few details which hopefully encourage others to read the book. I will begin with the siege of Gondor.

Gondor is besieged by the dark and the brave men defending it are discouraged and desperate again and again as the gate is bombarded. Finally, the gate falls and the only defender is Gandalf the magician. Many have died horrible deaths and the fear of the future pervades all. Then a cock crows and a horn is heard in the deep, dark silence. Help has arrived!

As the allies arrive the tide turns and seige of Gondor is won but many of brave defenders died in the process. The fight was furious but the men of Gondor and their allies succeed. Gandalf is now in charge and recommends that an army chase the enemy from the field to distract the enemy from the quest undertaken by Frodo and Sam. At the end of this section the army is surrounded by the enemy and Pippin falls into the dark. He wishes his friend, Merry, was by his side.

The king and his men fought on and are surrounded when Frodo and Sam at last gain the mountain. When the ring is destroyed so also is evil throughout the land. The king won his battle, returned to Gondor is crowned and wed. Frodo, Sam, Pippin, and Merry returned to the Shire to find mayhem to clear. Once the ruffians and Sharkey were gone, Sam set about organizing cleanup and planted the beloved trees to bring the shire back.

These are only a few of the highlights of this wonderful read. I read the earlier books months ago. My only recommendation is to read them closer together as one tends to forget the geography of these mythical lands. One cannot, however, forget the characters.

for several years as a preteen - teen I read the trilogy each year, started at Christmas and read The Hobbit, and then these three. Oh how I loved the time spent immersed in Tolkien's world. One of the best gifts anyone has ever given me.

Great--but of course it is! It's Tolkien!
