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

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.

Contains the appendices, which are more important to ringies than the books themselves. I'm still waiting for the movie of Appendix A, I wonder who will play Tar Ancalime?

Ack. One of the worst three books I've ever read. I like to finish what I start and I did but it was painful. Maybe this appeals to the wanderlust of some people, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I am probably all alone out there with this review but it is what it is.
