Return of the King (Lord of the Rings, Bk 3)
Return of the King - Lord of the Rings, Bk 3 Author:J. R. R. Tolkien What is considered to be the most important fantasy epic of the 20th century roars to a close in this third and final volume of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. The armies of the West mass for their final assault upon the forces of Sauron, but they have little hope of prevailing against the Dark Lord. All depends on whether the Ring-bearer Frodo will comp... more »lete his quest, and destroy Sauron's Ring of Power in the fires of Mount Doom. But Frodo is imprisoned in the dungeons of Mordor. Are the quest--and Middle-earth--doomed? There are very few fantasy writers who can claim to be as detailed a world-builder as Tolkien was, and that comes to the fore in this book, as it contains over one hundred pages of appendices concerning the history, cultures, and languages of the peoples of Middle-earth, including the ultimate destinies of most of the main characters in the story.
In the third volume of The Lord of the Rings trilogy the good and evil forces join battle, and we see that the triumph of good is not absolute. The Third Age of Middle-earth ends, and the age of the dominion of Men begins. "An impressive achievement, unique among the imaginative works of our times." -- New York Herald Tribune« less
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!
