Read The Return of the King

Gorn Forest and there encountered the Ents Gandalf returned miraculously and defeated the evil wizard Saruman Meanwhile Sam and Frodo progressed towards Mordor to destroy the Ring accompanied by SmEagol Gollum still obsessed by his 'precious' After a battle with the giant spider Shelob Sam left his master for dead; but Frodo is still alive in the hands of. For like a shaft clear and cold the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach It s over I have finally finished reading The Return of the King the third and final part of The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien This means that I am officially done with Tolkien s main novels in The Middle Earth universe and I m proud of myself for it I ve read plenty of epic fantasy series difficult and lengthy than this trilogy you might be confused why I m so proud of this However as I ve mentioned in detail in my review for The Fellowship of the Ring after continuously putting the first book into my DNF pile completing this trilogy felt immensely satisfying Plus no gatekeepers despite how many fantasy books I ve read would be able to accuse me of you re not a fantasy fans unless you ve read The Lord of the Rings any And to be honest if someone said this to you you should just ignore them That being said now that I ve finished this series I will have to admit that Tolkien certainly earned his fame The writing may not hold up too well for modern fantasy readers reading this for the first time now but this being published than sixty years ago Truly amazingPicture Road to Mount Doom by Donato GiancolaThere s something magical and timeless in the themes told in The Lord of the Rings and The Return of the King is the conclusion of it all It is keeping the fire of hope burning even in the persisting and overwhelming darkness Often we see underdogs and farmboys story as a clich now but as I repeatedly say they became a clich because they worked a LOT of times In the end it always depends on the execution of the narrative to make us care about the journey and characters of the story but themes of hope and friendships among many others are extremely strong I think we occassionally forget one very important thing about Frodo and Sam and that is the fact that they are underdogs and unlikely heroes I am glad you are here with me Here at the end of all things Sam Really ponder about it again these Hobbits are unlikely heroes small and bereft of any physical abilities except to eat so many times in a day trying to do their best in the name of good friendship loyalty Aragorn Legolas Gimli Theoden Eowyn and all the other warriors too despite being separated from the Ring bearers believed with all their hearts that they will do what s right Everything about it is so inspiring and honestly the friendship between Frodo and Samwise Gamgee is still one of the best friendships portrayed in a fantasy series In addition to these The Return of the King also put Eowyn into the spotlight of the narrative and I LOVED it Tolkien has created one of the most iconic scenes in fantasy with what Eowyn achieved in this book But no living man am I You look upon a woman owyn I am omund s daughter You stand between me and my lord and kin Begone if you be not deathless For living or dark undead I will smite you if you touch him I also think that both The Towers and The Return of the King were far easier and engaging to read than The Fellowship of the Ring The dialogues excluding their constant use of odd Good bye and outdated words between characters were compelling filled with unforgettable passages and the songs were much fewer too Most importantly though there s no Tom Bombadil despite many fans love for this character which I don t think I ll ever understand I seriously found Bombadil to be so out of place in this trilogy There s one thing in this book that I wish newly released fantasy books would still include in their final installment long epilogue I love reading long epilogue or after the battle chapters Obviously I don t mean for an epilogue chapter to be as long the Scouring chapter near the end was so bizarre as the one featured in this book but I m actually surprised that many people hate long epilogues Personally after so many battles and destructions I would love to know about the characters fate after the conflict ended rather than just saying bye bye then immediately in one or two short chapters Sometimes it feels like the story ended before I even got to say goodbye to the characters It is not our part to master all the tides of the world but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set uprooting the evil in the fields that we know so that those who live after may have clean earth to till What weather they shall have is not ours to rule In my opinion the most disappointing elements from this trilogy were the action seuences I ve said this before in my review of The Two Towers Tolkien really didn t focus his writing on the action seuences As someone who utterly loved the movies and the epic battles the battle scenes in these books were inferior and too short to my liking I enjoyed reading the build up and preparations for the battles but I didn t get the explosive impact from reading the war scenes themselves The battle seuences in the films and the officialfan arts conjured out of the moviestext are by far superior to the prose version in my opinion In the movie adaptation the Battle of Helm s Deep in The Two Towers and the Battle of the Pelennor Fields in The Return of the King were stunningly incredible and jaw dropping I can t say the same about the books I ve read a LOT of fantasy books that have better battlewar scenesPicture The Witch King by Chris RahnAfter all said and done I think the answer to whether I love the books or the films is crystal clear The Return of the King is a classic and wonderful conclusion to Tolkien s legendary series I will not deny the importance of Tolkien and this series in shaping and popularizing the fantasy genre that would be insane The Lord of the Rings is a great trilogy but I think the writing is a bit outdated now for modern fantasy readers reading this for the first time I definitely loved the movies and I do believe that The Children of Hurin is Tolkien s best and darkest story I m glad to have read The Lord of the Rings but I doubt I ll ever reread them in the future As for the movies I will rewatch them again and again and again and again I will not say do not weep for not all tears are an evil Series review The Fellowship of the Ring 45 stars The Two Towers 45 stars The Return of the King 45 stars The Lord of the Rings 1215

The Return of the King

The Orcs And all the time the armies of the Dark Lord are massing JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labeled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction By turns comic and homely epic and diabolic the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detai. I was living with my uncle 20 years ago and he is a vast reader in many genres I was looking for something new to read when he told me to read this series He had these beautiful hardback books with fold out maps I had heard of the hobbit and saw the cartoon as a kid I thought it was an okay movie but it didn t really impress me He convinced me that I needed to read this So I started with the hobbit and read one book after the other until I was done with this book I remember being awed by this series I couldn t wait for the last book The world was so grand and epic I loved the race of elves and the Ents I tore through this story as fast as I could go I read the appendix not being able to get enough I was hooked on this series I had a major book hangover and it was a bit sad not to have any story I did go on to read the Silmarillion a bit laterI felt like this was an amazing ending to a beloved series I loved the whole story I think it will be time for a re read soon The movies are stellar and the written story still has so much details to offer I love a soft magic system they are the best

Alternate cover edition hereThe Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures as the uest continues Aragorn revealed as the hidden heir of the ancient Kings of the West joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard and took part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg Merry and Pippin captured by Orcs escaped into Fan. Tolkien is the master of world building With his writing comes generations of detailed history and lore Middle Earth did not simply spring up overnight Instead it is firmly established with the most thorough groundwork that is simply unmatched And here his epic trilogy comes to an end I ve read it many times over the years and reviewing it is no easy task So like my reviews of the first two books I ve picked out ten things I really love about the book Spoilers ahead 1The blade that was broken has been remade From the ashes a fire shall be woken A light from the shadows shall spring Renewed shall be blade that was broken The crownless again shall be king Aragorn never really felt kingly until he was given the sword of Elendil His commanding presence became than just a presence when he wielded the sword We all knew it was coming but it was great to see it happen nonetheless 2The last of the stewards With the return of the kings also ushers in the end of the stewards For all Boromir s weakness and his father s madness Faramir maintained his honour Had he taken the ring for himself the realms of men would have fallen He played a pivotal role in the action and his actions demonstrated that men are not as weak as the elves thought His fate and future titles show such a thing 3Th oden s Sacrifice There are many heroes within this trilogy many men who give up their lives to vanuish evil In spite of Gondor ignoring his calls for aid in spite of Gondor watching Saruman ravish the lands of Rohan Th oden still rides to her aid when his own lands are safe He honours his pledge even when the one made to him was broken Acting on the advice of Gandalf he suashes his own hurt pride and rides for war because he understands what is at stake if he does not Th oden was a true king and one the bravest men of this story He knew what he rode to but he went anyway Arise arise Riders of Th odenFell deeds awake fire and slaughterspear shall be shaken shield be splintereda sword day a red day ere the sun risesRide now ride now Ride to Gondor 4Girl Power What do you fear lady Aragorn askedA cage owyn said To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire There have not been many moments for women to show their strength in this story Arwen s moment in the films was non existent in the book Frodo was saved on the river by an Elf lord called Glorfindel So when Eowen battled the Witch King it is the first major moment Tolkien gave to a female hero In a vastly male dominated genre it was great to read this scene If I have one criticism of Tolkien it s that we didn t see of such things 5Golem s internal warGolem almost comes back into the light He tries so very hard to conuer the ring though ultimately it defeats him and he succumbs to its power Had Frodo never been forced to betray Golem to Faramir in The Two Towers I do think he would have stayed loyal Perhaps he would have survived the events of this book What do you think Could he ever have been on the ships bound to the grey havens after all had done 6The Siege of Minas Tirith This is probably one of the most exciting action seuences I ve read in fiction Sauron s hoard is unleashed in all its brutal fury and the realms of men uake in its wake Their defences are weak their courage faltering but they do have one weapon to stem the tide the white rider Terry Brooks loved it so much he copied the entire thing or thereabouts in The Sword of Shannara 7The Mouth of Sauron Is there any in this rout with authority to treat with me Or indeed with wit to understand me A massively unrepresented character on the screen and one who spent much of the third age waring the dwarves in the north and the elves of Mirkwood The Mouth of Sauron is the vessel of Sauron s voice Second only to the Nazgul in the command structure The Mouth of Sauron is sent in to negotiate threaten and persuade when tact is reuired Nazgul are clearly incapable of such a task so it falls to him I d love to know about this character and his deeds but his end at the Black Gate in the movie is most fitting We can only presume that he also died there in the book though there is no mention of his demise8Hobbit loyalty Frodo Frodo wouldn t have got far without Sam Sam Now Mr Frodo you shouldn t make fun I was being serious Frodo So was ISam saves Frodo so many times in this series Whilst Frodo has the burden of the ring Sam has the burden of Frodo Without him Frodo would be dead most likely murdered by Golem in his sleep or if he made it that far alive eaten by Shelob 9The Hobbit warIn the films Saruman dies at Isengard In the book he is imprisoned by Treebeard only to later convince him to let him escape He and Wormtongue in a senseless act of aggression conuer the Shire Such a situation allows for the Hobbits to show that they no longer need wizards or Kings to deal with their problems They arrive back rally their people and crush the evil that has infected their home Saruman who only has the power of his voice at this point dies in the action All though this dragged the book out a bit it was entirely necessary to show the growth of the characters after the story had ended 10The Grey HavensIt also explains Frodo s decision to leave the Shire something the movies fluffed up The Shire is never the same and any attempt to rebuild it will never make it feel like home for Frodo He has gone through too much to go back to his old life So he needs a new one one where he can heal and attempt to put his past behind him The beautiful lands to the west await him I love this final image But I have been too deeply hurt Sam I tried to save the Shire and it has been saved but not for me It must often be so Sam when things are in danger some one has to give them up lose them so that others may keep them You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

    Well I've come to the end of the road once This was my tenth reading of Tolkien's saga of Middle Earth the first time I visited was in 1986 and it's pointless trying to write a balanced review of my favourite books Suffice it to say that these books are a part of me; written into my DNA if you like and I love th
