The Return of the King (Book)

A compelling fanale to the Lord of the Rings saga. If you read and loved the first two, do not think about missing out on The Return of the King, You will regret it if you do.

It made me cry...

The part that made me cry was when Theoden died even though Eowyn fought to save him (darn Snowmane, he was his master's bane). I loved it how the Eagles came to help...I love this story too much. What helped me the most were the Appendices he had in the back. They had interesting things such as some histories, references, family trees and the like.

The Lord Of The Rings

The Return Of The Kings concludes the epic tale of adventure. Fans of the previous volumes will be amazed as main characters die, the Ring is destroyed, and (basically) they all live happily ever after) This is much more violent than the previous volumes, but anyone 12 and up will be able to cope with the novel's content. This is by far the best fantasy novel of the 50's.

Too much violence
